GUWAHATI: In a very heartening news, Assamese animated film titled 'Mahapurush Sri Sri Madhabdeva' has been receiving high praise and critical acclamation in various film festivals held around the world. The film, produced by Ramani Chitramm Memorial Trust, is conceptualized, scripted and directed by noted promoter, preserver of Sattriya culture and philanthropist, late Dalim Pathak.

It has always been Dalim Pathak's endeavour to disseminate and promote the philosophy of saints Sankardeva, and his faithful disciple Madhabdeva, the creator of the epoch-making – 'Naam Ghosa'. The film has bagged the Best Animation Film at the prestigious Athens International Monthly Art Film Festival, 2022, for the month of January and the Special Mention award for Music at the Tokyo International Monthly Film Festival 2022.

Besides being a final nominee at the prestigious Budapest Film Festival, it has been officially selected to Kwetu International Animation Film Festival (KIAFF), Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Festival del Cinema di Cefalu held in Sicily, Italy, Lift-Off Filmmaker Sessions @PinewoodStudios, among others.

The film has greatly impressed audiences at the international festival circuit, which is quite a commendable achievement and a great sign for the future of animation movies in Assam. Apart from being a visual treat, the film offered something unique and transcendental to the keen cinephiles, who were deeply engrossed by the incredible life and times of the revered 15th-century scholar and Vaishnavite saint Madhabdeva, widely known as an important preceptor of the Ekasarana Naam Dharma and for his contributions to the legacy of Sankardeva.

The film has been made with an attempt to spread the intellectual and spiritual legacy of Mahapurush Madhabdeva, and the need for the new generation to follow the saint's footsteps and uphold traditional values, which have eroded to a great extent. The music of 'Mahapurush Sri Sri Madhabdeva' has been composed by noted Sattriya artiste Gunindra Nath Ojha, classical vocalist Jiten Basumatary and noted singer Hemen Das, stated a press release.
