The Best Movie Ever...
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Great political and historical story of a king who won a war not for a personal gain but for a higher purpose of securing the land of Buddhism. You should not watch the movie for great filmy backgrounds or flowery songs but to understand the concept, relationship and philosophy of the war, Kind Gemunu and Buddhism. Most of women in the world asks and fight for same position or right position in the Mens World. But Sri Lanka has provided a great example from the history that women has the power of controlling and making things work even though they did not get highlighted. Viharamahadevi, the mother of Kind Gamini Abhaya is the one who directed her son by teaching Buddhism, history, the right way of living and all the qualities for him to become a Great King. She is the one who taught him what he is and what he should be proud of, which lacks in today's society. There won't be a 'King Gemunu' if Viharamahadevi had not groomed him. Our next generation might know about all the new phones and tech stuff but not their proud history based on Buddhist philosophy and of course about their religion. So THIS IS A MUST WATCH MOVIE for all age groups.
