A Book-cum-Journal on some of the most heart warming fables of classic Indian movies and how tea played a vita role in them.
‘Tea Talkies’ is a tribute to the creators of Hindi cinema and their art which encompasses myriad aspects of literature, music and culture –an art akin to devotion.
It evokes vignettes from impactful Hindi films which engage, enthuse and enlighten. Cinema about the warmth of relationships, of mutual understanding, of caring conversations, of hope, courage and faith.
And tea as a leitmotif.
Perhaps, we can pause as we hold the cup and view beyond infinity. Perhaps we can reflect on the goodness within and the beauty without. Perhaps we can glimpse grace and courtesy in an interlude.
Cinema and chai – both aspire for eternity in a single moment.
Foreword by Imtiaz Ali
The two great loves of India are brought together to magical effect in Tea Talkies. This beautifully designed book warms your heart – it shows you that just as our lives are incomplete without either tea or cinema , the two are inseparable as well.
