New Film Release ‘Motherhood – the Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur’
The importance of female figures in Sikh history is significant. However, not many are aware of the contributions of females in the past to Sikhi. In order to enable the public to obtain a deeper insight into the prominence of female influence in Sikhi, a brand new 3D animation movie about Mata Sahib Kaur Ji to be released in December 2020. A landmark initiative has taken place to create a fully animated movie, titled Motherhood – the Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur, which will depict the life of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji and her rich contributions to the Sikh nation.
Mata Sahib Kaur Ji was bestowed the unique status of Mother of the Khalsa, by the 10th Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji. However, to this date very little, if any, parchaar has been done about Mata Ji, whose name remains unrecognised outside Amritdhari families. This movie will not only highlight Mata Sahib Kaur Ji’s prestigious role, but also shine on the influences of Sikh women in general.
Both international and national animation teams will be working on this ground- breaking project, including renowned Bollywood writer-director Satdeep Singh (director of Proud to be Sikh), award-winning music director Jaidev Kumar and music maestro Gulzar.
Scenes will portray Mata Ji courageously managing the Sikh Panth after Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji leaves for Sachkhand and arranging mass marriages of girls from poor families. The brave and heroic qualities, as well as the benevolent nature of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, is sure to captivate viewers in a way never accomplished before.
Leading this impressive venture is the production company Nihal Nihal Nihal Productions (N3 Productions), under the guidance of mukh sewadars Baba Gurbax Singh Ji and Baba Dr Karandeep Singh Ji, from Gurdwara Sewewala Sahib, Fardikot, Punjab. Karandeep Singh Ji states: “This movie has taken inspiration from historical granths by Kavi Santokh Singh, Dr Bhai Vir Singh and Kahan Singh Nabha, along with complementary bachans of Mahapursh such as Sant Attar Singh Ji Mastuana Wale, Sant Jwala Singh Singh Ji Harkowal wale, Sant Ajit Singh Ji Hansali Wale and Beeba Nihal Kaur Ji Sewewala wale…so much work has gone into the script to keep it as original as possible, without too many fictional scenes.”
