It has been a century since Bollywood has started producing movies. Ever since 1913, Indian cinema has played a major role in the cinematographic industry of the world. From the invention of “talkies” to the worldwide success of Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots, Indian movies have come a long way!

The very first production to come out of Bollywood was Raja Harishchandra. This story which focused on a king who ruled in mythological times consisted of a full male crew as a woman appearing in films was a taboo in 1913 India. This landmark of Indian cinema is only the first of many masterpieces to have come out of this multi-billion industry.

It took 18 years for Indian cinema to release its first film which has sound and in which the actors can be heard talking (films of the sort are colloquially known as “talkies”). Bollywood’s first talkie was Alam Ara, which can be translated as Light of the World. It was released in 1931 and its last existing copy was lost in a fire which occurred in 2003. It has therefore been entirely lost.


3 Idiots

Other landmark movies of Indian cinema are Mother India released in 1957, Mughal-e-Azam (The Greatest of the Mughals) released in 1960, Sholay (Embers) released in 1975, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (The Braveheart will get the Bride) released in 1995 and 2009’s 3 Idiots. The latter film has received worldwide critical acclaim and is Bollywood’s highest grossing production. Actor Aamir Khan features in this movie.

After a century of production, Bollywood is as strong as ever. Being recognised as one of the world’s leading cinema industries and as the patron saint of commercial Indian cinema, this cinematic agency is the largest film producer in India.
