So let us start with the introduction to the Travel Opus to Bollywood, which is a video called a Successful landing in Mumbai (the home of Bollywood). Video, images and music by Indivue.

History of Indian cinema in short

Hindi cinema is known by the name of Bollywood, because they combined the names of Hollywood and Bombay. Other theories have also been made about the birth of this concept. (Nowadays Bombay is known as Mumbai, and the commercial capital of India.)

Find more articles about Mumbai in English here and Mumbai in Finnish here.

India itself is a huge country where they speak several languages. India has over 20 official languages and Indian movies are produced with over 30 different languages. The biggest and most important languages are Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Oriya, Malayalam and Bhojpuri.

Movie itself came to India in 7th of July 1896.

The first Indian document was a wrestling match in Mumbai, Hanging Garden, in 1897.

Bollywood itself is over one hundred years old concept. The first Indian silent film Raja Harishchandra was published in 1913, like it was  mentioned in 21st of June 2012.

Alam Ara in 1931 was the first Indian movie with a sound, and a year later came the first movie with a background music. The movie was called Chandidas.

The first Indian movie in the Venice Film Festival was seen in 1934. It was called Seeta and it got also the first international reward.

Famous Indian movie awards are National Film Awards, Filmfare Awards, Stardust Awards, Star screen Awards, Bollywood Movie Awards and Zee Cine Awards.

The first Indian movie with singing was Bhagya Shakra in 1935.

The first commercially successful movie in India was Chandra Lekha in 1948.

In 2016 Indivue wrote in Finnish an article about

The Best of Bollywood movies in 2000-2016

The five star movies were these:

  • Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2015 *****

  • Goliyon ki Raasleela Ram-Leela 2013 *****
  • PK 2014 *****

The music samples attached here tell you some essential names behind the music in Hindi movies, like Lata Mangehskar, Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Lucky Ali, Shreya Goshal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.

It is worth mentioning that all the Indian movies reviewed in INDIVUE have been seen through Western eyeglasses. That way much of the movie experience is based on translation and English subtitles made by somebody else. This might also explain why some masterpiece in Hindi cinema does not ring the bell of the Finnish viewer. And it goes vice versa as well, of course.

It might interesting for an Indian to see, what do Western people like in Bollywood. So here you go –

The first Bollywood movie I saw in an Indian movie theatre was called Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, and that was in Mumbai back in 2006, in Regal Cinema. Find the article about that movie and Regal Cinema here. Those were the poor days for bloggers, when computers were withering slow and internet connections between Europe and India even more slower.

Some ten years later I got to see another movie in an Indian movie theatre, and that was Shamitabh, a movie partially shot in Finland.

But dvds and blurays have always been my favourites because those movies had English subtitles in them. Very essential. Luckily nowadays it is easy to see Bollywood movies with English subtitles also through Apple and iTunes.
