A wonderful redemption story of a man from humble beginnings who rises in fame and notoriety, leaving his values, family, and honorable business by the wayside. After a short prison term, he gets a second chance when he is mistaken as a swami. Although his new role begins as a charade, a turn of events pushes him to new heights of sincerity and selflessness.
