Based on the life of Vasudev Tembye better known as Tembye Maharaj, the film presents his life journey.
The lives of many saints including Sai Baba, Tukaram and Dnyaneshwar among others have been screened on the silver screen through films. Another divine soul that finds place in this list is Tembye Maharaj who won the hearts of many through his teachings.
Born in the Konkan town of Mangaon, Vasudev Tembye (Ananda Karekar) was a humble young man who revered and worshipped Lord Datta. While his family got him married, Vasudev always wanted to lead the life of a sanyasi. For him it was always devotion before family and self and this lead to his mother giving up on trying to make him understand. After the demise of his father, the responsibility of the household falls on Vasudev's shoulders but he is more interested in helping people. On a trip to Narsobachi Wadi he meets Govind Swami (Yatin Karyekar) who tells him to continue his good work. Vasudev does so but loses a lot on his way to attain sainthood.
The film sends out a message of faith and belief in god and succeeds in doing so. The camera work is good but the story itself is a tad bit long. Its focus on the need of sacrifice, patience and the need to remain calm in face of adversity is too ideological. Ananda Karyekar has looked and acted every bit like a saint with his calm demeanour and expressions.
This one can be a good watch for followers of the saint and others looking at understanding the life of one
