“Nareetva Darshan”(of 13 Episodes) with its mind-boggling tagline: ‘Nari ko Nahin…Nareetva ko Dekhiye…ek Vaicharik Kranti…(Let’s Look Beyond Feminine…Towards Femininity in its Supremacy…An Ideological Revolution…) is the Winner of the ‘Best Concept’ National Award in the 4th Gujarat National film Festival 2014.
This inspirational film is conceptualized and Directed by Brahma Kumari Dr. Sunita Didi Chandak (Ph.D.) of Surat, who has reported that Brahma Kumaris believe that the history of a woman is the history of mankind. The dignity of a woman is the dignity of our nation, and of our world!
This heart touching film is a mirror that reflects the innate Powers of a Woman. This film equally resonates with the male population as ‘Femininity’ (Nareetva) is found in males too and so we address males as “Gentle” Men.
