Google Doodle thus remembered the father of Indian cinema


Google recalled filmmaker Dadasaheb Phalke on Monday through a scribble in his familiar style. Dadasaheb Phalke is known as the “father of Indian cinema”. Dadasaheb Phalke was born on April 30, 1870 in the city of Nashik, Maharashtra. His real name was Dhundiraj Govind Phalke. His father Shastri Phalke was a Sanskrit scholar and his family moved from Nashik to Mumbai in search of a glorious life. From childhood, he had a tendency towards art and in 1855 he joined ‘JJ College of Arts’. Today Google remembers the contributions of such a skilled filmmaker and the oldest guide to Bharti Cinema. Dadasaheb Phalke, represented by Google Doodle, also worked as a painter in the theater company and a photographer in the antiques department. But when he didn’t mind all this, he decided to become a filmmaker with passion and went to London with money from a friend.
It is the 148th anniversary of the birth of Dadasaheb Phalke on Monday. Dadasaheb was a well-known producer, director, and screenwriter. Dada made 95 films and 27 short films in his 19-year career. Dada Saheb Phalke laid the foundations in the world of cinema with ‘Raja Harishchandra’, which is said to be India’s first feature film. In addition to this, he starred in memorable films such as ‘Mohini Bhasmasura’, ‘Satyavan Savitri’ and ‘Kalia Mardan’.
After spending two weeks in London, he returned to Mumbai after learning the movie. Here today the Google Doodle stars founded Phalke Film Company and decided to make a movie called ‘Raja Harishchandra’ under their banner. At first he did not get a financier for the film, then Dadasaheb wanted the main character in his film to play a woman, but no one agreed, because at that time, women’s work was not considered good. Finally, on May 3, 1913, the first film made by an Indian filmmaker ‘Raja Harishchandra’ was screened at the Mumbai Coronation Cinema. The 40-minute movie proved to be a box office hit.
Speaking of Google Doodle, the ‘Dadasaheb Phalke’ doodle has been prepared by artist Alisha Nandra. Google Doodle presented Dadasaheb Phalke with a roll of film. It is written that he directed the most memorable films in the history of Indian cinema. The Google blog post further mentioned: “After trying his luck as a painter, draftsman, set designer, he had a chance in Alice Guy’s silent film” The Life of Christ. “If seen, credit for showing Indian culture on the big screen is for Dadasaheb Phalke Saheb.
