The movie starts with a quarrel with a paper-printing businessperson’s manager and Dadasaheb Phalke decisively left the job to choose an unemployed family father. The film has so much traits of most famous comedian actor Charli  Chaplin while Phalke and his boy accidently entered inside a picture palace and reading the menu before attempting to watch inside. He was amazed with a silent motion picture playing and he got to struck with the ideation of creating a film.

His success of the pioneer of the first motion picture in India was attribution of his incredible journey from India to London and strong support of his wife and two wonderful kids. The mother of the two kids in this film directed by Paresh Mokashi, carries a new baby during his journey to London. She played a modelling role of family leader.

The film depicts his deep nature of Indianans and non-aesthetic sense of India: he saw stone curved with different shapes and appearing in a fountain stone, he bowed in traditional manner and wiping his face with water.

A true adventure of  Palkhe and with burning desire to do something more about motion picture, made the attempt successful with lucks and charms. He learnt from one English gentle man about the motion picture.

His wife was surprised to see him keeping the newly born baby in his palm that she does not seem to have him returned. His new turn to make India’s first feature film, ‘Raja Harishchandra’ started by crucial role of the whole family.

He further stepped up by setting new casting place and recruiting crews to start the film. Most amazing scene in the movie was of the originality and natural built up act of every casts and crewmembers. The whole film shows the importance of strong will that every human being needs to have while unpredictable turns may come inward.

The comedic and realistic are the two important elements of the film. However, he came with teams to make money from the films.

The films ends up with a famous quote “’I must keep making films in India, so that it gets established as an industry at home” when he rejected his English friend’s proposal to make a film in London.

Note: In September 2009, it was selected as India’s official entry to Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film Category, making it the second film, after Shwaas (2004), in Marathi cinema to receive this honour
