This essay considers the history of Soviet-Indian coproductions focusing on Ali Baba and 40 Thieves (1980) as a political allegory over the fate of the multination state.
It addresses the formal utopian character of the fi lm and the excessive threat of sexual violence in the song-and-dance numbers.
