This classic film chronicles the life of Tukaram (17th C.), one of Maharashtra's most popular saint poets, activating the 20th-C. resonances of his turning away from courtly Sanskrit towards vernacular rhythms of religious poetry which constituted the first major emancipatory movement against brahmanical caste domination. The episodic plot pits Tukaram (Pagnis) against the Brahmin Salomalo (Bhagwat), who pretends to be the true author of Tukaram's songs while calling for his ostracization. Written by

I don't know what to write on this comment, but i will make it as brief as i can. Sant Tukaram is a wonderful and magical movie about hope and faith in religion. This movie takes place in the forgotten 16th century, and tells the life of a poet named Sant Tukaram. Tukaram is a poor village man who has to overcome his obstacles within the village people. But the message he passes on to the people is enduring and something unforgettable.
The movie is in Marathi language, something from my native place and i was hard to read the sub-text of the script. The script is truly solid and magical. The world of fantasy is never this vivid and clear. People who believe in faith and religion should definitely see this movie. The Acting is good together with the chemistry between him and his wife, he always tries to give the message of faith and doing good deeds to others. The Special Effectrs also seemed very original and was very appreciated with the teenage audience i was watching with. The Songs are truly delightful and do good relaxations in the middle of the movie. I give the movie a 9 out of 10. It is very hard to find this movie, but when you do make an attempt to watch it.
