Jerry Pinto's Film Reviews
Harishchandrachi Factory is a romp. It is funny, well paced and stays with the two years in which Dhundiraj Govind Phalke made his first film, the now legendary Raja Harishchandra. We all know that women, even sex workers, refused to act in cinema, but it is great to see how the high-born Brahmin Phalke (Nandu Madhav) must deal with the one woman who agrees, and how Mrs Phalke (Vibhavari Deshpande) must comb her hair and remove the lice.
