Cinema and Literature are two distinct but equally extraordinary works of art. Where literature was a popular form of expression during the 18th and 19th century, cinema has taken its place by the 20th century onwards. Literature has been a way of artistic expression for centuries now. Writers have told tales about gods and goddesses, heroes and their valiant victories, historical epics, romantic tragedies, comic incidents, legendary episodes, and much more.

Introduction Titles sequence that are usually known as opening credit sequence are included in the titles category, which are written matter inserted into a film for introductory or explanatory to their title, cast member, key production or both. Credit titles were often introduced well after the beginning of the film to allow the plot and the action to seize the attention of the viewer in a segment known as a teaser. For the earliest movies, the opening credit sequence was meant to display the names of the film and the filmmaker. The purpose was to communicate this information efficiently. As legal obligations started to become an issue, the opening credit sequence evolved to give credit to not just the filmmaker, but also the actors and the rest of the crew. By doing so, the film builds upon traditional conventions of moviemaking while developing its own style and motifs that are remarkably distinctive. The setting of Inception is idiosyncratic for it divides each section of its dream world into distinct sceneries to help the audience differentiate location and tone.
