    100 years of Indian Cinema

    Indian cinema is celebrating its birth centenary. In 2013, Indian Cinema completes it 100 years. From then till now there were many watershed moments , which consists of films produced across India, which includes the cinematic culture of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab and West Bengal. Movies have captured the attention of the audiences since the time they have begun and have been dubbed and casted in different languages. India is the World’s largest producer of films. From black and white to 3D our Indian cinema has spread its wings and continues to retain its basic essence – thrill.

    The first full-length motion picture in India was produced by Dadasaheb Phalke who is considered to be the pioneer of Indian film industry. He was the one to introduce India to World cinema. As the years passed by, the story structure changed, the characters changed, the content changed. Masala films were the demand of the time. 

    Sooner and later, the style of movies changed from silent movies to suspense, from thriller to romance. The age of angry young man was introduced whose prominent role was played by the most popular Amitabh Bachhan. Sholey, Zanjeer and Deewar were the heart throbbing movies of that time. Back to back hits were given by Dharmendra, Rajesh Khanna, Dev Anand, Jitendra. The actresses were paced at the same speed and were not behind. Vyjayanthi Mala, Nargis, Rekha, Sridevi, Hema Malini, Sharmila Tagore became heartthrobs of the nation.

    As the time passed a large number of blockbusters hit the big screens. The actresses continued to woo audiences from their stunning performances. As the world has become a global village, the Indian Cinema has reached out to international audiences. Bollywood has etched itself not only in India but also in the global podium. 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, and Warner Bros put a stamp of confirmation that Indian Cinema has spread its genre all around the globe. 

    Despite of all peculiarities, socio-economic, cultural and political changes have been reflected from the Indian Cinema. Due to the emergence of new age filmmakers like Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj, Rajkumar Hirani, Indian cinema has undergone a massive change. A number of Indian films from different regions are often included among the greatest films of all time in various critics and directors polls.

    The Government of India in cooperation with the film industry has lined up host of activities to celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema. Here's hoping that Indian Cinema continues to entertain us the way they've been doing since 10 decades.
