History of Indian Cinema
The first exposure to motion pictures which India received was in 1896, when the Lumiere Brothers' Chinematographe unveiled six soundless short films at Watson Hotel, Esplanade Mansion, Bombay on July 7. And the first exposing of celluloid in camera by an Indian and its consequent screening took place in 1899, when Harishchandra Bhatvadekar shot two short films and exhibited them under Edison's projecting kinetoscope. By 1920, the Indian movie industry was fairly well established producing an average of 27 films every year. International recognition came to it with the Cannes award for best human document followed by an unprecedented crop of foreign and national awards.
By the 1950’s, films moved from black-and-white to color and romantic movies became the lash fare. Today the Film Industry produces films for all the sections of society some providing Entertainment to the masses and some imparting social values to the people of India and rest of the world. Indian Film Industry has come a long way and is growing in value year after year.
Bollywood films are usually musicals. Most commercial Indian movies last for at least three hours often termed as ‘masala movies’ and are made to appeal to all segments of the audience. Have songs, dances, love triangles, comedy, daredevil thrills, melodrama and violence all rolled into one.
Bollywood Songs And Dances
While most actors, especially today, are excellent dancers, few are also singers. Songs are generally pre-recorded by professional playback singers with actors lip-synching the words, often while dancing. Playback singers are prominently featured in the opening credits and have their own fans. The composers of film music, known as music directors, are also well known. Their songs can make or break a film and usually do.
Bollywood dancing is a commercial name for modern Indian dancing. It's a combination of classical Indian dance, folk dancing such as Bhangra, dances of historic northern Indian courtesans and sometimes has a Latino and Arabic influence. Nowadays, Indian dance elements often blend with Western dance styles. It's fun and very expressive and there's a lot of deep meaning behind music in the films. You can actually express what the music means, through the graceful movements of the body.
