Indian early cinematic pioneer D.G. Phalke remakes his 1913 groundbreaking opus of the same name, this time with a bigger set and a bigger budget, based on a story written by Vinayak Prasad Talib. At the film's outset, King Harishchandra (D.D. Dabke), with his wife, Taramati (Anna Salunke), by his side, is showing his young son the finer points of archery. During a hunting expedition, the king and his party accidentally wander onto the sacred space of a holy man named Vishwamitra. To atone for his blunder, Harishchandra considers renouncing his crown and his family. Only a last-minute interdiction by Krishna saves the day.
