Like the vintage wine, the Black and White films seem to be getting richer and precious with the passing years. They speak the language of human emotions, innocence and vulnerability. The buoyancy of deep nostalgia and melodious appeal still enthrall film buffs.

Black & White Movies have their own charm, something that even colour could never replace. That is the impact created by directors of those times. Who could forget Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat & Shree 420, Bimal Roy’s Do Bigha Zamin & Madhumati, Raj Khosla’s Ek Musafir Ek Haseena & Bombai Ka Babu, Nasir Hussain’s Dil Deke Dekho & many more.
