‘Wipe the trouble away and let the beauty in’ is the mantra behind the high energy thriller ‘Vipaka’. An earnest life-coach/author, Thomas Carter, is mysteriously abducted by a deranged client, Angel Sanchez, who delves into Carters' teachings and uses his spiritual messages of Karma - action and reaction ‘Vipaka’, against him to terrorize him and his family for their past sins.
Thomas Carter did not have the best track record per say, however, he has changed his ways and has decided to help others in doing the same. Sanchez approaches him for help to overcome the death of his mother and things head for the worst. Being held accountable in more ways than one, Sanchez brings in Carters’ wife and brother to suffer alongside of him and makes sure that everyone comes clean if they want any chance of remaining alive.
‘Vipaka’ stars: Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Mike Epps, Sanaa Lathan, Nicole Ari Parker, Ariana Neal. Directed and story by Phillipe Caland, screenplay by Shintaro Shimosawa, and Produced by Forest Whitaker, Philippe Caland, Nina Yang, ‘Vipaka’ is definitely worth seeing.
