I am having a movie fiesta going on.Thanks to this huge LCD in my room in Suwon ‘s(suburb of Seoul) guest house , I am indulging in movies like never before.I remember when I bought laptop back in 2007,my preference was not a sleek, light weight model, but the one with a good screen size , so it actually turned out a brick-heavy one because of my inclination.
So,in chronological order I had a taste of these movies :
Avatar : great, because I finally got to know how a 3-D movie feels like( yes , it was my first 3D movie).I was doing on and off game with my 3-D glasses to remind myself to appreciate the 3-D ness of movie.The bad part was subtitles were in Korean(it was a part of team outing with Suwon’s team).I loved everything bluey bluey ,the flying good spirits,resplendent colours, animation quality ,location . Everything was so exotic, that when critics cribbed about storyline,I was like give him a break , people.Yes, it is Man vs Machines/Man vs Aliens always, but this was a beautiful one , and the message about embracing nature was great.
Seven Pounds : it was heart rendering to see Will Smith in so much pain, he is my hot-favs like.Boy, he made me hate jelly fishes.It was heavy stuff for me , I was sobbing by the end of the movie.But I loved the part where he comes out of blue and transforms people’s lives.Though “heavy” is the word.
Rocket Singh :Such a simple and effective message in such a far fetched movie..one would love the casting part in start, it captures a middle class household’s most trivial and common things in a colorful scape.Prem Chopra,this the first time in his entire career, I liked him in some role ( he should be happy for that), the dialogues are great and catchy. Ranbeer has again shown his great acting skills -good that he didn’t try fiddling with Punjabi -it could have ruined the whole thing.The characters are well thought out , especially the team of rocket Sales-is amazing.The entire cast is great.Except a few basic facts which could have made the story feel like real,everything is perfect and in place.All while the movie,to me it felt like they are selling vacuum cleaners rather than computers; the way they sold.May be because it had more to do with hardware rather than software ,so.
Twilight 1 and 2 : I loooove teenage romance.Especially the protective boyfriends (who doesn’t?), I loved both the parts.
Three Idiots : good humour, good message , but again not very realistic setting. And why does Amir has to concentrate all the movie around him? Loved Chatur’s speech.
Kung fu Panda : Must watch .I love the East Asian touch to English speaking animation characters and swift Kungfu moves – one good thing is – it does not belong to one animal class, so you can see a tortoise , a panda, a tiger,an insect, a snake and a birdie too.Hats off, to the nice combination it creates and ofcourse the adorable Panda learning Kung-Fooo.
