Gotham spent a lifetime observing his father connect with the faithful, and he's skeptical of the wise teacher/eager student dynamic.
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.
Like its subject, the movie is not as calculating as it seems.
As much an exercise in self-help as it is a demystification of its title character.
Tthe film feels amateurish and leaves a lot to be desired as a documentary on one of the world's biggest spiritual icons.
Glossy tribute from a son to his eminent guru of a papa is not so different, even with all that spirituality, from recent film portraits of Katy Perry and Justin Bieber.
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.
