    A no-holds-barred exposé of the Hindi film industry's sordid underbelly. Ali Amjad comes from Benares to make it as a scriptwriter in Bombay, only to experience the absurd and tragic reality behind the film world s glamour as he navigates through it with his fellow strugglers. A short, fascinating novel set in the Bombay of the 1970s, Rahi Masoom Raza s Scene: 75 is a crazy kaleidoscope of stories within stories populated by a cast of extraordinary and memorable but also cynical and manipulative characters, from struggling directors and wealthy lesbians, to film-obsessed social climbers and sleazy producers. In this irreverent, surreal, deeply satirical and darkly humorous work, the author s biting prose takes an unflinching look at both Hindu Muslim and class relations, as well as at how human ties corrode and wither because of ambition and self-interest. Superbly translated by Poonam Saxena, this lost classic from Rahi Masoom Raza rips off the tinsel curtain that hides the film industry s hypocrisy, insecurity and desperation for success. It is a novel that will delight and disturb in equal measure.
