Movie Reviews

The New York Times - 7/10 by Anita GatesThe film’s storytelling is straightforward, almost standard-issue, but the story itself is compelling, as is the testimony of devotees.
Washington Post - 6/10 by Stephanie Merry[A] dreamy, entrancing and occasionally overstuffed documentary.
Los Angeles Times - 6/10 by Michael RechtshaffenFittingly enlightening, "Awake: The Life of Yogananda" is a vivid, elegantly assembled portrait of the savvy guru with the cherubic face and penetrating gaze who brought meditation to the West.
Chicago Reader - 6/10 by Drew HuntA voice-over narrator supplies some of Yogananda's more inspired passages, but the affected tone makes it all sound rather silly.
Sydney Morning Herald - 6/10 by Sandra HallAfter a while, all this serenity becomes soporific. It's one for the already enlightened.
Boston Globe - 5/10 by Peter KeoughThose looking for further enlightenment might want to pass on the feel-good cinematic hagiography known as Awake: The Life of Yogananda.
San Francisco Chronicle - 5/10 by David LewisThis is a film that works both for followers and for those interested in knowing what yoga is truly about. Hint: It’s not about six-pack abs.
San Diego Reader - 4/10 by Matthew LickonaIt's not quite hagiography, but it's almost hard not to get caught up in the film's admiring tone.
Arizona Republic - 4/10 by Kerry LengelUnfortunately, while the swami taught his disciples to explore the depths of their very souls, the film barely scratches the surface of his life and teachings.
User Review - 10/10 by hkdelhiAmazing, best movie/ documentary I have seen, Thanks God I have read Autobiography of a Yogi beforehand, the little boy with spot in between eyebrows, instructions to lay members, the growth of Self Realization Fellowship after the Great Guru's physical life are specially wonderful. The movie rightly conveys that although Great Guru has left the body but his consciousness is surly living and inspiring the followers / seekers of God from within, inspiring to seek bliss within, focus the mind at the point between the eyebrows.
