The Glorious 100 Years of Indian Cinema
Mumbai: Father of Indian cinema, Dhundiraj Govind Phalke, popularly known as Dadasaheb Phalke, directed and produced Raja Harishchandra (the first silent movie) in 1913, and laid the foundation for the beginning of a massive feature film industry that now shines in India and abroad.

Dadasaheb made various silent movies after Raja Harishchandra and paddled his way upstream to an unknown terminus.

Gradually, era of silent movies passed and the 1930s saw sweeping changes to the industry, both technically, statically and stylistically. A new revolution began in 1931 when India's first talkie Alam Ara, directed by Ardeshir Irani, was released. It marked the beginning of talkie era in film industry in southern India also.

Irani introduced the Indian cinema in a completely new way. As time passed, the industry prospered with the help and contribution of film personalities like Debaki Bose, Chetan Anand, SS Bose and Nitin Anand.

Today, we are celebrating 100 glorious years of Indian film industry and by now, various stars graced the silver screen with their flawless acting skills.

From Prithviraj Kapoor to Amitabh Bachchan, Nargis to Rekha, then Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and now the new generation of stars including Ranbir Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, and many others. Certainly, every star has helped the Indian cinema grow.

The Journey

Indian film industry is the largest and oldest in the world as over 1,000 films are made every year in different languages. The industry witnessed many actors who not only entertained people but took the never ending journey to the next level.

In early era, audiences were enthralled by the histrionics of actors such as Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Sanjeev Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Waheeda Rehman, Asha Parekh, Sharmila Tagore, Rekha, Jaya Bhaduri etc. These stars took industry by storm and their styles are often mimicked by many actors of the current generation.

The industry moved a step ahead and the 90's saw the emergence of stars like Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Madhuri Dixit, Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Kajol. They captivated the audiences with their power-packed performances.

This was an era of mixed genre of romantic, thrillers, action and comedy films. Indian cinema finally found global mass appeal at the turn of the 21st century. As the world became a global village, the industry reached out further to international audiences.

Now the new generation's stars like Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Pareeniti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, Imran Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, began to explore ways to use new techniques to enrich Indian cinema with their performances.

Stage set for the celebration in Goa

The stage is set for the ten-day 43rd International Film Festival of India (Iffi) The Iffi 2012 will heavily focus on celebrating the 100 years of Indian cinema. An entertainment programme for the inaugural day, on the evening of November 20 has been choreographed, based on this theme.
