The golden era of Hindi Cinema - which “painted” its screen with the best of poetry and music. An era when life was simple and simple means were needed for a happy life. There was contentment in small things and life was a melody. Our cinema then reflected those times. “Black and White” travels through life of cinema from 1945 to 1968.

The journey visits landmarks like K.L Saigal, Bimal Roy, V. Shantaram, and Guru Dutt. En route, we meet the stylish Dev Anand, tragedy king Dilip Kumar, showman Raj Kapoor, the beautiful Madhubala, the classy Meena Kumari, and “Yahoo” Shammi
Kapoor, to name a few.

“Black and White” is a collage of performance on screen and stage. Aided by mega screen audio-visuals, the performers on stage blend with the celluloid, making music come alive on stage. The presentation format is reminiscent of a stage musical where the singers “act” the characters. The performance touches the finer aspects of the era through the medium of music, pictures, movie clips, anecdotes and trivia.

“Black and White” is an attempt to give a third dimension to the celluloid screen, restore links with our past, get nostalgic and go back to our roots, to those moments which we all want to relive.

Till date in less than 2 years 115 shows have been performed including 14 in UK  and several in US. All the shows have been a tremendous success.
