A wonderful journey of one man, who dedicated his life to service, the film, “Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe”, received a favourable opening on its first day in the city. The film inspired by the life of a humanitarian saint and the founder of Pingalwara, Bhagat Puran Singh, released worldwide and aims to promote humanitarian service.
The All-India Pingalwara Charitable Society hosted a special screening of the film at Suraj Chanda Tara, with eminent residents attending the show. The screening was preceeded by a special ardas that was held at the Pingalwara branch at Manawala and later the inmates along with the staff and volunteers of Pingalwara too became an audience to the special show. Dr Inderjit Kaur, director, Pingalwara, presided over the event and addressed everyone who had a role in the making of the film. “It was an emotional ode to our mentor, father and a great human being, Bhagat ji, who showed us that gratifying the soul is more important than gratifying material needs.” The screening was attended by director Harijit Singh along with some actors from the film. As expected, the film moved the audience, some of who were seen crying during touching scenes.
Arvinder Bhatti, actor, who plays the role of Giani Acchar Singh, head Granthi of Gurudwara Dehra Saheb, where Bhagat ji served before coming to Amritsar, was all praise for the film. “The film should be considered an achievement, cinematically as well as for sending out a social message. I took my children along as they did not know about this selfless man and his great deeds.”
Tarandeep Kaur, a nursing student, too felt that the film was honest in its execution and appeal. “It’s a great film that will educate our youth about Pingalwara and the selfless attitude of its sewadars besides humanising society towards the destitute. Everyone should watch the film.”
Dr Jagdeepak Singh, executive member of Pingalwara trust and a reputed ENT surgeon, too considers the film to be one of the finest in recent years. “It’s a soul-stirring film. It’s an emotional film and good cinematically as well. Promoting the film is a social cause.” He was accompanied by five of his postgraduate medical students, for whom the film was an education.
The film has opened in all four major multiplexes as well as single-screen theatres in the city, with an average of five shows every day. Experts predict good potential business from the film, given its good first- day response. “The film opened to a good response and will perform well as it’s a family film. The business can increase over the weekend due to good word-of-mouth publicity,” said Davinder Singh, manager, Big cinemas, Amritsar.
