Movie Info

The film develops Rabindranath Tagore's (1861-1941) genius and his contribution in arts, music, literature, philosophy, education. It exemplifies the poet's impact on world leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and prolific thinkers such as Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell. The film highlights the recognition of poet Tagore by the UN and UNESCO in 2010 as a world teacher, Guru for all mankind in a celebration in Paris, paying tribute to him as an educator and a humanist. Rabindranath established Vishwa Bharati, an international university at Shantiniketan, West Bengal where European and Asian professors taught and students came from far and wide to study. The film examines Rabindranath, a prolific writer, poet and author who composed over 4000 poems and songs; dance dramas, novels, short stories, essays and travel diaries; his nearly 3000 paintings. It shows world wide sesquicentennial anniversary celebrations of birth. The film famously notes that Rabindranath never reconciled to the fact that World War I started after he was awarded the Nobel Prize. The messenger of peace and universal man lectured over 30 countries preaching harmony and peace for the next 25 years. And yet when World War II loomed large, the poet was beside himself with grief. He begged earnestly to poet Noguchi in Japan and to US president FD Roosevelt in vain for peace. The poet breathed his last in August, 1941. (C) Quad Cinema
