Musical about the life of Lalon Fakir
4 January 2007 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Lalon is Tavir Mokammel's attempt to portray the life story and philosophy of mystic baul poet of Bengal, Fakir Lalon Shah. 80% of the movie revolves around beautiful baul songs, although the songs are selected meticulously to fit the progression of the movie. Raisul Islam Asad portrayed the character of Lalon with perfection. Tanvir Mokammel also tries to touch in detail the philosophy of Lalon Shah in this movie. We come the know from the movie that one of the main goals of Lalon Shah in his life was to find the answer of purpose of creation of life in this world. His thoughts were influenced by Hinduism, Muslim and Buddha's teachings, although he kind of created his own way of explaining the mysterious nature of GOD, the reason of creating mankind and the relationship of GOD and mankind. The cinematography is exquisite. Acting of other performers is also good. A good movie to learn about this mystic philosopher's thoughts.
