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

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.
