Hemalkasa The Film

Synopsis

(This is first footstep in Bollywood by National Award winner Director Samruddhi Porey)

Hemalkasa – A small “country” within a country, which is still not on a map of India. A place, where they still continue to wear tribal outfits which consist of little to no clothing at all and tribal’s run a parallel Government. This is where the real story begins in the dense forest of Hemalkasa where Baba Amte struggled with tribals, wild animal, Naxalites and corrupt government officials

He became restless seeing that, on one hand people had reached the moon while here still people were living as animals. They use to hunt and sleep under the tree. Prakash went there just to treat them but became a part of them.

This movie showcases an individual who was unaware of his destination but became an inspiration to the world by teaching the epitome of self actualization. After finishing his doctor degree, Prakash’s father Baba Amte, took him on a picnic to Hemalkasa, but that was not only a picnic but a turning point in Prakash’s life. Dr.Mandakini and Prakash loved each other from college days. Leaving her luxurious life behind, she decided to accompany Prakash without any condition and this is how their journey began.

The movie is real story of someone who is living an amazing life in one corner of the world with wild animals and his mission which is a beautiful example of humanity for the world.
