Sinhagad is a 1933 Marathi historical drama film directed by V. Shantaram. The production company was Prabhat Film Company. The story was based on Hari Narayan Apte's literary classic novel "Gad Ala Pan Sinha Gela" (I Won The Fort But Lost A Lion). Apte was a famous Marathi novelist of the early twentieth century. The story's screenplay and dialogue were written by Govindrao Tembe who also provided the music for the film. The cinematographers were V. Avadhoot and Keshavrao Dhaiber. The cast included Master Vinayak, Baburao Pendharkar, Keshavrao Dhaiber, Leela Chandragiri, Shinde, Prabhavati, Budasaheb and Shankarrao Bhosle.
The film though based on the classic, followed the schematic pattern of the earlier silent film version by Baburao Painter Sinhagad (1923), and was based on Maratha Emperor Shivaji's Lieutenant, the folk-hero Tanaji Malusare
Udaybhanu (Baburao Pendharkar) captures Kamlakumari who is planning to commit Sati and brings her to his fort in Kondana. Tanaji Malasure prepares to attack the fort with fifty soldiers. He manages to scale it but is killed in the battle with Udaybhanu. Shivaji arrives and wins the fort but he is despondent on losing his most trusted Lieutenant.
