The Golden Era of In­dian Cin­ema (1940s–1960s)

Set against the back­drop of a chang­ing In­dia, cin­ema was at the peak of its glam­our from the late 1940s to the early 1960s. These glory years saw films that in­voked pa­tri­o­tism and en­ter­tained with the aim to ed­u­cate; and big bud­get pro­duc­tions with grand sets, mag­nif­i­cent cos­tumes and mem­o­rable mu­sic, de­picted the princely era. De­bonair he­roes re­ceived star sta­tus, gor­geous lead­ing ladies be­came style icons and leg­endary pow­er­ful per­for­mances were de­liv­ered. The era saw some of In­dian cin­ema’s great­est on-screen ro­man­tic cou­ples who sang and danced to the most time­less melodies In­dia has ever known.
