Starting from 1910, when the first English movie was released. Hollywood and Bollywood have made their own stepping stones to be known worldwide now. The world has progressed with new creativity, cinematography and scripts but one thing that intrigues me about the past is how all the stories were based on facts and lives. The film lovers still continue to wish for more, but all lingual movies stay deep inside the person belonging to the language.
