All you early google-rs who're marveling at the search giant's latest avatar; Google goes back to the date (1931) when the first Indian talkie – Alam Ara by Aredeshir Irani opened to its audiences.

Reminiscing the days gone by…

A small lesson in history for you all –  This movie became a cult hit mainly for being the first ever Indian movie to incorporate sound into it, as also, gained so much popularity that police had to be summoned to control the crowds at the theatres wherever it was showcased. This movie was also the first one to have a song in it. So, in it literal senses, it was India's first talking and singing movie

Celebrating this cult hit, this day, Google, has yet again doodled to perfection. What do you think?
