Summary: This is a biopic based on the life of Hiralal Sen and his contribution to Indian cinema. Despite giving a new lease of life to Indian cinema, Hiralal’s contribution has not gained much recognition over the years. Many of us know that he was the first Indian filmmaker to make a full-length feature film ‘Alibaba and the Forty Thieves in 1904. Sadly, in 1917, almost every work of Hiralal Sen was destroyed by fire.
