100 years of bollywood

  1. 1. 100 years of Indian cinema A magic of celluloid………..
  2. 2. TIMELINE OF INDIAN CINEMA  This ppt marks the centennial of Indian cinema. From the monochrome pixels of Phalke’s Raja Harishchandra to the sleek montages of Bombay Talkies (a tribute to Indian cinema), celluloid in this country has had an eventful journey. Selecting memorable moments from these 100 years is akin to picking favourites from Sachin's 100 hundreds—it's a tough ask and quite a contentious task.
