Movies of the week
Kumare is the sort of movie that viewers come across in a decade. It’s innovation at its very best with the protagonist undertaking the most risky adventure of his lifetime, but it’s not an adventure only for the sake of it- it’s an effort to project the human tendency to gradually fall into the clutches of blind faith.The protagonist deliberately takes on the title of a guru and tries to muster up a large population of followers with his convincing impersonation. He succeeds in his aim, and finally decides that time is ripe to come out with the truth and reveal his true self to his devotees.
Are his followers, riding high on the promise he delivers with his guru-like presence, about to be brought from the fantasy land into the ground reality?
I like the premise, but it is a representation of the universal truth? Is there a way to show the difference between faith and blind faith?
I have my own spiritual experiences to show that our journey towards our real selves initiates with blind faith and ends up at its other extreme- faith. However, it happens when we are honest in our efforts to explore our spiritual side. It’s the effort from the heart that counts and it’s immaterial whether you are following a fake or a real guru.
Anyway, Kumare is a must watch for those, who lead lives from the realm of spirituality
