The Hindi film industry, also known as Bollywood is extremely popular today, and has even surpassed Hollywood, hitherto considered to be the largest in the world. It was in 1913 that India produced its first Raja Harishchandra, but it was only after independence that our Hindi film industry started growing by leaps and bounds. Since then, Bollywood films have carved a niche for themselves in the international film world, and our producers and directors have brought out one after the other popular and outstanding films. Over the years many Hindi films have received international recognition and appreciation. In this book the author has selected 30 films which are considered to be outstanding and distinctive, and have won accolades both nationally and internationally.
