“Ganesa” – A 30 minute documentary on Lord Ganesh (1998)

“Ganesa” (1998) – Directed and Produced by Sorab Irani

The Ganesh festival is world famous and synonymous with Mumbai. Yet while millions of us Mumbaikars take part in the festivities probably a few of us understand the iconography, the mythology and the political compulsions that has made this iconic festival come to become what it is.

I want to share with you a well researched half hour film directed and produced by my dad Sorab Irani, and me as the associate director in the year 1998. It is immensely entertaining yet informative and we see that the character of Bombay has not changed really so much in regards its common citizens even if its name is now Mumbai.

Excellent piece of work. Covers the symbolism, the mythology and the spirit of Ganesh Chaturthi in its entirety. Very informative as well

Riddhiman, Thanks a ton for your feedback and I am sure dad will be very happy that a film made by us in 1998 is still so relevant and is serving its purpose of informing and entertaining. Please do share the film with like minded people.
