Indian Film Industry - Some facts

Indian film industry has come a long way since 1930s. The first talkie made in India was Alam Ara produced as a musical by the Imperial Film Company in 1931. The first theatre in South India owned by an India was Gaiety in 1914. Mr. R. Nataraja Mudaliar made the first silent feature film "Keechaka Vadham (Slaying of Keechaka)" in South India as early as 1917 followed by Lavakusa(1919), Rukmini satyabama(1920) and Markandeya (1922).

The UK Film council conducted a survey in 2002 on the state of the Indian Film Industry, titled The Indian Media and Entertainment Industry.
