Kolhapur: The Birthplace of Indian Cinema

 The Marathi film industry is arguably the oldest film industry in India. It pioneered film-making in India in 1912 with the release of Shree Pundalik, directed and produced by Ramchandra Gopal “Dadasaheb” Torne. But technically, this 22-minute long recording of a Marathi play is not considered a full length feature film. Since it involved a British cameraman and all the processing work was completed in London, it is not considered a full Indian-made venture
