I am sure Osho knew about the plot.

I'm not so sure and it also depends on what you mean by "knew about". I just read through the Wiki article about this and it doesn't seem very clear on this point. It is a fact that he wasn't prosecuted for anything related to the incident.

I wonder how the film would pan out if it were about Trungpa and Shambhala in those days.
We would see a group who seemed to play out with militarism, there was sexual abusive activity, there was an adoring group of followers and a charismatic leader who liked dressing up.
Those times...70’s and 80’s dharma and eastern spirituality was still settling in and there were some very wacky things going on.
I feel sorry looking at the film for the townsfolk who were living in fear and also the naive followers who thought they were creating a brave new world.
It is so easy to manipulate people...especially on the spiritual path.
Yes, I can't wait til they start making documentaries about the Buddhists.

Throughout history religious icons have been seen by many as rambling lunatics.

I'm sure if we looked long enough we could find someone with nothing but good to say about Michael Roach too.
You wouldn't need to look long.
