‘Aa jaane jaan . . .’

Jia Mata and Lipikor on portrayals of female desire in Bollywood films and songs
Lipikor's favourite cultural investigations involve looking for leitmotifs, conscious or accidental, across genres and generations of cinema, literature and music. A sales professional with an information technology company, he returned to Kolkata in 2020 after spending nearly two decades in Bangalore. He also dabbles in writing occasional short stories and reviews in Bengali, and has run out of excuses as to why his cine blog (filmswithlipikor.blogspot.com) has not been updated for so long. He uses his non-de-plume to distinguish himself from a way more well-known namesake.
