Director Vikram Bhatt's previous films Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage, Deewane Huye Paagal and Life Mein Kabhie Kabhiee were termed as box-office failures in the media. Speaking in corroboration, Bhatt felt the need for introspection for making inconsequential cinema. His want to make a horror film stemmed from the visuals of a chariot riding through the mist that constantly played in his mind. Claiming it to be his most ambitious project to date, Bhatt took a year and a half to complete the script
A coffee-table book, with trivia and in-depth detail about the film, was launched prior to the film's release. Bhatt thought that the audience will find it better to read about the film before its release. The film was released on 12 September 2008.
The film gained mixed reviews from critics. Nikhat Kazmi of The Times of India commented that Adah Sharma "delivers a consummate performance". Ashok Nayak from nowrunning.com wrote: "1920 doesn't manage to hold your attention throughout. It's scary in parts and funny at times. Don't expect much at the box-office".

The 1920s in Western fashion saw a modernization. For women, fashion had continued to change away from the extravagant and restrictive styles of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, and towards looser clothing which revealed more of the arms and legs, that had begun at least a decade prior with the rising of hemlines to the ankle and the movement from the S-bend corset to the columnar silhouette of the 1910s. Men also began to wear less formal daily attire and athletic clothing or 'Sportswear' b
After World War I, the United States entered a prosperous era and, as a result of its role in the war, came out onto the world stage. Social customs and morals were relaxed in the optimism brought on by the end of the war and the booming of the stock market. Women were entering the workforce in record numbers. In the United States, there was the enactment of the 18th Amendment, or as many know it, Prohibition, in 1920. Prohibition stated that it would be illegal to sell and consume alcohol. This
Paris set the fashion trends for Europe and North America. The fashion for women was all about letting loose. Women wore dresses all day, everyday. Day dresses had a drop waist, which was a belt around the low waist or hip and a skirt that hung anywhere from the ankle on up to the knee, never above. Daywear had sleeves and a skirt that was straight, pleated, hank hem, or tiered. Hair was often bobbed, giving a boyish look. Clothing fashions changed with women's changing roles in society, particu
In menswear, there were two distinct periods in the 1920s. Throughout the decade, men wore short suit jackets, the old long jackets being used merely for formal occasions. In the early 1920s, men's fashion was characterized by extremely high-waisted jackets, often worn with belts. Lapels on suit jackets were not very wide as they tended to be buttoned up high. This style of jacket seems to have been greatly influenced by the uniforms worn by the military during the First World War. Trousers were
During the 1920s, the notion of keeping up with fashion trends and expressing oneself through material goods seized middle-class Americans as never before. Purchasing new clothes, new appliances, new automobiles, new anything indicated one's level of prosperity. Being considered old-fashioned, out-of-date, or—worse yet—unable to afford stylish new products was a fate many Americans went to great lengths to avoid. For women, face, figure, coiffure, posture, and grooming had become ...
For working class women in the 1920s, tailored suits with a straight, curve less cut were popular. Throughout the decade, the lengths of skirts were rise to the knee and then to the ankle various times affecting the skirt style of tailored suits. Rayon, an artificial silk fabric, was most common for working-class women clothing.
The 1920 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the VII Olympiad, were an international multi-sport event in 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium. In March 1912, during the 13th session of the IOC, Belgium's bid to host the 1920 Summer Olympics was made by Baron Édouard de Laveleye, president of the Belgian Olympic Committee and of the Royal Belgian Football Association. No fixed host city was proposed at the time. The 1916 Summer Olympics, to be held in Berlin, capital of the German Empire ...
The Battle of Warsaw, also known as the Miracle of the Vistula, was a series of battles that resulted in a decisive Polish victory in 1920 during the Polish–Soviet War. Poland, on the verge of total defeat, repulsed and defeated the Red Army in what Vladimir Lenin, the Bolshevik leader, called "an enormous defeat" for his forces. After the Polish Kiev Offensive, Soviet forces launched a successful counterattack in summer 1920, forcing the Polish army to retreat westward in disarray. The ...
Initially, the 1920+ project was based on and inspired by the Polish-Bolshevik Warof 1920 (February 1919 - March 1921). This war, and the Battle of Warsaw, is considered by many historians to be one of the most important in the history of the world. It altered the course of European history and halted the Red Revolution and the Bolsheviks' march to the West. It took great effort and sacrifice, but Poland managed to achieve it in just two years after regaining independence. Interestingly, few people in the West know about these events, except for history buffs. It was also the last war(turns out not because the Italians also used them in WW2) in history where cavalry was used on such a large scale and played a key role on the battlefield. From there, Jakub started adding more themes, parties to the conflict, and heroes to shape the history of the world of 1920+.
In the Industrial Revolution era, humanity is fascinated by new technologies like steel and engines, and the industry is developing on an unprecedented scale. Experiments and attempts to build a steel walking machine begin. Of course, all this is driven by the governments, generals, and the powerful arms industry. As the arms race commences, conflict on a massive scale seems to be just a matter of time. Walking Automachines of various sizes and shapes start to intrude on everyday life and dominate the battlefields. Like Europe and the world at the beginning of the 20th century, the World of 1920+ is full of contrasts, diversity, mystery, and unexplored places. In this world, the traditional way of life in harmony with the environment is gradually displaced by technology, powerful machinery, and heavy industry. Countryside landscape plays an important role in making the world of 1920+ feel unique. The world is seen mainly from the perspective of countryside and rural life. People are...
The World of 1920+ has given rise to products outside of the artwork originally created by Jakub. This includes the board game Scythe as well as the video game Iron Harvest.
