Indiancine.ma is an annotated online archive of Indian film. It is intended to serve as a shared resource for film scholars and enthusiasts in India and beyond.
Since 1931 to date, India has made around 50,000 sound films. Official figures suggest that around 4.4% of all films made exist in archival conditions. On the other hand, it is likely that low-end sector, including 16 mm, VHS, VCD and DVD, might have 15,000 sound films, i.e. 30%, across the Indian cinema’s history, and across regions.
