dc.description.abstract In recent years, a postcolonial study is an extensive genre of its own in the field of literature. Post colonialism refers to a discourse which seeks to address the dilemmas of identity due to colonialism. And literature is a form through which the colonized express their sentiments and thoughts. In doing so, these writers prefer using the language of the colonizer as a way of 'writing back to the empire'. The researcher in her paper seeks to showcase South Asian postcolonial literature and the effects that follow colonialism. The paper will further compare the selected literary texts with its visual portrayal in cinema. The birth of cinema aims in educating people by reaching out to them in a subtle way. It not only entertains but also informs its audience world-wide. en_US
