Default In pics: Indian Cinema's First Times



Alam Ara
Since the inception of cinema it has gone through drastic changes with every new discovery we make. Today we celebrate the 80th anniversary of sound in films. Let's take a trip down memory lane and record every time Indian cinema created a new benchmark.

80 years ago, director Ardeshir Irani produced the first Indian movie with sound. He filmed past midnight to avoid unwanted sounds. Irani made the first Indian talkie Alam Ara and released it on March 14th 1931.
