* WholePlotReference: American audiences might not immediately realize it, but the entire story is based on the ''Bhagavad Gita'', part of the {{Mahabharata}}. Just as Krishna helps Arjuna understand his place in the universe in the ''Bhagavad Gita'', so too does Bagger Vance help Junuh find peace in the film. The name Rannulf Junuh (R. Junuh) is a reference to Arjuna, while the name Bagger Vance sounds similar to ''bhagavan'', an epithet of Krishna.
