Kalatirtha . . .

Inspired by the passion of the Pioneer legendary film maker, the Doyen of Indian Film industry Hon. Shri Dadasaheb Phalake, we, the Kalatirtha team, are committed to walk his laid down path.
With the quest to nurture the culture along with embracing the challenges posed by the new millennium, ‘Kalatirtha’ started its journey in the year 2016 and stands proudly, making its mark in the ever dynamic field of film making. With the technological disruptions bombarding viewers with the overload of audio-visual contents through varied mediums including OTTs, websites and movies, we pledge to ensure the delivery of quality contents that surpass the commercial and persuasive biases.
We intend to provide a platform for creators of quality content that mirror the emotional, social, cultural and artistic view of the society at large. We responsibly encourage creation of genuine, unbiased, and value based contents in the film making arena. The pursuit of quality content creation is incomplete without its worthy recognition. Thus, we endeavor to be the right medium between the Quality conscious creators and its appreciative viewers.
