There is precious little table-turning or real insight in "Decoding Deepak" - unless uncovering a passion for Starbucks and a preference for upscale hotels counts as takedown material.

"Decoding" ultimately becomes Gotham's gentle tribute to Dad, who shall probably provide handsomely for his heirs. It is also a tacit endorsement of Chopra Inc.

While Decoding offers some tantalizing insights into the celebrity guru, the movie, at its core, is playing out daddy issues as the filmmaker wonders aloud about whether his dad has gotten too big for his britches.

As much an exercise in self-help as it is a demystification of its title character.

A documentary following Deepak Chopra, a fireball of energy, creativity and spiritual vision, on the road for a year, filmed by his son.

Unlike his father, Gotham Chopra is more interested in his own latent daddy issues than with questions of cosmic import.
