We were disappointed to see the closed gates of this film factory. We enquired and found that this factory has been closed due to environmental reasons, issues and will not reopen. Please do not plan any visit if you are interested to go thru' this factory.

While most of the tourist attractions in Ooty are directed towards its scenic panorama, many are unaware that Ooty is a multi-purpose tourist destination in India and hence has a lot more of interesting sites to see with the Hindustan Photo Films being one of those places to visit in Ooty

Nothing to see, but just to see the factory from outside, which produced the iconic INDU photo films of yesteryear. The entire place looks still active, but not sure what is happening around the place. Also was able to see INDU Nagar, may be the place where people who worked in HPF lived and also live till now.
