Bollywood Movie Sholay Immortalised in 3D

sholayAlthough every single declaration for cinema there is nothing short of a Lothario expressing crushing love for his beloved, this one quotation by Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky resonated last Saturday afternoon when I attended a session of Cinema 100, a 3-day event to commemorate India cinema centenary at Subhash Ghai’s Whistling Woods International.

Tarkovsky says, ‘Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.’

I cannot explain the sense of awe and admiration I experience strolling through this ‘sculpting’ in a lingering corridor of posters, prints, facts and legends revealing carefully collected motifs of Hindi cinema’s history.
