The film 'Raja Harishchandra' was the story of a king called Harishchandra. He was a very benevolent king who took care of his kingdom and subjects. He had very high ideals and which he valued above everything. His path was the path of truth and he never gave up on this even is very tough times. Truth and integrity were his most valued possessions unlike the politicians of today. He had to sacrifice his kingdom and all material wealth and to the extent, even sold his wife Taramati, his son Rohit, and eventually himself to stick to his path of truth.
The suffering and struggle of king Harishchandra and and his family for the sake of truth is what the movie projected.
