About Rangbhoomi

Dhundiraj Govind Phalke, popularly known as Dadasaheb Phalke (April 30, 1870 – February 16, 1944) was an Indian producer/ director/ screenwriter, widely regarded as the father of Indian Cinema. His debut film Raja Harishchandra was made in 1913 and is recognised as India’s first full-length feature film. In his career, spanning 19 years, he made 95 movies and 26 short films. His most noted works are Mohini Bhasmasur (1913), Satyavan Savitri (1914), Lanka Dahan (1917), Shri Krishna Janma (1918) and Kaliya Mardan (1919).

In 1920, after disputes with his partners, he resigned from his company Hindustan Films and shifted to the holy city of Benaras and renounced the world of cinema. At Benaras he wrote a semi-autobiographical play Rangbhoomi. This film is an invocation from that text.
