Rudraksha - a main stream movie that delves into the ancient powerful mysteries of the Vedas, Rudrakshas and the Divine.
Happened to see "Rudraksha"...looks like the very first main stream Hindi movie that deals with the chakras, the power of Rudrakshas, powers of the divine - presented in a very non-descript commercialized fashion. Takes the mantra tantra mythology etc etc in a matter of fact manner, and runs with the plot - lots of shlokas and mantras are the background score and movie producers/directors seem to be followers of Lord Shiva. Story line is the battle of good over evil but lots of techno-glitz and special effects, something there for everyone, catered to the masses. Movie starts at a point that is connected to the Great Lanka War (Ramayana), seemingly inspired from Indiana Jones. Seeks to portray divinity in a very different light, in comparison to the traditional Indian movies...very differently to a point where it might not be acceptable to some.. I think this might very well lead to a resurgence of the populace to pursue the divine. (haven't finished watching it).
If you are mildly curious, might be worth a see.
