NO ENTRY… PUDHE DHOKA AAHEY
In the centenary year celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema, Underground films offers its first Marathi Feature film NO ENTRY PUDHE DHOKA AAHEY.
It is their humble tribute to the Father of Indian cinema Dhundiraj Govind Phalke or Dada Saheb Phalke as he is popularly known, who was a Maharashtrian born on 30 April 1870 in a Deshastha Brahmin family at Trimbakeshwar, 30 km from Nasik, Maharashtra, India. Phalke made his first film, Raja Harishchandra, in 1912; it was first shown publicly on 3 May 1913 at Mumbai’s Coronation Cinema, effectively marking the beginning of the Indian film industry. Phalke proved successful in his new art and proceeded to make several silent films, shorts, documentary feature, educational, comic, tapping all the potential of this new medium.
So technically the first Indian film though made as a silent film; was a Marathi film made by a Maratha involving local Marathi technicians and shot in an around locales and on sets in Nasik, Maharashtra. Ironically over the ages Marathi films and technicians slipped down to secondary position allowing films in languages other than Marathi takethe lead. Cinema viewing audiences of Marathi films dipped and thereby the box office revenue. Today, nearly forty percent of the collections of Bollywood films come from the state of Maharashtra and eighty to eighty five percent of the Bollywood film viewing audience comprises of ethnic Maharashtrians.
