Ancient cinema The origin of Indian cinema
is closely related to ancient rituals andseasonal festivities of the country.
The traditional account in Bharataʹs NatyaShastra gives a divine origin to Indian cinema, attributing it to the Natyaveda,the holy book of dramaturgy created by Lord Brahma.
The history of ancient Indian cinema dates back to the Vedic age. cinema in its rudiment form in ancient India was very popular with the Vedic people. It is believed that the theatrical culture in India originated in the times of Rig Veda.
Cinema in ancient India of course played a major role in the over all enrichment of Indian tradition, culture, artistry and creativity
Modern Cinema The modern Indian theatre started to grow more in the 1850s as the
theatre enthusiasts started to perform their own play on different languages which were based on western style.
It passed to Bombay and to many North as well as in South Indian states. These new form of the Indian theatre started to grow at the cost of extinction of other traditional form of theatre.
Modern Indian cinema developed due to the change in the socio political set up in India. Theatre before the independence of India was primarily a weapon to protest against the "British Raj".
However it is certainly not an overstatement to say that the two hundred years of British colonialism brought the Indian theatre into a direct contact with the western theatre.
The harmonious blend of eastern and western culture gave birth to a rather modern form of Indian cinema.
Realistic approach and naturalistic presentation marked the change in the thematic development of Indian cinema.
