The cinematic vision is the lens that captures dilemma of ethics, aesthetics and logic in relation to physics and metaphysics. It reinforces the camera eye of human mind to revamp the past in terms of the present knowledge in order to reclaim the origin and history, besides to authenticate the fact of the human mind and nature. The cinematic visuals revert the understanding of practices, tensions and perception and contribute in seeking answers to cultural sovereignty or cultural slavery. The film directors, producers, screen writers have been keen in presenting cinematic imagination viz-a-viz colonial structures, which mostly configures centralism, homogenizing influence of national-imperial opposition. The research articles and papers should attempt to answer analytically as well as critically with the help of their observations and cultural studies on the cinema - How do the postcolonial filmmakers resist oppositional strains of post-independence and pre-independence of their modern nation states? How do contradictory forces in a film reconfigure a new understanding of cultural politics and diverse epistemologies? How does a film challenge global concentration against dominant discourse of hegemonic culture? How do the film graphic, devices, techniques and cinematic strategies address nation, nationalism and decolonization? If the films redress such issues, then how do they absorb spectator-onscreen relationship to find alternative interpretations?
