Song lyrics truly are the poetry that inspire us, keep us sane, delights us, energizes us, empathizes with out problem and comforts us in our real life blessings and struggles. Music has the power to make us feel… that we’re not alone. Blinded By The Light is a very unique story, that comes from a place of real-life inspiration and you can own it on DVD now!
The film tells the story of Javed (Viveik Kalra), a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in the town of Luton, England, in 1987. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father (Kulvinder Ghir). But when a classmate (Aaron Phagura) introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers a cathartic outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to find the courage to express himself in his own unique voice.
If song lyrics ever spoke to you, in your youth, you’ll love this film. If you understand that the world we live in can be cruel and harsh, and yet you can still find the encouragement to get through, you’ll love this film. It’s human, the message here.
