In her essay on Telugu actor Vijayasanthi, author Tejaswini Niranjana questions the celebration of on-screen vigilantism in Indian films. What makes it popular? What does female vigilantism, in particular, mean for the larger conversation around the representation of women in film? What can be said about the uncomfortable relationship between gender and spectatorship? Niranjana examines these questions by working out a theory of masquerade, against the backdrop of Vijayasanthi's films in the 1990s.
