Gopal Krishna (1938) DVD9
This mythological tells of the playful child Krishna (Marathe) and his battle against the evil King Kamsa (Ganpatrao) who rules the city of Gokul. The stories, mainly from the popular 'Bhagvat' and 'Vishnu Purana', also show Krishna vanquishing Keshi (Haribhau), Kamsa's general who arrives in disguise to capture him. Finally, when Kamsa unleashes rain and flood over the city (in a departure from the original legend where Indra caused the natural disaster), Krishna raises the mountain Govardhan over the people to protect them.

Based on the life of Lord Krishna, the film Gopal Krishna is noted for the use of stylish sets, costumes and lively music. One of the notable features of this film is that Lord Krishna has been portrayed as a normal man other than a mythological character. A social drama from Prabhat films, the film evoked lot of anti-British thoughts.
