This is 2015 film from Hong Kong directed by Li Guohui which relates the traditional story of the Buddha’s birth, childhood, awakening and teaching career up and till his parinirvāṇa, with Lu Liangwei in the title role.
The story includes many episodes familiar from the story, though occasionally they are retold in a somewhat altered form, and include episodes from the lives of the disciples also, with Devadatta’s story taking the most time.
The main characters are all played by Chinese actors and actresses, with only some extras played by Indians themselves, and the few teachings that are included all come from the Mahayana tradition.
