Additional Information: This article examines the ways in which young British-Asians conceptualise the links between sexual attitudes, values and behaviours in thier communities and in Hindi popular cinema. It is based on original and in-depth qualitative research carried over a three year period with young British Bangladeshi, Indians, Pakistanis and Nepalis across London and involving place based observations as well as interviews. This particular aspect of the research considered the ways in which young South Asian viewers in the UK conceive of kissing, pre-marital sex, sexual harassment, marriage, romance and ethnicity, with a view to understanding the gaps and absences in their conventional sex education, community norms on marriage, religion and sexuality in a diasporic setting and the pleasures and learning implicit in film viewing. The article combines a close reading of sequences in contemporary films dealing with these issues with critical analysis of young people's responses cued by these scenes. Such research linking the social contexts of Hindi film viewers, their beliefs and behaviours and the films they watch in terms of the positive educative potential has not been carried out before either in India or the UK.
