India base Studio Charuvi Design Labs release The first official teaser for “Shri Hanuman Chalisa”

FILM SYNPOPSIS
“Shri Hanuman lives only to serve the God within us and to prepare us to live fully in the spirit”

The film provides a metaphorical visual meaning to the verses of an ancient spiritual composition that has been sung and chanted across the globe. Our understanding of the “divine” has various manifestations but its true nature lies within the realization of one-self.


Hanuman serves the highest expression of devotional values and is the purest embodiment seeking god. He is presented as a perfect and appropriate example of being a seeker, a sage, a das, a disciple, a ‘servant of greater man and cause’, a believer, a doer, a warrior and his greatness lies in using his strength for the service of others. The “Hanuman Chalisa” (a devotional Hindu song) again underlies this belief system; this thought process, this devotion.

The film tries to push the limits of our understanding of faith and spirituality. The mysticism and conceptual nature of divine response.



VISUAL/ARTISTIC CONCEPT
“Shri Hanuman Chalisa” is a film filled with spectacular and visually-attractive scenes of Hindu mythology God, Shri Hanuman. In its construction, particular narration and, most of all, in its innovative and technically-advanced stylization of the images based on 3D graphics, interpreting the Chalisa in a new way, by still keeping the story intact.


THE BELIEF & FAITH
“The Hanuman Chalisa, written in the early 17th Century by the great Indian poet Tulsidas, is a prayer that is chanted by millions of Hindus as an important part of their daily worship ritual.

The prayer, though in the praise of the beauty, strength, humility, faith and devotion of Lord Hanuman, is chanted as asking for blessings to overcome the hurdles of fear and all sorts of adversities in life.

The Hanuman Chalisa, is an eleven minute 3D film which visualizes the verses through captivating, extremely rich and expressive imagery, in a way to help us understand the meaning of the verses and feel the essence of the lyrics.
