Decoding Deepak
A film by Gotham Chopra
[83 minutes]

Filmmaker and journalist Gotham Chopra embarks on a year-long roadtrip with his father Deepak Chopra to reconcile the spiritual icon with the real man known to his family. From devoted disciples ranging from Lady Gaga to lost souls searching for themselves in red rock deserts, Gotham paints a raw portrait of his dad that only a son can.

Ultimately what emerges is a picture of Deepak that while reminiscent of other popularized Indian gurus, is more dad than demigod. Full of flaws, foils, intelligence, and irreverence, the decoded Deepak uncovered by his son's honest scrutiny is a symbol of both a world searching for answers in the most unlikely places and a deeper plunge into the meaning of identity itself.
