The Bioscopewallah is a brief encounter with an entertainer, Rau Waghmare who is also a rare occasion for pure and simple joy for children.

A dalit folk artist, hit by an unfortunate drought Rau narrates in colloquial Marathi the story of his struggle for survival in the face of a natural calamity and migration.

Rauís cheerful singing and gestures, his unconditional pride in the bioscope stand in contrast to the lurking shadows of poverty and failing health.
