In Decoding Deepak, Deepak Chopra's son, Gotham, spends a year traveling with his father in an attempt to resolve the spiritual icon he is to the world with the man known to his family.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this doc at first - I guess I wanted to gain a greater understanding of the man that I personally have looked up to for years. OK, maybe I thought understanding Deepak would give me insight into the greater meaning of life. None of that was happening and I spent most of the film wondering what the point of it was and was I wasting my time.
Then it all became clear in the final scenes of the film - I had that "ah ha" moment. I won't spoil it for you. It's something you need to realize for yourself or the lesson is lost. That being said, I still give this doc a "might be worth watching" rating, but not a must see.
Even if you miss the life lesson, you at least get a closer look at the life of Deepak Chopra.
