A middle class young man from Mumbai’s chawl who became the first dancing star of Hindi film industry - Master Bhagwan.
A man coming from humble beginnings dared to dream.. dreams way beyond the confines of his middle-class surroundings; dreams far-fetched and unassailable....
And so his life has been a journey, a dance, a celebration. Celebration of the spirit called Albela. He was not a dancer; he was the dance. Not an actor, but the act itself. Not the director but the film itself. He made it a part of his being erasing the thin line that divides the artiste from his art.
‘Ekk Albela’ is the story of his aspirations, his travails, his tribulations, his conflicts, his losses and his phoenix-like emergence from the ashes of these to reach the zenith of his career.
It is as much the story of the making of a Man as much as it is about the making of a 1951 super hit Hindi film ‘Albela’. It is an untold story of India’s iconic dancing superstar – Mesmerizing millions by his iconic dance moves, he was credited with several firsts, with his social film ‘Albela’ scaling unparalleled heights when released.
‘Ekk Albela’ is an invitation to explore the unexplored, to expect the unexpected. Come and let go...and perhaps you might step in the same river twice. Though philosophically impossible, cinema perhaps can create this illusion.
