Total waste
25 March 2014 | by micropowersSee all my reviews

If its a real story of Siddhartha (Buddha) so i must say he was a total confused and a failure to fulfill the duties on his family and his people. He just crying all the time and do nothing . why so many animals happy on his birth even a tatta is more help full then this hopeless Siddhartha. Why great saint said Siddhartha will be the king of the world ? He just abandon his all responsibility and live peacefully alone somewhere,coward unworthy. i wasted my time on this movie. what were they thinking ! if some how they manage to make this imaginary movies for kids so they have to make some more creative then that .
