awesome movie
23 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vikram Gandhi + Kumare = Great leader :)

watched it tonight and i gotta say I'm very amazed by Kumare. a great and moving picture that depicts the truth about all the fake or phony gurus or self claimed prophets they call them. i liked everything about the movie like how it first started as a joke and when it was closing it to an end it gave a really good teaching and Vikram Gandhi really did a great job on that. this movie is really a must see for everyone and especially those people who have indulged themselves with fake gurus and spent lots of money on them and in the end got nothing.

10/10 :)
