A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

Not so long ago, the links between Romanticism and vexed issues such as class, gender, or race, were barely explored within Romantic studies, despite that some Romantics embraced very eagerly what today sound like very unacceptable ideas such as the division of humankind into two primary racial groups:  the “culturally superior and beautiful Europeans” on the one hand, and the “Mongols”, namely “the ugly and inferior” Asians, Africans and Americans on the other.[1]

The geopolitical space called ‘South Asia’ has resulted in a literature that is the product of various forms of contact i.e. travel, pilgrimage, colonization, trade etc. Social movements and historical changes have triggered transformations globally and it reinvigorated the ongoing dialogue regarding the true interpretation of South Asian literature. Philosophers like Merleau Ponty (phenomenologist), Martin Buber (existentialist) or Bakhtin all helped in reconceptualised understanding of human relations and thereby, in turn leading to a greater understanding of South Asian literature from newer and emerging perspectives.
