Chandrasena (1935 - Hindi & Marathi)

This film was directed by Shantaram. It was simultaneously made in Hindi and Marathi. No video format of these movies is available. Fortunately there exist few videos of the Marathi version.

This film was made earlier in 1931, also by Prabhat Films, as a silent film. That was co-directed by Shantaram and Keshavrao Dhaiber.

Following the hit 1934 film “Amrit Manthan” Shantaram wanted to make a social film. But Fatehlal, another partner with Shantaram, already made plans to make a costume drama based on their 1931 silent film “Chandrasena.” He already built sets, several ideas for costumes and accessories. He went to the distance of recreating exquisite sets showing conches, pearls, and shells. Shantaram went along with that idea.

The film originally had Chandra Mohan playing Mahiravan. On the day when shooting was to commence Mohan was a no show. Shantaram enquired about it and found they were given a legal notice to void his contract with Prabhat. Mohan apparently was offered a better salary in another film. A furious Shantaram replaced him with Kelkar. Mohan was then served a legal notice from Prabhat for not honoring the contract he signed. He was also served to pay expenses they have incurred because of his last minute refusal to not participate in the film. Mohan tried to get help and legal advice but for no avail. Then he went back to Shantaram and begged for his forgiveness. Shantaram ultimately pardoned him. After he participated in the 1936 film “Amar Jyoti” Shantaram terminated his contract with Prabhat.

The story of the film was taken from the epic Ramayana. Chandrasena, wife of Mahiravan, helps Hanuman to rescue Rama and Lakshmana imprisoned in Paataala by Mahiravan. She also helps Hanuman in the defeat of Mahiravan’s mighty army.

Mahiravan was a brother of Ravan. He was supposed to be more powerful than Ravan. To avoid any conflict with his own brother, Mahiravan made his kingdom in Paataal.

The film for its period was embellished with many special effects. These included giant sized Hanuman lifting of human figures, a show of arrow wizardry in battle scenes, Hanuman flying in the air, and others. In spite of all this the film was a failure. In the heels of the setback they suffered with India’s first color film, 1933’s “Sairandhri,” this was another failure the partnership has to swallow.

See in the attached picture below Shantaram working on a film set with other craftsmen and technicians. In the second picture a scene from the film is shown where the shot was taken with two cameras and then integrating those images together.

Songs from this film are given starting in the next post…
