Dr. Prakash Baba Amte

Synopsis

‘Dr. Prakash Baba Amte’ is a biopic on one of India’s true heroes and a living legend.

Baba Amte, Prakash’s father, was a selfless, zealous social worker & activist, whose towering achievements in the field of leprosy patients’ rehabilitation and other social causes, not just showered numerous awards on him but also left an indelible footprint on the socio-cultural make of the country. He was also an internationally recognized and respected figure.

The biopic showcases Dr. Prakash’s transformative life journey – transformations that he brought about not just within himself but also to the society. Walking the talk with his father and inheriting a strong thread of social welfare, Dr. Prakash and his life partner, Dr. Mandakini, who were truly meant to be with each other right from their college days, not just helped Baba Amte but created their own identities as selfless social givers. The movie portrays their life journeys, their numerous struggles with circumstances, the sacrifices they made and the tough situations that they consistently faced.

A 45 years’ long arduous, difficult path that Dr. Prakash treaded upon and the physical, emotional and mental efforts that he had to take in terms of bringing about changes to the lives of the tribals of Hemalkasa while wading through thick forests, fending wild animals and facing resistance from Naxalites and corrupt government officials, is what the movie is about.

Today, Dr. Prakash and Dr. Mandakini are both shining beacons of India. An unbelievable story of human will power, positive thinking and relentless pursuit of goals indeed! Creating a world out of a place that nobody knew existed on earth and bringing it to the forefront of civilized society is a superhuman achievement and the biopic takes the audience through a surreal experience. Dr. Prakash Baba Amte as an ideology got created to change the world and it certainly has!
