INDIA REBORN charts the rise of one of the world’s emerging superpowers. Cinematic in scope, the four-hour series unfolds with intimacy and insight, giving viewers a window into the lives of the people living through India’s dramatic transformation. A potent mixture of dreams and despair, INDIA REBORN is a fascinating look into a land that has a leading role in reshaping the world.
In the first part of the series, Myth & Might, we journey into India's rich tapestry of myth and growing economic might. Next, in Manufacturing Dreams, the spotlight is on a society where rising prosperity has set traditional values in turmoil, with the stories seen through the colourful prism of Bollywood. Part 3, India is on the Move, displays the excitement of life in cities pulsating with new wealth, but which is in dramatic contrast to rural life and the archaic caste system. Finally, in Mother India, food both unites and divides in today's India as we see how this sprawling, diverse land feeds itself at a time of unparalleled change.
