Decoding Deepak: A Son's Peek Inside a Legend

Written by Stacy Schneider for Huffington Post


The documentary film Decoding Deepak, released early October, is a refreshing, insider's look at Deepak Chopra, the international spiritual teacher and prolific author. What makes the film fresh is that his son, Gotham Chopra, made it without any inhibitions about portraying his iconic dad in the most honest light possible. Decoding Deepak is the story of a unique man with a brilliant mind and enormous empire, who in many ways, is just like everyone else.


The modern documentary, well-received at the Hamptons Film Festival, paints a compelling portrait of the guru revered for his lessons on achieving inner-peace and mind-body wellness, and for being a friend of Oprah. The son lets you inside the minutia of Deepak's daily life, and it is through this exploration of the mundane that we get to learn who the man is behind the legend. Gotham narrates with irony, offering unbridled commentary on his father's behaviors, lime light addiction and inter-familial relationships. The result is humorous and endearing. Even a mundane trip to Starbucks by the man whose books have sold upwards of 20 million copies, is an interesting view through the looking glass of one of the world's most admired people.

Thanks for debunking a lot of previous beliefs & fears that I had. The 1st time I watched you was on Tavis Smiley talking about \'Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence\'. U said \"Thank God for death\". That without death we would be living mummies in a fossilized universe. U explained this in a way that blew my mind & I went & got ur book immediately. In a way, you became my guru. Can\'t wait to see this movie
