    A biopic from a reverent viewpoint

    It is too bad that some religious sensitivities in India have kept this
    film from wide circulation so far. Guru Nanak is not very well
    understood outside the Sikhs themselves and northern India. The
    producer of this film has made a remarkable effort to create a film of
    high technical standards to address this.

    The film is essentially a straight line biography. Guru Nanak’s image
    is created through CGI, but all other characters are played live by
    actors. The sets, costumes and locations are well done. Cinematography
    is of high caliber. The music is perhaps the best aspect of this film.

    The story line is essentially a string of parables – almost all of
    which are well known to any Sikh but would be instructive to anyone new
    to this topic. In my view, even though it’s a biography and we all know
    how it is going to end, certain point of conflict and thus a climax
    could have been created to make the story more interesting to the
    broader audience. Perhaps in a future rendition.

    But this can be understood by considering that the makers of this film
    treated the subject very carefully and in a reverent manner. Apparently
    to placate the sensitivities of the devout, and yet, ironically, the
    film has been mired in controversy in India regardless. It’s a shame
    really as the film actually serves a very good purpose in my view.

    Highly recommended.
