Proposing that orality and alphabetic literacy play a fundamental role in shaping visual storytelling, Nayar challenges the way we think about how film stories get shaped, as well as the notion of film as an autonomous mode of storytelling construction. Narrative and aesthetic principles of film, she demonstrates, are significantly impacted by ways of knowing that haveor, in some cases, that have notemerged as a consequence of a cultural investment in reading, writing and print.

Between close readings of Bollywood cinema and modernist art cinema in 1950s1990s, as well as of the many cinemas in between-including Indian middle cinema and middle-class cinema - Cinematically Speaking casts a pioneering lens on what goes into shaping screen stories worldwide. It is a theoretical work certain to alter our understanding and future exploration of the narrative-film species.
