Time-tested frames

Journalist and critic A Chandrasekhar's new book offers a profound insight into the part-tyrannical, part-romantic hold of time on filmmakers

The best feature of the book "When time ticks in the shores of Consciousness" is the pain undertaken by the author to patiently dissect a number of major films and identify the influence of time in the realisation of a film project. Comparisons linking the master cinematographers and the present day realities in television and cinema are beautifully woven into the book. Like the subject it handles, the book offers a little complex reading. But with a right mix of film, television, Fm radio and extract from screen plays the author tries to ease the effort of the reader.
