Summary
Kumar<U+00da> is an enlightened guru from the East who builds a following of disciples in the West. But Kumar<U+00da> is not real. He is an American filmmaker named Vikram Gandhi, who has transformed himself into Kumar<U+00da> as the centerpiece of a social experiment designed to explore and test one of the world's most sacred taboos.Concealing his true identity from all he meets, Kumar<U+00da> forges profound, spiritual connections with real people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram the filmmaker is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity he reveals his greatest teaching: his true self. A playful yet genuine and insightful look at belief and spirituality, the film crosses a line few have dared to cross, that from illusion comes truth
