120 incredible stories from our 21 partners

Our 21 partners curated over 120+ immersive stories about Hindi cinema to share with the world. One that really stood out to me: 45 years ago, half a million farmers in India joined hands and decided to contribute two rupees each to crowdfund a movie titled “Manthan”. Inspired by the ongoing White Revolution, India’s dairy development program at the time, this film stands as a symbol of the power of collective determination. “Manthan” went on to win the prestigious 1977 National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi, showcasing the ability of cinema to not only entertain but also to inspire, educate, and provoke change.

Spotlights on icons and stars

This retrospective offers you a glimpse into the world of legends like Raj Kapoor, Nargis (the icon of Mother India), Nutan and countless others who have become household names not just in India, but across the globe. I invite you to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of V. Shantaram to learn about the techniques that made him a true pioneer of Hindi cinema.
