So, what was the first dream sequence in Hindi films? Most people will tell you it is the one in Awara (1951). In fact, it is hard to know because we do not have all the talkies to watch. But, what about the ones we have. has anybody watched them carefully? Well, I have and I found two examples before 1951. And, lest you say that the Awara dream sequence has a song, my examples also have songs. One is song number 2 from Bawre Nain (1950). The other is from 1941 Padosi! If you have the film, watch it, it is after song 10, uTh meree pyaaree.
Now you know!
