On Dev Anand’s 100th birth commemoration, glancing back at the tradition of Navketan Movies and how the Anand siblings were the ‘other first group’ of Bollywood that established the groundwork for Hindi film as far as we might be concerned today.

The popular triplet of Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand were known as the trailblazers of Hindi film when they began working in the motion pictures in 1940s. Raj Kapoor began RK Movies in 1948 at 24 years old, and after 75 years, his grandchildren are as yet keeping his heritage alive, despite the fact that the organization doesn’t exist any longer. The Kapoor family is broadly known as the ‘principal group of Bollywood’ yet that is not by any means the only family that made Hindi film what it is. There was another ‘first family’ – the Anands – where three siblings got together and provided Hindi film with a dash of class, and clutched their perspective, which was viewed as very present day for those days. This ‘other first family’ began Navketan Movies in 1949 with Afsar and in the numerous years that they kept on making motion pictures, Navketan made 39 movies.

Chetan Anand, Dev Anand and Vijay Anand were the mainstays of Navketan Movies however the organization was begun by the more established kin – Chetan and Dev. Chetan, who was an educator at Doon School and had a common way to deal with motion pictures, had proactively made the 1946 film Neecha Nagar by then, at that point. Despite the fact that the film won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Celebration, and is as yet the main Indian film to win that honor, it never saw the illumination of the day back home. That very year, Dev additionally made his presentation in the films with Murmur Ek Hain as it was as yet accepted that Segment was impossible. However we currently realize that in a year’s time, India was separated into two, the majority around then kept on accepting that isolating individuals based on religion was nowhere near functional. Murmur Ek Hain investigated this thought and tracked down its crowd.
