User Reviews: Hats off to Robert Redford.

Has anybody noticed or is it just me… that this movie is based on the Hindu religious epic: the Bhagwad geeta.

Robert has even retained the same names… "bagger vans" pronounced "Bhagwans"… meaning God in Hinduism…. and in this case… specifically.. lord Krishna…

and the main character…. "Rannulph Junuh".. pronounced "Arjuna".. meaning The warrior Arjuna… in the geeta…

the Hindu mythology reads such: Arjuna does not have the will to fight his own brothers in a dispute over a kingdom.. though he is a supreme archer.. he has lost the will to fight….Krishna… advises him over i think 14 days the logic of war and why he has to fight and make things right..

the movie: rannulph has lost his swing or the will to play golf… though being highly talented… bager vans aka god… teaches rannulph the meaning of golf and helps him find his calling and rest as they say is history…

wow… never knew mr. redford was so influenced by Hinduism…

good movie.. very well shot…

and a southern movie to boot.. too good.
