This is an extraordinary tale from over 2600 years ago, of a Prince who is endowed with everything he needs and more. Luxury, palaces and all hearts desires, are provided to him by his father, a warrior King of the kingdom of Sakya. The story unfolds dramatically with the Prince leaving all his luxuries and possessions as well as his new born son and loving wife, caring parents, to an unknown journey of finding the end to human sorrow and suffering.Written by
The movie, Sri Siddartha Gautama plots the life of prince Siddartha, from the birth up to the time he left aside all worldly comfort and goes in search of eternal truth. Hence it's s delicate plot handled by the movie, and I assume it's successful providing the viewer a great cinematic experience within the 2 hrs of run time.
The role of prince Siddartha is acted by North Indian actor Gagan Malik, which I think is was quite remarkable in all aspects.
It's high time in Sri Lankan cinema that we had anything close to a great cinematic experience compared to this in recent past. Therefore, I definitely recommend this movie to everyone.
