HARISHCHANDRA'S FACTORY is an Indian film in the Marathi language, with English subtitles. It tells the story of the beginning of the Indian film industry, focusing on DG Phalke and his family working together to make his dream of becoming a film-maker come true.

This film received a 'U' classification as the issues it contains are very mild. There is one use of mild bad language in the English subtitles, when a man dismisses a teacher's lesson as "progressive crap". This is the only use of bad language in the entire film, and as it only appears in the subtitles and is not accompanied by any aggression or used directly to insult anyone, it was felt that on this occasion it could be contained at the 'U' category.

There is also a very mild and oblique reference to prostitution when Phalke approaches a woman, asking her to be in his film for a wage of 3 rupees, and her friend says, "Three rupees? That's what she earns in a night!" While an adult would understand that this is an indication the women are prostitutes, a child would not be likely to understand this innuendo as it is so subtle.
