It’s been 1 week movie called Bombay Talkies released last Friday to celebrate 100 years of Indian Cinema.
The very first film was a silent movie, Raja Harishchandra made by Dada Saheb Phalke was released 100 years ago in 1913.
After 17 years a sound film, Alam Ara by Ardeshir Irani was released. Same way Indian Cinema kept on progressing and 1 week back it completed 100 years.
Bombay Talkies is a film dedicated in celebration of 100 years of Cinema is directed by four leading directors; Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap and Dibaker Banerjee. The film was in limelight for being a tribute to 100 years of Indian Cinema and various controversies but it failed to attract audiences very much in its first week. Film is unlikely to recover its money spent on its making, print and advertising (BT). Film has got average critic rating 3/5.
Bombay talkies is consisting four short stories depicting the degree to which bollywood gets infused in our lives. This movie shows how significant a bollywood movie, a song or a star can be in some people’s lives, the magic of Cinema.
Whole bollywood cinema can’t be defined in one film or by four stories but it can be said a good attempt by four great directors.
Ajeeb Dastan hai yeh- by Karan Johar
Sheila ki Jawani- Zoya Akhtar
The film ends with a celebration song containing huge number of celebrities (though missing many but a song having all stars together is difficult too) defining the magic of cinema. The song is not so evergreen but still enjoyable.
