The book The Patels of Filmindia: Pioneers of Indian Film Journalism is a collector s item featuring beautiful images of hand-painted posters and covers that portrayed the superstars of the times: Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok Kumar, Nargis, Madhubala, among others. A section on Filmindia s reviews, gossip, and the overwhelmingly popular Q&A column makes this book a thoroughly enjoyable read.
