The amazing growth of the technology has led to the remarkable adaptability and fidelity, but at the same
time the present-day cinema has also attained some serious changes that are thwarting the “Beautiful”
ancient craft (Valéry1964). The alarming sound which warned the death of cinema was acknowledged and
heard by many critics, theorists and filmmakers and they could predict that the end of cinema is near
or has almost arrived. The ‘cinema’ here is inclusive of its various forms such as silent cinema, the
cinema of montage and expressionistic mise-en-scene which was considered to be the foundation of the
images (Simpsonet al. 2004). The modern day technologies which constitute the advancements in sounds,
widescreens, 3D and colors are considered to be threats to the chastity of the ancient art of cinema
(Arnheim1957). The pure form of cinema was the one which was silent, black and white and was mostly
square and the insertion of sound to the action was considered to be ‘quite ruinous’and it was conclusively
said that ‘the screen or cinema has lost more than it has gained’. The grief was expressed as the developments
in the cinema have though conquered the world of voices, yet, it has lost the world of dreams (Weiset al. 1985).
The development of media has two-fold aspect, on one hand it has jeopardized cinema to destroy itself
through intrinsic technological progress, and on the other hand, it has become the potential sufferer
of other forms of media.
