Storyline

11-year old Neelkanth has long dreamed of being a Yogi, and in the darkness of the rainy evening of June 29, 1792 he secretly leaves his family behind in the Northern India city of Ayodhya by plunging himself into the Saryu river at flood stage. Landing downstream, he begins a 7 year barefoot trek that will cover 8,000 miles through much of India. The young Yogi impresses everyone he meets, providing spiritual inspiration, but declines offers to remain in the villages he visits. He tames a fearsome lion terrorizing one village. Heading into the Himalayas barefoot, and wearing little clothing, he survives freezing temperatures using Yoga and meditation. He crosses a pass at 18,000 feet and treks through the deepest gorge in the world before transversing rain forests, jungles and following coastlines. At Jagannath Puri he is invited by the king to take part in the annual Rath Yatra (Festival of Chariots). Finally he ends his journey in the village Loj in Gujarat where the great teacher ...

Great Film - must see
24 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

Great film, its a must see for everyone. Puts together a snapshot of India and its culture in less than an hour, with the endearing story of Neelkanth - a child yogi who traveled across India on foot. Children and adults will all enjoy this film, and learn from it. The only limitation is that since its in 70mm, only Imax and such theaters will show it, so everyone won't be able to see it in their city. But the upside is that only a large canvas does justice to this film and country - with the colors and lights of India, interwoven by Neelkanth's travels, it deserves a huge 70mm screen. The scene of the chariot festival with thousands of people celebrating is breathtaking.
