History of VFX in Indian Films

The History of VFX in Indian Films dates back to the silent era. At the same time as hollywood films were experimenting and executing VFX, India had also closely followed and caught on. Dada Saheb Phalke's silent movie Kaliamardhan in the year 1919 is one such example with amazing work. Later came movies like Paadhala Bhairavi and Maya Bazaar which took VFX to greater heights. With the advent of Computer Graphics in hollywood in the 1970s Indian films yearned to similar work and in the 1980s India's first Computer graphics facilities came up led by Prasad Video Digital which later gave birth to Prasad EFX who imported the first film scanners and recorders to India and thus pioneered the digital image revolution in India. The recent film "Krrish" had hollywood vfx supervisor Craig Mumma and was completely executed in India by Prasad EFX.

    If you tie a horse to a stake, do you expect he will grow fat? If you pen an Indian up on a small spot of earth, and compel him to stay there, he will not be contented, nor will he grow and prosper. I have asked some of the great white chiefs where they get their authority to say to the Indian that he shall stay in one place, while he sees white men going where they please. They can not tell me.
    Chief Joseph (c. 1840–1904)

    We have need of history in its entirety, not to fall back into it, but to see if we can escape from it.
    José Ortega Y Gasset (1883–1955)
