Story: The film is inspired by the early life of famous spiritual guru Osho Rajneesh and his quest for enlightenment.

Review: First things first, if you are intrigued by Pune's Osho ashram and are curious to know what happens inside, Rebellious Flower is not for you. Nor does it touch upon the controversies that the late guru was supposedly embroiled in.

The biopic strictly deals with Osho's early years (1938-1952), at the time when he was yet to become famous. This is his coming of age tale.

It gives you a glimpse of his growing up years with grandparents in Madhya Pradesh, his evolving psyche, aversion to conformity to norms and formation of independent philosophies. It traces his spiritual journey and revolves around his curious and inquisitive mind.

Hooda deserves to be appreciated for not making the film look like a propaganda vehicle. Fortunately, the guru is not presented as the MSG-esque superhero. Unhurried, peaceful and meditative, the treatment is therapeutic. However, you wish the film had delved deeper and would have been far more profound in its approach. The story seems preachy in places and execution, oversimplistic.

Considering, this is just the first part and next installments might cover the latter life of the guru, it's sincere if not satisfactory an effort.
