Storyline

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 Sujit R. Varma

Sant Tukaram - a must watch, a humble submission and request
12 October 2013 | by hotmaleajaygSee all my reviews

Namaste, im a Hindi speaking Bharatiya, just understand fragments of marathi. This is the first movie after watching, that i really do not have words to express. This movie is so good, that using words would not justify. So a humble effort at to express this movie in words. The initial thought was, "what kind of a movie would they make in the black and white era" But this movie brought tears to my eyes. This is a must watch movie for every individual on the planet.

It shows Sant Tukaram's single minded devotion towards Bhagwaan Pandurang and the intense adversity that He was able to overcome by Bhagwaan Pandurangs Grace. Sant Tukaram was the only saint to achieve sadheha mukti.

All the events in the movie are real (although there were a lot more events). The sattvikta of the actors, the acting, the speech, words and the spiritual energy in the words is unmatched. While watching the movie never for a minute does one ever feel that we are watching a movie or that the actors are playing a character. It feels like the entire life of a Saint flashing by as real, for each and every character. This is where the movie scores in ALL departments. So much of natural flow, depth and humility in the actors. You actually experience it!

Through the difficult and seemingly impossible events in life, Sant Tukaram's surrender, faith devotion (Bhakti) solves even the most complicated problems in life.

By the end of the movie, we all can learn an everlasting lesson. The same struggle of good people v/s the bad, the same things still continue even in todays times. Only the backdrop (Time) changes. This movie is applicable and practical even today.

I don't think this generation has ever witnessed such a movie. Honestly rating it 10/10 is also too less. No number can quantify the value of this movie. My only submission to anyone who gets across this review is to definitely watch this movie. And if possible do watch this movie with ones children.
