Jubilee TV Series Review: A beautiful throwback to the wonderful ages of bollywood

Jubilee, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, has been described as a love letter to Bollywood's golden age. The 10-part Prime Video series takes us back to 1947 and the extraordinary people who made that time period what it is today.

1947 remains a turning point in Indian history. The short-lived ecstasy of Independence was swiftly followed by the unimaginable horrors of Partition on the eve of August 15, even as the nation woke up to hard-won "life and freedom" (to borrow words from Jawaharlal Nehru's celebrated speech) after nearly a century of British rule. Every which way, 1947 fills in as a mixed sign of opportunities procured and lives lost. One would have thought that nobody would have been interested in what was going on in Hindi cinema at that time, given the political climate at the time. Strangely, 1947 was a year with a lot of drama for Bollywood.

The Jubilee series talks about the studiozation of the bollywood where new studios crept up. Also it shows stories about how some of the new stars in the industry rose to stardom and how some fell down the ladder. Overall, Jubilee talks about how the bollywood industry had its glorious moments and shows the golden age of the industry in all its glory.
