The movie of an era, Sri Siddhartha Gautama is a biography of a sage from 2,600 years ago. An exquisite work of the Srilankan film industry. From drama to the recreation of the ancient and the allure of Buddhism, the movie has it all. Recommended for several awards, and it has won many across the globe.


Prince Siddhartha born into royal nobility was the son of the great warrior king Suddhodana. Many saints and scholars spoke of him to be a great soul who could bring a change to the world. He got married to a princess, and they have a son together.Soon he began to visit the real states outside his palace and saw the plight of the weak and the poor. Eventually, his desire for the worldly possessions began to diminish, and he chose to walk down the path of awakening. Why would a king give up all his kingship? Watch the movie to know his journey, his renunciation, and his teachings!


The arduous impact of the movie results from the efficient depiction of the life of Lord Buddha. It has an unparalleled embrace of itself. It flows smoothly and drives a desire to be grateful and considerate towards life. It is a great summation of technology, hard work, and vision.

Star performance

Gagan Malik, the Indian actor, delivers an excellent oeuvre. He won the best actor for the movie. The portrayal of Siddhartha concludes exceptionally. Anchal Singh and all the supporting actors performed extraordinarily. The movie stands legendary because of all their efforts.

What’s there?

• The direction is remarkable.

• The film holds a memoir for the hard work, trivialities and motivation put together to create the classic.

• It has a brilliant insight into the history, for it has fashioned its costumes out of knots and drapes.

What’s not there?

• The cinematography could have been better.

• The chemistry between the lead actors seems to be missing.


A movie that holds you, and creates an aura of its own. It is the one to be kept in a ‘to watch' list, and you will praise it for its gist.
