The Fearless Nadia Films, A Shimmering Mixture Of Action, Eroticism And Progressive Ideas, Were Unlike Anything Indian Audiences Had Seen So Far. Coming At A Time When India Was Struggling For Independence, These Films Also Carried Subtle Nationalist Propaganda As Fearless Nadia, The Daughter Of A British Soldier, Became The Cult Cinematic Symbol Of The Indian Freedom Struggle. How Did A Blonde With European Features Become A Celebrated Stunt Queen In Popular Indian Cinema? How Could An Indian Actress Of The 1930's Become A Rage With Feminists In The West At The Turn Of The Millennium?
Dorothee Wenner's Absorbing Biography Traces The Nadia Story From Her Birth In Australia, Her Stint As A Shop Assistant, A Secretary, A Chorus Girl And A Variety Performer In A Circus To Her Unprecedented Stardom And Its Aftermath. In The Process, She Also Vividly Brings To Life A Fascinating Era Of Indian Cinema In Which Passionate Film-Makers Overcame Tremendous Financial, Technical And Logistical Odds To Create Celluloid Magic.
