45th IFFI is celebrating the art-form of dance in Indian films under separate section Celebrating Dance in Indian Cinema which opens today with the screening of Tamil movie ‘Sringaram’. The film won the National Award for best choreography for the livelydepiction of a hill song against a mountain backdrop.

Indian films have always utilized the mediums of musicand dance as essential core of cinematic culture. Starting from theclassics like Alibaba and Kalpana, the special section presents films which brought both Indianclassical dance and Western dance to the audiences. Choreographers like Sadhona Bose and UdayShankar, to classicists like Gopi Krishna and BirjuMaharaj to modern artists like ShiamakDavarand Vaibhavi Merchant are all part of this exclusive section.

This section of 45th IFFI attempts to highlight different dance traditions and styles ranging from the moreclassical forms like Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi (ThillaanaaMohanambal, HamsaGeete,SagarSangamam, Sringaram), Kathakali (Vanaprastham), and Kathak (JhanakJhanakPayalBaje, UmraoJaan, "KaheChedMohe" from Devdas) to more contemporary hybridforms influenced by modern western forms like jazz, ballet, Hawaiian dance, and acrobaticforms (Alibaba, Albela, Dil to PagalHai, Rab ne Bana di Jodi) among others.

The section also pays tribute to dancers of Indiancinemas - Sadhana Bose, Uday Shankar, Padmini, Sandhya, Vyjayanthimala, HemaMalini, Shobhana, Madhuri Dixit, SudhaChandran and Kamal Haasan among others. It also includes mainstream film like Dhoom 3 that is not a dance film in theconventional sense, but is one that demonstrates powerfully the central place of dance inIndian cinemas.
