CINEMARGAAN PRESENTS
Film Name : Moner Manush
Song : Bedheche Emono Ghor
Moner Manush is a Bengali feature film based on the life and philosophy of Fakir Lalan Shah, a noted spiritual leader, poet and folk singer of Bengal in the 19th century. Directed by Goutam Ghose, the film has Prosenjit as the lead actor portraying the character of Lalan Fakir. Paoli Dam plays the character of Komli, the key female disciple of Lalan.[1]

Moner Manush has been regarded as one of the best creations of recent times, based on the response received by people of Bengal. This effort from Goutom Ghosh comes in the time of growing Bengali movies, making it certain that the revival of golden period of Bengali cinema is not far away.

The movie has won 58th National Award for the "Best Film on National Integration".
The movie seems to be a collaboration between India and Bangladesh .

Quote:
Lalon Shah (Bengali: মহাত্মা লালন শাহ, also Mahatma Lalon Fakir; c. 1774–1890)[4][5], was a Bengali Baul saint, mystic, songwriter, social reformer and secular thinker. In Bengali culture he has become an icon of religious tolerance and secularism whose songs inspired and influenced many poets and social and religious thinkers including Rabindranath Tagore,[1][2][6][7] Kazi Nazrul Islam,[3] and Allen Ginsberg - though, as he "rejected all distinctions of caste and creed",[1] he was both praised and criticized in his lifetime and after his death.[8] His disciples mostly live in Bangladesh and West Bengal. He founded the institute known as Lalon Akhdah in Cheuriya, about 2 km. from Kushtia railway station. Some call him the founder of the Bauls.
Quote:
The texts of his songs engage in philosophical discourses of Bengal, continuing Tantric traditions of the Indian subcontinent, particularly Nepal, Bengal and the Gangetic plains. He appropriated various philosophical positions emanating from Hindu, Jainist, Buddhist and Islamic traditions, developing them into a coherent discourse without falling into eclecticism or syncretism. He explicitly identified himself with the Nadiya school, with Advaita Acharya, Nityananda and Chaitanya. He was greatly influenced by the social movement initiated by Chaitanya against differences of caste, creed and religion. His songs reject any absolute standard of right and wrong and show the triviality of any attempt to divide people whether materially or spiritually.
