While Indian movies usually do extremely well in the homeland, the formula to cut it in the international scene has still been elusive. To get noticed abroad, the movies need to have a combination of a lot of influences, they need to tug at your heart-strings and retain a certain amount of Indian-ness. Getting through it all, the third instalment of MSG series, MSG: The Warrior Lionheart, starring Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan stood out and have successfully made it through the cracks to international acclaim. Over the last many years, the Berlin Film Festival has been selecting various films from India that depends on the quality of films produced worldwide, so it’s quite another feather in Saint MSG’s cap, that this year his MSG: The Warrior Lionheart got screened at EFM, Berlin Film Festival 2017 on February 14.
MSG: The Warrior Lion Heart is a story of a Rajput Warrior from Rajasthan, who existed 300 years ago, and while usually emperors fight for their land or for riches, this warrior fought for the honor of Women and his motherland. The aliens from outer space pose a danger for the planet and womenfolk and they are hundreds of years ahead in technology and Lion Heart fights with these powerful beings, using wisdom from Ancient India. According to sources, the film’s unconventional content to evoke selflessness, patriotism and sacrifice among youth has worked its magic at international platform. The screening was graced by various guests present over there including Petri Mauranen (Night Vision Distribution, Finland), Tayfun Tezgoren (Medyavizyon Gorsel Medya Productions, Turkey), Bogdan Movileanu (Romania Film Center, Romania), Hossien Karami (From Berlin Film Festival), Stefan Kristoffson (Stratic, Germany), accompanied by various other famous personalities. Winning accolades from critics and having gotten the patronage of discerning cinema goers, this family entertainment, a genre that has hitherto been less explored by Bollywood, left an indelible impression on everyone present there with an astute taste. “Varsha Hai Aayee Bahar hai Layee” had been the talk of the evening, a song portrayed on Indian Farmers mesmerized everyone with its lyrics, picturisation and grandeur sets.
Also, the fourth instalment from MSG series and the sequel to MSG: The Warrior Lion Heart, Hind Ka NaPak Ko Jawab is riding high and has gathered an unexpected momentum in the country. While Dr. MSG was credited with 30 credits in MSG The Warrior Lion Heart, he seems to have handled every department in HKNKJ taking this number to 43 breaking every record that exist out there. His daughter Honeypreet Insan also the co-director and Actor in HKNKJ has managed 22 departments in this film, breaking the record of Jackie Chan. We can only wait and watch for what’s more is in store for this father daughter duo starrer HKNKJ.
