Critic Reviews for Mystic India
The film celebrates India's diversity and makes a strong and moving plea for unity among the peoples of the world.
The real hook is Neelkanth, who serves as a compelling guide and evolves into a great Hindu leader.
Utterly fills the screen with wondrous images of a place that few will ever have the chance to explore this fully in person.
Colorful, respectful and features cinematography (by Reed Smoot) so flat-out beautiful that you'll spend most of its 40 minutes with your mouth open.
At 45 minutes, you're left wanting more detail in the story, but with narration from Peter O'Toole, for whom the cliché about reading the phone book is true, it certainly never outstays its welcome, ending as an absorbing appetiser.
Audience Reviews for Mystic India
What a unrealistic picture of India! I thought the movie would be more like a National Geographic type documentary. Instead it perpetuated the old India myth with images of defiled temples and "colorful" festivals. It was one dimensional and and even less inspirational-despite the contrived unity message.
