The New Wave ﬁlms were extremely diverse, and ranged from realist portrayals of contemporary Indian reality, especially the reality of small town and village India to experimental and modernist work that foregrounded abstraction and stylization.

S. Vasan was speaking as an exemplary practitioner of the melodramatic art when he opined that stories were the collective property of humanity, an ocean from which anyone was free to help themselves. Realism and psychologism pose a double challenge to the melodramatic art and it is a wellknown fact that after psychoanalysis and World War I, classical melodramatic narratives quickly descended into obsolescence in capitalist countries. What survives as melodrama in Hollywood cinema—women’s melodrama for instance—is marked by a compromise with realism.
