Films and Arts flipping the pages of the history

Ankita Sahu

Abstract

The paper focuses on 11 historical films from 1950 till 2018 adapted from the real incidents that took place in the Indian history and it also explores the reason for the rise and fall, marketing strategies, the budget, awards, critic reviews, audiences reactions both in India and overseas etc of the films. Not all movies hold out the expectations of the audiences and the film critics, but as per the survey goes, most of the historical stories that are adapted to movies, are loved and appreciated by the audience and are declared to be the blockbusters. The sudden rise in curiosity to know about the past has built an opportunity for the cine world to explore on historical stories and presenting these stories in a grand style, adding their flavours of imagination. This has led a great interest among the producers to invest large sums with a confidence of a grand return.
