Even though the men who invented the movie camera and the first films didn't believe it had any commercial future, they sent a Frenchman to Australia--via Bombay--to show their new magical toy. By the time the Frenchman left--several weeks later--India was changed for ever.
In this episode we look at how and when movies first were exhibited in India and introduce you to some of the early adopters who played a pivotal role in establishing cinema in South Asia.
