Mumbai, 6th April-2006…Pray, there is immeasurable power in it! The last week of May brings divine blessings in the form of the blockbuster-hit film “Jai Santoshi Maa” when it premieres on Star Gold. A Vijay Sharma film starring- Anita Guha, Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Music composed by C. Arjun, lyrics by Pradeep, cinematography by Sudhendu Roy, story by R. Priyadarshini, produced by Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir; Jai Santoshi Maa broke all records at the box office. IN terms of return on investment, Jai Santoshi Maa remains the biggest hit ever at the Indian box office. And it is currently in the news for two reasons: the first ever satellite premiere of the movie (on Star Gold), and the fact that it is being remade.

There have been innumerable films, which have proved that films can have a big impact on society. But none of them can even come close to the monumental 1975 hit, ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’. The film almost brought to the limelight a new Goddess, leaving everlasting impression on the Indian masses.

The music by C. Arjun was highly popular, especially the song, "Main to aarti utaaru re, Santoshi Mata ki". The number became the nation’s new anthem and even today, it’s heard at all religious functions and ceremonies.

The film depicts hardships, tough times and sufferings can be overcome by being tolerant, patient, enduring pain and lastly – worshipping Goddess – “Santoshi Maa”.

And it can now be viewed by millions of Santoshi Maa bhakts, as well as everyone else, as it will be premiered on Star Gold this May.

Jap, Tap, Vrat- the three simple ways to attain Nirvana:

These are the simple rules of life in which Satyavati believed and followed religiously. Satyavati (Kanan Kaushal) –was a devoted wife and firm believer of “Santoshi Maa”. Her dedication was put to test; in many ways…But it was her immense faith in “Santoshi Maa” which helped her sail through high tide every time.

“Santoshi Maa” puts her true devotees to test:

“Santoshi Maa” has a unique way of bestowing blessings upon the deserving devotees: not until she has put them through an acid test.
