The Bhagavad Gita has been told to the world in various ways for so many decades and here are THREE Belgaumites who have made a new 2D animated Bhagavad Gita.
This is directorial debut of Santosh Patil of Belgaum. This Animated film has a graceful combination of graphics and animation in its 18 chapters, 700 Sanskrit verses with Hindi translation and English subtitles. Santosh’s idea was to present the Bhagavad Gita from as many angle of vision as possible-literally, visually and musically.
Vistaas Digital Media Private Limited has produced this and music has been given by Belgaumite Sagar Patil and all songs have been sung by another Belgaumite Rohan Kamat. The entire duration of the DVD is 8 Hours and 42 mins.
Debutant director Santosh told this blog, “When I was with this concept, I was like meeting daily for music director and making some good sample but at the end I was not satisfied. A friend told me about Sagar Patil she gave me his contact details then I have contacted him for the same and what he has rendered is now infront of you, super awesome.”
“I never know that I could find my crew from Belgaum only” added Santosh.
The Musical Bhagavad Gita is easy to understand and pronounce Sanskrit with the help of music and the meaning of that Sanskrit verse is in character Animation because it’s easy to visualize that scenario.
