Biography   Edit

Niranjan Pal was born on 17th August 1889 in Calcutta, British India. He was a screenwriter, and director in the Indian film industry in the tranquil and initial talkie days.


Niranjan Pal was closely connected with Franz Osten and Himanshu Rai, with whom he was an establishing associate of Bombay Talkies. As a teenaged boy, he was tempted by the juvenile militant organization in Calcutta, and in a quarrel with a British officer, beat him up and tippet his gun. With a seized warrant out on him, he flew to London, where he stayed with other patriotic like Madanlal Dhingra and Veer Savarkar.
During the endmost of the 1910s, he started penning and finally wrote Shiraz and The Light of Asia, both of which were conducted on stage in London. Both were highly successful and caught the eye of German filmmaker Franz Osten, who made screen adaptations in India. A lawyer named Himanshu Rai, also worked in one of Niranjan Pal's plays Goddess,  though one theory proposes that it was Devika Rani who first finalized him, through their mutual Brahmo Samaj links, which surfaced way for his final stake in the formation of Bombay Talkies.
