The film is a unique historical chronicle of the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that started more than half a century ago.

Rare archival footage, photographs, eye-witness accounts and expert comments along with location shoots across India to bring alive the fascinating journey of George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr from their high octane celebrity lives in the West to a remote Himalayan ashram in search of spiritual bliss that inspires an unprecedented burst of creative songwriting.

Brought to you by BritBox, the brainchild of producer Reynold D’Silva, the film is inspired by director Ajoy Bose’s book “Across The Universe – The Beatles In India” (Penguin Random House, 2018). The UK premiere of the film took place on June 6, 2021 at the British Film Institute (BFI) on the closing night of the UK Asian Film Festival 2021. It won two awards: “Best Film Audience Choice” and “Best Music.”
