Of Names of Women in Hindi Cinema: An Exploration in Semantics


  • Anindita Ghose



Names are of central import for characterisation in Hindi cinema and more so for women because their roles are often not very well sketched out. Women are given less screen time than their male counterparts and therefore, to establish their ‘character’ names function as a shortcut tool. Semantics- the study of meaning is applicable to a plethora of subject areas and names are definitely an important focus point.
