Biopic on Sant Tukaram, one of the greatest saints to emerge from Maharashtra. Born in an affluent family, Tukaram's childhood is a largely happy one. As an adult, he capably shoulders responsibility of his father's profession as a money lender and is a dutiful son. He marries twice and each of his wives bears him one child each. Then a terrible famine ravages the land and the family falls on hard times and starvation. But then, after several long years, the rains come. Tukaram sees this as a blessing of Lord Vitthal and decides to dedicate the rest of his life to the search of God and the enlightenment of the people, thus becoming Sant (saint) Tukaram.Written by
This movie is very good actually, it is well balanced, not exaggerating in miracles, "divine" powers etc., it "only" shows the life of Tukaram with much included wisdom and beauty. I am surprised by the low ranking, because it really brings the saint closer to humans in the way that humans can grasp his ideas and existence and learn from it. Perhaps there are some Hindutva elements, but in general it is quite universally conceived. Works quite peacefully on mind. Some poems (abhangas) of Tukaram are present there. Quite good casting, because it had to be mainly from Maharashtra villagers. Some nice images of Maharashtra.
