Biography of a film studio

 

I am an abandoned film studio.

Once upon a time I was well-known and full of activities. Directors on high chairs once shouted through their megaphone — Silence, Camera, Rolling and Action!

Today as Indian film industry is celebrating its 100th anniversary, I, which was once the launching pad for many superstars and legends is thirsting for a little recognition and remembrance.

No one comes here; in fact nobody even remembers that I was a studio that once upon a time was a major part of this industry.

Today I am nothing but the ruins of my glorious past.

 

Heritage Studios of Mumbai Some of the biggest studios of the 1920s and 1930s now lie in ruins.)

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. This post reminded me of the freshness we still feel while watching the old movies. Even though there is a technical advantage for the current generation movies, they really do lack that freshness. NIcely written post for a prompt. Have a nice weekend. God bless.🙂

  2. Dear Indira,

    Beautifully written and poignant. A building’s POV doesn’t always work for me, but in this case it works quite well.

    Shalom,

    • Thanks Rochelle, your encouraging comments mean so much to me. I was worried that it will work or not. Shalom.

  4. Bittersweet take on the prompt—and I mean that in a good way. If buildings could talk, I’m sure these would be but one of the many stories they could tell. Nice work!

  8. Your story is one answer to the question/thought of “If buildings could talk…” This worked well.
