The Father of Indian Cinema: Dadasaheb Phalke’s Early Life
Father of Indian Cinema, was born in Trimbak, Maharashtra. Dhundiraj Govinda Phalke’s real name is Dhundiraj Phalke. He is known as the ‘Father of Indian Cinema’ due to the fact that he shot the first ever full-length Indian film in 1913 titled ‘Raja Harishchandra’.
From an early age, Phalke had a keen interest in the arts. In 1885, he enrolled at the Sir JJ School Of Art, Mumbai (now Mumbai) with the aim of pursuing his artistic aspirations. There, he studied amateur drama, photography and lithography, architecture, and magic. During his brief career, he worked as a painter, set designer for a theater, and a photographer.
Ravi Varma’s paintings of Hindu gods left a lasting impression on Phalke while he worked at his lithographic press. This influence can be seen in his own depiction of various Gods and Goddesses in his mythological films.
One of the most important moments of Phalke’s life came when he accidentally watched the silent film ‘The Life of Christ’ (1910), which had a profound impact on Phalke, who made it his mission to bring all indian films to the big screen.

After traveling to London to study film with Cecil Hepworth, Phalke made his debut as a director in 1913 with the Indian film “Raja Harishchandra”, which was India’s first full-length film. What’s important about this film is that it was the first time a female actor was cast as the main character in Phalke’s 1913 film “Bhasmasur Mohini”.
In 1917, with the help of several partners, he established the Hindustan film company. He went on to direct 95 films and 27 short films in a career spanning 19 years.
With the introduction of sound in films and the expansion of the commercial side of the business, Phalke’s work lost popularity. His last silent film, ‘Setu Bandhan’, was released in 1932, after which he retired from film making and moved to Nashik. His last film, ‘Gangavataran’ (1937), was the only film in which he ever directed sound.
He died on 16 February 1944.
The central government honored the visionary in 1969 by establishing the ‘Dhankar Phalke Award’, a Lifetime Contribution to Indian Cinema.
