Kumaré (2011) tells the story of “KUMARE”, a wise guru from the East and his indoctrinated followers in the West. Kumaré, however, is NOT real! He’s the alter ego of American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi who impersonated the spiritual leader for the sake of a social experiment designed to challenge one of the most widely accepted taboos: that only a tiny 1% can connect the rest of the world to a higher power. Concealing his true identity from everyone he meets, Kumaré forges profound and spiritual connections with people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram, the filmmaker, is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity, Kumaré unveils his true identity to a core group of disciples who are knee-deep in personal transformation. Will they accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? Kumare, at once playful and profound, is an insightful look at faith and belief The film received fair reviews upon release. Many movie reviewers criticized its deception as immoral, but partially forgave the film maker for realizing that the experiment had grown out of his control. Listen to see just how enlightened we were, as well as our take on the Top 3 Movie Characters who weren’t who they said they were.
