In this book, I have discussed a detailed view of the theories of Auteur theory and Marxism- the third sense is an applied example of the two theories. Indian Cinema has been miserably, or sometimes intentionally deprived of the magic of Cinema. Hardly has the people understood the charisma of the medium, here in India (if we talk of intellectual Cinema). 3 Senses of Cinema will showcase the two major film theories in Indian context and a Case Study on Ritwik Ghatak has been used to show the practical application of such theories. Film is such a medium that has changed and evolved with the trends in our society. Similarly, senses of Cinema has got amalgamated or commercialized with the pace of changing gratifications of the urban natives. But, Auteur theory is such a belonging for Cinema that can ever be evolved, even if done, it would nothing more than a vague phenomenon. What about Marxism? It is something more than being a theory- it is a part of a stratas lifestyle. Although, it is an endangered form of thinking in our country, the most innovative and creative thoughts came from the spectrum. Hence, while talking about Cinema, we cannot leave it aside. In a diverified country as ours, Ritwik Ghatak is one such person who stood along without altering his motives. When you read about it, or read about Ghataks mannerism of making films, you will surely be able to realize what I am talking about. Wholly, Cinema resurrected in its live form is sumarized into these pieces of paper.
