Festival "RETRO BOLLYWOOD"
Festival of Indian Culture and Cinema dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Indian Cinema
In the industry of Bollywood, 6 million people are involved, and this is every two hundredth resident of the country. 1000 paintings are produced annually, almost three times as many as in Hollywood. High-quality music is an indispensable component of the success of this movie, and movie soundtracks are released earlier than pictures. Here, every beautiful girl, especially if she is a model, sooner or later becomes an actress.
This is another dimension of our world. There are game tapes recognized by the world community, and masterpieces such as Slumdog Millionaire and My Name is Khan, and low-grade action movies produced in hundreds and thousands for strata of hard working life. In them, heroes from the common people oppose the greed and dishonesty of the rich, thereby giving hope to the viewer, making his life easier for at least two or three hours of screen time.
Indian cinema began in
And the tape "Zita and the Gita", released in 1972, has become truly public domain. Their names remained in the collective memory - Zita and Gita, two beautiful sisters with a difficult fate. It is noteworthy that the two ligrits bred at the Novosibirsk Zoo - cubs from crossing a lion and a tiger - were called that way. Meanwhile, for the first time in this romantic film, the main role (even two) was played by a woman - actress Hema Malini. From it began a whole galaxy of Indian stars - breathtaking hair-beauties. Today these names are known all over the world: Lily Naidu, Rekha, Aishwarya Rai, Lara Datta, Priyanka Chopra, Shruti Sharma, Sayali Bhagat ...
So why is the "Bollywood standard" so irresistibly attractive to the viewer? By the purity of the first love of charming heroes, their courageous and honest behavior, stunning soundtracks, graceful dance scenes, exotic landscapes, the naive charm of the plot or exciting scenes of chases and pursuits? Each viewer answers this question himself.
The truth is that all Bollywood tapes are full of life and subtly play on the strings of the human soul: excite feelings, making us cry and laugh, warmly empathize with the heroes and sincerely rejoice with them. Each film offers us a field for internal work, training of emotional muscles - and this contains both the wisdom of the ancient country and its children's simplicity.
