The T-shirt donned by the character Charvaka in a scene with the monk reads " Pastafarian ", an allusion to the followers of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But even when it gets talky, the actors own their dialogue.

Is the 'who' and 'what' crucial or the 'how' and 'why'? The film also pays homage to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster , the satirical religion started in reaction to the introduction of teaching creationism in schools. Aida Elkashef in a still American critic Pauline Kael described, in one of her essays, how taste for trash eventually inculcates taste for art.
