At the 54th India international Film Festival which is held at Goa movie ” The Light “grabbed the attention of the audience due to its unique concept and cinematography. The movie depicted a story on the women’s empowerment which is a burning issue in the society as we all talk about. This is a Biopic based on the life of” Dada
Lekhraj Kripalani, founder of Bhramakumari known as Pitashri Bhrama”. The story is derived from the book “Ek Adbhut Jeevan Khani” penned by Jagdish Chander.
Bhramakumari is a spiritual organisation which has been successfully running in 137 countries, spreading the message of spirituality.
Shoojit Sircar who is the creative producer of the movie, stated that he produced so many movies but this bio feature amazed me how this organisation actually does many deeds for the women’s empowerment,i visited Bhramakumari’s centre at Mount Abu and I wonder this organisation actually empowering women’s empowerment whereas in the world,we are merely talking about.This animation movie is indeed worth watching.
Prasad Ajgaonkar stated who gave this movie a realistic touch by animation stated that ,the story of “The Light” revolves around Baba Lekhraj’s life, how an affluent diamond merchant who gave away all his wealth and property to a trust aiming to empower women as well as spread awareness of human values and whose ultimate desire is to bring peace and harmony in the world through meditation and spirituality,to give realistic touch to this graceful story by animation is a very challenging task,yet i leave no stone unturned.
