MY REVIEW
It is a good movie. I don’t like the ending but I found that book is based on that . Great acting by Rachel Weisz and she deserves the oscar. Still not clear on why he wanted to die. It is well taken and one of the movie which made me sit until it is over. Great work

MY REVIEW
One of the greatest movie I have seen. Now I understand why Steven Spielberg is a great director. It opens world of one of the greatest Nazi “Oscar Schindler”.Ralph Fiennes portrayal of Amon Göth is outstanding.he chemistry between Amon Goeth and Oskar Schindler is great, and the fact Schindler saved so many lives and put so much on the line to do it is moving beyond words, as is the inner goodness of both him and Itzhakt Stern.

My REVIEW
Movie of a legend. One of the greatest soul that lived in INDIA. His book “Autobiography of a Yogi” is spiritual bible. The movie is a good documentary. It is able to depict how great Yogananda was. It should be great if they have avoided Bikram Choudhury from this. Everything else looks great
