Abstract

Since the middle of the 1970s at least three Jesus films have been released in India, the last one in 2004. This article offers an analysis of the two most circulating movies, KARUNA MAYUDU and SHANTI SANDESHAM. First, the focus is on the contents of the movies and the measure in which they reflect the contents of the gospels. Then attention is paid to their affinity with the Indian context and with the so-called Bollywood films. Finally the Christologies of these films are discussed and analysed. KARUNA MAYUDU seems to stand nearer to the gospels, but SHANTI SANDESHAM has a certain affinity with dalit theology.
