Cinestaan.com is an attempt to record and recount the rich past and vibrant present of Indian cinema.
India's film industry is among the oldest in the world, having been in existence since 1912. It is also the largest. And it has just as many interesting tales to tell — of derring-do, vision, even scandal — as any other film industry.
Over the past century, the passion for cinema has grown across the Indian subcontinent, slowly at first and rapidly after Independence, to become a force that binds together people from different backgrounds, even across borders.
