A must watch

Filmed across India at all the sites of the Beatles' visits -- Mumbai, New Delhi, Rishikesh and Dehradun -- and featuring an array of unseen photographs, footage and interviews uncovered in India during research on the project -- including unseen footage from a film shot at the ashram but never released and an interview with George Harrison recorded with All India Radio unheard since it was recorded in 1966 -- The Beatles In India tells how George, John, Paul and Ringo took a break from their lives as the biggest band in the world to travel to a remote Himalayan ashram in search of spiritual enlightenment and ended up unleashing an entirely new level of creativity from the band.

This movie seeks to answer two questions: How did.

The way for white album

This documentary explains how much impact the beatles got from india. And also the impact from the beatles to India. Interesting mixture with drug and mantra.

Interesting but not fascinating.

This documentary deals with the Beatles social and musical impact within India, as the country started to open up in the 60's. At the same time it explains and discusses the Beatles interest in Indian music, and their experience at a spiritual retreat run by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

It's mostly anecdotal stories told by people that were there with a few historical Beatles interviews sliced in, alongside a bit of historical footage from the actual location.

Some of the stories are told by people within the now dilapidated ruins of the retreat, which does add a level of sentiment to it, however despite briefly mentioning George Harrison's genuine love for India after being introduced to it by his friend Ravi Shankar, it never really shares in detail the Beatles view on India in their own words.

Interesting to watch, but could have delved a little deeper and offered up more.
