The Bombay Talkies

The Bombay Talkies was a movie studio founded in 1934 by Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani. It was one of the most influential and innovative film companies in India, producing 40 movies in Malad, a suburb of Mumbai. The studio introduced a high level of professionalism and technical standards to Indian cinema, employing experienced European technicians and launching the careers of many prominent actors and directors. The studio also tackled social issues and controversial topics in its films, such as caste discrimination, sexuality, and nationalism. The studio ceased operations in 1953, after the death of Devika Rani and the departure of some of its key personnel.



Himanshu Rai was a lawyer and actor who had worked in several silent films in India and Germany. He met Devika Rani, a niece of Rabindranath Tagore and a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, in London. They married in 1929 and decided to start their own film company in India. They returned to India in 1933 and founded Bombay Talkies with the help of Rajnarayan Dube, a wealthy financier who became the chief producer of the studio.

Bombay Talkies had a state-of-the-art studio complex in Malad, with sound and echo-proof stages, laboratories, editing rooms, and a preview theater. The studio also had a large staff of writers, directors, actors, technicians, musicians, and artists. The studio hired Franz Osten, a German director who had worked with Rai in Germany, as its chief director. Osten brought along several other European technicians who trained the Indian staff in the latest film techniques.

The first film produced by Bombay Talkies was Jawani Ki Hawa (1935), starring Rai and Rani. The film was a success and established the studio as a major force in Indian cinema. The studio followed up with several other hits, such as Achhut Kanya (1936), Jeevan Naiya (1936), Izzat (1937), Nirmala (1938), Kangan (1939), and Bandhan (1940). These films featured realistic stories, social themes, melodious songs, and naturalistic performances by the actors.
