This is a film about Nabani Das Bauls life the writer of this film is 'Tara Shankar' who spent years with Nabani Das ... The song this actor is singing is written by Nabani Das Baul. The actor was Nabani Das's friend Nitish Muke...rjee who played the part, he spent month learning from Nabani to play this part.. Nabani never like acting ect.. This movie is from an novel Bok Babaji about Nabani Das Baul..in Bengali it was never translated into english..
The cult of kirtan maybe was popularized by Sri Chaitanya but he got the cult of kritan from Sri Nityananda as Nitai was a Baul and they had been singing kirtan and Baul songs for thousands of years. Chaitanya was a scholar and best friend ...of Nitai and the Hare Krishna mahamantra, kirtan ect naturally flowed to his best friend Chaitanya.. this has been written out of history .... and this needs to be told, it is from the oral tradition not a book tradition of personal opinions based on gathering devotee's and selling books. Jai Nitai..
