Journey of Indian Cinema
Our theme 'Journey of Indian Cinema' has been designed
to cover all the aspects of film making in India as well as
showcase the glamour, fashion and the heritage of modern
India. The exhibition consists of Panels from golden era to
medieval era and the contemporary era showing the
transformation over the years in the field of acting, sets,
themes, costumes and technology .
To make it more visual, we even decided to have life
figurine shapes of some of the famous names from the
industry, which are placed strategically across the
exhibition hall for the visitors to get themselves
photographed with their favorite stars. This was one of
most attractive corners of the exhibition hall. Mannequins
with famous movie dresses adorned with jewelry were
placed as a special attraction.
The highlight of the exhibition was live performance of
melodious hindi songs which were performed though out
the exhibition which attracted the visitors at large.
An audio visual especially prepared for this exhibition
having interviews with bollywood stars, directors, music
composers, set designers, choreographers etc. was shown
during the exhibition.
