My name is Mike Barnum and I am a writer for several film and television related periodicals including CLASSIC IMAGES, FILMS OF THE GOLDEN AGE, VIDEO WATCHDOG, FILMFAX and SCARLET: THE FILM MAGAZINE where my interviews with actors and actresses from Hollywood’s Golden Age have been featured.

I first became a fan of Indian popular cinema around 2003 after seeing the Shilpa Shetty/Akshay Kumar/Sunil Shetty melodrama DHADKAN. Over time, watching  Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu, and Kannada films has become an addiction…but a delightful one from which I hope to never recover!
