The film ‘Mother Teresa and Me’ is the story of three extraordinary women whose lives are intertwined with hope, compassion and love. The story of the film revolves around Mother Teresa. The film follows Mother Teresa’s early years in India, in the mid-1940s, when she was trying to help the poor, sick and dying in Kolkata (Calcutta). The film is about love and compassion inspired by the life of Mother Teresa. Along with this, it was also shown how much impact his ideas have had on the society.
The film has been shot in Kolkata and London. The film depicts the period in Kolkata (Calcutta) in the year 1940 when Mother Teresa started her work there. The art director of the film has created the era well and cinematographer Keiko Nakahara has captured every scene of the film equally beautifully. The film is based on real events, so the director has taken care that nothing is pushed in the name of freedom in cinema. However, some boring scenes could have been removed if the length of the film was 15 minutes shorter. In this matter, the editor of the film has a little mistake. Music by Peter Scherer, Ennick Roddy, Walter Maier and Laurence Crevoisier is notable. Kavita is shown as a music lover in the film so there was scope for improvisation in the music.
