Siddhartha The Buddha...
31 January 2013 | by charaka-devpriyaSee all my reviews

"an attempt to chronicle the heart wrenching and mind challenging story that lies as the centerpiece of Buddhist faith"

Is the film heart-wrenching?? Most certainly yes. I was in tears almost all through the film....

Was the film mind challenging? Certain Dhamma truths came through by what Siddhartha said and what his guru taught him, and through the words of the three songs, its beautiful..

The film is a success, no doubt about that. Not only will cinema goers of the Buddhist faith appreciate the film and sink deep into it emotionally and religiously, but even film goers of other religions will benefit by seeing a very worthwhile film. It carries English sub titles and thus we presume, very creditably, it is prepared for international screening. We wish all luck to it at various film festivals.... Recommend it for Everybody!
