After a successful century in existence, on May 3rd 2013 the Indian film industry celebrates its 100th anniversary. To mark the landmark occasion, Sanona™ has launched a vote to find the public’s most favourite Indian movie.
Sanona, the UK’s largest online Pay Per View (PPV) Indian movie streaming service, is asking movie lovers to choose their most loved feature film from a selection of ten all-time greats which include classics such as Mughal-e-Azam and Awaara to modern day hits like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and 3 Idiots.
India’s cinema industry was born in 1913 from Dadasaheb Phalke’s efforts to make Raja Harishchandra, the nation’s first feature-length black and white silent film. One hundred years on, Hindi language musicals, fondly known as Bollywood, have asserted their dominance and become a billion dollar business, garnering popularity across the globe.
From the golden era of the 50s and 60s, to the action-packed 70s, masala 80s, NRI focussed 90s and the big budget blockbusters of the 00s, millions of magical moments have been projected onto the silver screen. With hundreds of love stories, thrillers, dramas, comedies and action adventures releasing each year, where does one even begin to judge the best?
