Adv. Samruddhi Porey, the first woman director to win a national award right through her debut film, ‘Mala Aai Vhayachaya’ is now coming to meet the audiences with a new ambitious film. Through her next awe-inspiring film Adv. Samruddhi Porey is now poised to present the life saga of Dr. Prakash Amte a lifetime dedicated social worker who has left no stone unturned while relentlessly striving for the development of the Adivasi people spread in the nook and corners of the Gadchiroli district.
Both the audiences and the critics overwhelmingly praised her film, ‘Mala Aai Vhayachaya’. Not only did the film prove to be a grand commercial success but it hoisted the flag of its glorious success throughout the world by winning several national and international awards also. Therefore, the audiences were definitely curious about her next artwork. It is through her, both commitment and obsession to produce a world-class piece of art, she has decided to present an inspiring film about the entire passage of life of Dr. Prakash Amte.
Through their renowned ‘Lok-Biradari Project’ founded more than 40 years ago, Dr. Prakash Amte and his wife Dr. Manda Amte have been consistently striving for the noble cause of uplifting the Adivasis dwelling through the most remote and harsh forests at Hemalkasa situated in the Gadchiroli district. During the early days when they started this arduous task even the basic amenities like electricity, education and a dispensary had not reached up to these downtrodden Adivasis. Even their language was not same as what we talk into with each other. But in spite of such several mighty challenges, Dr. Prakash and Dr. Manda Amte emerged to produce a widely acclaimed project out of the completely hollow vacuum they confronted there. Not only with the Adivasis there but they evolved a new bond of affection with the surrounding wild animals and the natural environment. Today, along with the local Adivasis, even the dreadful animals like leopards, lions and snakes have become their intimate friends no less than any other family members of them.
While dedicating his entire life for the sacred mission of uplifting the abjectly poor and awfully illiterate Adivasis, carried out till this date incessantly without any deserving grand publicity, Dr. Prakash Amte received the first sermons of the social-work from his legendary father Baba Amte and mother Sadhanatai Amte. Whether it was the independence movement with Mahatma Gandhi or the service of the thousands of leprosy-affected people outcast by the society, Baba Amte dedicated all his life for his divine cause and Dr. Prakash too has continued this auspicious legacy through the medium of his arduously undertaken movement of ‘Lok-Biradari Project’.
