Journalist and filmmaker Gotham Chopra spends a year traveling the world decoding his father Deepak Chopra, resolving the spiritual icon he is to the world vs. the real man known to his family. What starts as an intimate biopic becomes a deeper plunge into the meaning of identity itself.Written by
Why does an adult child want to play the blame game, and use Deepak Chopra's celebrity status to put the attention on himself? He is an adult now, and I am not interested in a totally subjective documentary that pours anger and rage on Deepak Chopra, his father, who might have been more detached than he should have been. We bring our children into the world, and we do the best we can. I suggest that his son read Kahil Gibran's "On Children." It was embarrassing to see a talented artist expend his talents and energy, and air the family laundry. I did not see Gotham Chopra telling the truth. I saw a privileged young man who is spoiled and dumping on his dad. Gotham needs to focus on himself as an artist, and the abundance in his life. We are all human and have faults, and parents do the best that they can do based on their past. This film did not interest me. It may interest an audience who wants the latest dirt on a celebrity. I am not interested in gossip on Deepak Chopra. Gotham Chopra has to stop living through his dad. He used his art as a vendetta against his dad. If Gotham chose to be The Prodigal Son that was his choice and had nothing to do with what his father did to him. From a Recovered Adult Child of Alcoholics
