100 Years of Indian Cinema to Be Celebrated

A representation by the ministry of information and broadcasting throughout the Jan 26 Republic Day parade will represent the journey of the Indian film industry over 100 years, ministry secretary Uday Kumar Verma told here Friday.

"We have lots of plans to make merry the achievement of 100 years of Indian cinema. The Republic Day montage is one of them, where we will portray a depiction of the well known film that the industry has observed in the last year," Verma told reporters here Friday. Verma also plead to the people to sight the YouTube channel of the ministry and the details that has been given on centenary year celebrations of the industry.

"The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting's montage on Republic Day looks for showing how the strips of celluloid have tied together a nation's aspirations and dreams, as obvious in the vision of its filmmakers for 100 years," said Verma quoting the YouTube channel.

The essential idea of the montage is the "re-interpretation of the prototypical Indian pattern of the mythological flying bird boat, the Mayur Pankhi".

As per the YouTube video, which has a narration by much-admired actor Irrfan, the tableau carries an illustration of veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar, and has names of iconic films like 'Mother India' and 'Sholay' adorned on it.

Verma told that I&B ministry are also progressing out a series of occasions across the country to score 100 years of the Indian film industry.

All through the year-long festivity, 100 classics that formed not just the industry but also reflected the changing society will be broadcast across India. "Film festivals throughout the country and are being apprehended by the Directorate of Film Festivals (DFF) and National Film Archives of India (NFAI) as a division of the celebrations," he said.

The films will be displayed at state capitals and will portray the 100 films with a display of posters and photos. A national students' film carnival will be equally prearranged by the Film and Television Institute of India in Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute in Kolkata.
