This Life Is Yours Lord ~ Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe

 

This film is a journey of one man “BHAGAT PURAN SINGH” who treaded a difficult and exhausting path. The journey was made possible by his infinite faith in his mission: the moral values he received from his mother: and courage, vision and determination he received from Guru Granth Sahib. With compassion in his heart he found energy that can move mountains and create miracles.

 

The film is an important chapter in the history of post – partition Punjab. A varied approach to meaningful events would carry great appeal and emotionally connect with the audience. The rich music score soaked in traditional punjabi sounds, Shabads, songs and the culturally rich rhythms emanate fresh waves of sound that the listeners will savour with delight.

 

The tireless research done for the film makes it a very authentic and genuine attempt to recreate the life and the times of a penniless man who calls himself “ a humble sweeper at the footsteps of Gods abode”. He ferried an invalid for many

years on his shoulders and over a span of time the burden of every helpless human became a garland around his neck. In his arduous journey he was joined by millions of altruistic human beings who supported his noble cause without knowing the sheer magnitude of the herculean task of the man who undertook it.

The film is sure to draw the crowds for its honesty, sincerity, brilliant performances, music and a story everyone will relate with. It is an awe-inspiring

journey of a human being who commits a lifetime to serving humanity and preserving the environment. Bhagat Puran Singh was a visionary, a deeply spiritual, sensitive and compassionate human being. This true account of his life shines with authenticity and is poised to set a new benchmark in biography cinema.

The music of a film is its quivering soul. It is a colour palette that seeks to paint a rainbow of sounds and makes the film converse directly with the viewers’ heart. ‘Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe’ is the journey of a selfless man ‘Bhagat Puran Singh’ whose heart aches and breaks to see the suffering of the crippled, the homeless and the destitute.

 

The music for such a film has to seek the therapeutic sounds of divine Gurbani that healed and redeemed Bhagat Puran Singh’s soul in times of severe test and difficulty. The movie embarks on this journey with Baba Nanak’s Aarti. It is not easy to deliver a rendition of the Aarti which is the ‘universal anthem of the mankind’ as Tagore had once put it, but Sukhwinder Singh draws upon the inner light of divine guidance and paints the universe with all its brilliance, doing justice to Baba Nanak’s words in the Shabad.

 

Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe’ is a pining of soul that comes to a realisation that after countless births it has decided to give itself completely to the Almighty, the little light has conceded to merge with the brilliance of the sun: Bhagat Puran Singh has committed his life to the service of the poor, the crippled and sick. He sees his mother in them, they see God in their saviour. This Shabad of the ultimate surrender needed a voice that carries the ache in every note, Javed Ali pours it into every alphabet. He does the same when he longs to taste the divine nectar of His Love… ‘ Main Prem na Chakhyo’. The Shabads draw great parallels with Bhagatji’s life who has longed for the love of his mother and found redemption in selfless service.

 

Bhagat Puran Singh’s journey is of healing the world and as he continues to ring the brass bell and lug his Pyara on his shoulders, his tryst with the world continues and his inner journey to seek strength from the Lord also continues midst hardships. ‘Mil Mere Pritma Jiyo’ in Mandeep Mand’s voice echoes to heal the pains.

 

A lullaby is a mother’s overflowing cup of love and Bhagat Puran Singh’s life is nothing but an essay of his mother’s teachings. She lit the lamp of compassion in his heart so to sing a lullaby penned by Dr. Tejinder Harjit (who soaked it in love’s ink liberally) was not an easy task. The versatile Harshdeep Kaur brings a voice fragrant with motherhood and delivers a moving peace to fondly remind the listener of lullabies heard as a child.

 

He is the Noah who builds the Arc of hope for the suffering humanity and they see visions of God in their saviour Bhagat Puran Singh. The gratitude is heartfelt and beautifully expressed by Palak Muchhal in the song ‘Sada Rab’.

 

Dr. Tejinder Harjit lets her imagination go back to the swings of a childhood monsoon and she rides it with delight to bring the fresh breeze of ‘Kanna Manna Kurrr..’ a song that represents the rare and precious smiles on the faces of Pingalwara residents. It is not a flight of fancy but a celebration of hope and none other than Bhagat Puran Singh is dancing like a dervish to the song of laughter that rings in the corridors of the Pingalwara. Zoravar, Gurmoh and Baby Meera lend their voices to this tickle of a song that is infectious and destined to remain hummable long after.

 

To paint a great man in all his simplicity with pastel colours of poetic words that compliment him is difficult. But Dr. Tejinder Harjit moves to the easel and paints Bhagat Puran Singh’s persona and life mission in one brilliant stroke of words “ Hath Vich Bata’ and Vicky Boi sings it with the requisite passion and respect it deserves.

 

Vicky Boi and Gurmoh weave a silken thread of music. It is delicate and befitting tribute to Bhagat Puran Singh. This thread is what holds the beads of shabads and songs in a sacred rosary, the thread of their music is what brings the prayer of these words alive. ‘Eh Janam Tumhare Lekhe’ is a musical treat for the listeners across the board, an amalgam of classical, modern, sufi, ethnic and folk sounds that creates a delectable collage.
