DarlyVision Productions with Nitya Productions , on behalf of Narayana Gurukula, screened the film Guru Muni Being and Becoming — my first writing and directing feature — on the evening of 8th May 2022 at Bharat Bhavan , Kerala. The setting was this beautiful cultural institution, in the presence of Guru Muni himself, along with Swami Tyageeswaran , Sri Shaji . N. Karun, Dr.M.P.Abdussamad Samadani and Bharatanatyam performance by Dr. Rajashree Warrier celebrated the film’s world premiere. My gratitude goes to Guru Muni and the Swamis Tanmaya & Tyagweeswarn , Pravin , D. Vijay the crew and all the people involved. I cannot fully express through words my gratitude, it shall stay in my memory forever as a very happy experience.
We also premiered the film, Guru Muni-Being & Becoming the documentary drama film on values , principles and purpose in London, on the 15th October in 2022 at the Picture House Cinema, Stratford, the release was hosted by Don Biswas , a very talented stand up comedian, and the film was reviewed by Dr Toyeba Mushtaq , UK Asian Film Festival.

For me as Writer and Director, the premiere was a special homecoming. The Gurukula in Varkala means a special place for me. Pravin and I, with our guests presented his highly anticipated film to a full house , it also attracted much media attention and was televised on Amrita television news.
Guru Muni Being & Becoming review by KeralaKaumudi, review by Kerala Link U.K and UK Malayalee.
When Guru Muni read the script, he said afterwards that it was both symbolic and philosophical.
The film premiere's director of programming, D. Vijayan and Sugeetha .... while introducing said I should sit next to Sir Shaji Karun, the great film Director and Cinematographer and there I was casually chatting with him ; it was such a memorable occasion.
And with the diverse subject matter covered in Guru Muni Being and Becoming , there are so many lessons learned from its inception , so it’s tough to pinpoint just one lesson from Guru muni's life story and his relationships.
We tried to weave in philosophy into the Guru's life story, as I was reading the philosophy while making the film, having so many ideas about how his life parallels our life, ideas around free will and the world of Tao. I received comments from others after watching the film, good to know that they felt the same way too when they saw it.
