Description

Back of the Book

Dadasaheb Phalke was obsessed with the idea of making the Indian cinema industry indigenous, when he was already past forty and poverty-stricken. Ultimately he translated into reality what seemed impossible. In order to produce movies with a specific ideal, he exerted himself, fought against adverse circumstances and put his family life one the line. Yet this disregarded the Father of Indian Cinema died in penury. The Government of India, however, appreciated his monumental work and instituted an award in his birth (1970) to be presented to an artist who makes an extensive and notable contribution to the world of Indian cinema. It is deemed to be the supreme honour in the world of cinema in India.

The biographer, Shri Bapu Watve, is a well-known writer on subjects relating to cinema, a public speaker and a studious researcher.

Shri S.A. Virkar is a prolific translator for Marathi to English.
