Goes Nowhere
2 June 2014 | by sarang-tatimatlaSee all my reviews

I watched this movie so I could learn about the spiritual guru and how he became who he became. I didn't read any of his books, and was looking forward to the movie to provide a general background of how the books came into being and how Deepak has garnered the spiritual following that he has now. The movie addresses none of these issues. Instead, it makes Deepak Chopra look sheepish.

It's as if Gotham wanted to vent out at his dad through this movie. There are scenes with Deepak snoring, scratching his bum and being publicly ridiculed by the media for some inadvertent comments he made. Deepak looked stressed out in every screen of the film, not a hallmark of the composure we've come to expect of the spiritual guru. I don't think Deepak was informed of the purpose of the film to start with, and I don't think Gotham ever had a purpose in mind while making it. Gotham glazes over the spiritual understanding of his father, and instead captures the inane quirks. The result is an absolutely pointless mockery of his father.

I wish another sensible set of filmmakers team up to capture the genius of Deepak Chopra. The beginning of the movie hints about Gotham being handed the keys to Deepak's empire, the thought of it now scares me.
