A landmark initiative to create a fully animated movie entitled “Motherhood – the Journey of Mata Sahib Kaur” depicting the life of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji and her rich contributions to the Sikh nation, will hit the screens in December 2020.
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 groundbreaking 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, are 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.
About the movie, Baba 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.”
