Should not be called documentary, it's a video.
24 July 2018 | by Sexy-scientistSee all my reviews

To be called a documentary, you must only present facts/truth backed by evidence. It is lacking in this movie. Meaning of samadhi is tried to be explained using analogies, but it failed terribly. Most of the facts presented are distorted. Sometimes, they are plain wrong. Pacing of the voiceover is kept slow to give a pseudo sense that the things being told are deep and you will take time to understand. Video seemed pushed. It looked like they recorded the audio first and then searched the Internet for images/footage which would fit the context.
