The revered saint and philosopher -poet Tukaram (1608-49), is possibly the only saint whose importance and popularity has not diminished through the centuries. Tukaram impressed upon the community that one can seek and attain spiritual knowledge even as one carries out worldly duties.
Tukaram was born in 1608 in Dehu, a village near Pune in a family who were devoted followers of the deity Vitthal or Vithoba (a form of Lord Vishnu, the Preserver in the Hindu Trinity). The family belonged to the Kunbi caste and they were moneylenders and traders by profession.
This film traces the journey of a common man to sainthood. It is a journey that gives us immense confidence. Tukaram`s era comprises of the period when the people of Maharashtra were being exploited by the Adilshahi and Nizamshahi rule. This great saint-poet awakened the self-esteem of these common people. He instilled in them the emotion that their lives were valuable too. In doing so, he helped to gather soldiers for the establishment of the Maratha empire. He brought verve and confidence to a frustrated, depressed society. What better miracle could there be?
