If you've ever experienced pompous religion, and love satire, this is your movie!
12 July 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It has been said that the Indian people don't appreciate American satire, but I beg to differ when it comes to "The Proverb." I just found this movie in video store in Calcutta In India, we have a multitude of religions (Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, to name just a few). We see religiosity in most of these. If you've ever experienced pompous religion, and love satire, this is your movie! Those who would slam it probably do not get it and that's fine but those of us who do will see it multiple times. This movie does for religion what "This Is Spinal Tap" did for musicians. That means it may not be a movie for everyone but for those chosen ones, it means getting together with friends a couple of times a year to enjoy a classic and quote it constantly on those other 363 days when they're not watching it! If you find religion funny, then I need you to go ahead and check out this movie, uh that would be great. I rated it a 10 and it is by far the best movie I've seen all year.
