GUWAHATI: ‘Vaishnava-Being Humane,’ a short dance film has won the ‘Best Music Video (Jury)’ award at the 7th Indian Cine Film Festival, 2019 held in Mumbai on September 8, 2019.
The short film has been made by combining Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite bhajan, “Vaishnav Jan to” composed by Adi-Kavi Narsinh Mehta of Gujarat and Srimanta Sankaradeva’s excerpts from “Kirtana” and tuning them with raga and tala of Sattriya dance and Borgeethas.
The film has made its official entry in some noted film festivals across the country. It pays tribute to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary through Sattriya dance. The film is based on the concept designed by IRS officer Padmapani Bora and noted Sattriya dancer Mridusmita Das, recipient of Sangeet Natak Academy’s Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar.
