Vintage movie clip — Nimai of Nadia

A 1959 black and white dramatization of the early life of history's most revolutionary divine mystic — "Nimai of Nadia."

When Lord Chaitanya was a child, he was called Nimai, as shown on a clip from this vintage Bengali movie about His young life.

Rumor has it that the producers of this rare 1959 black and white film required the actor playing the title role (the adult Nimai) to observe strict celibacy (brahmacharya) for 2 years prior to the making of this film.

To view the whole movie, you can purchase a copy of this video at the Krishna.com Store.
