Inception was a brilliant movie. Someone told me its like Matrix.. I was a bit disappointed as i was really looking forward to it. And Matrix is one movie i never enjoyed.. my non comprehension had a big role to play in it think. The machines and the things attached to the head and the million humans in goo was all gross to my mind ..
So when I went for Inception... I had decided I will focus on the movie so that I can comprehend it at least.. to decide if I like it or not. And focus I did... I understood it. :) My big achievement of the day. In fact, I saw updates on FB (other colleagues at work reporting the same) stating people hadnt understood it.. so i immediately felt happier :))
So anyway.. as i pass lightly over this feat (couldnt resist that).. It was a brilliant movie.. A MUST MUST MUST watch for everyone. So this movie is about dreams and reality.. can leave one utterly confused if one doesnt keep track of it!!! And you are in this maze of dreams and reality.. reality and dreams.. dreams .. more dreams.. reality dreams, dreams.... till you you dont know where exactly you are.. and you begin to question everything else you have watched.. was it...? Or was it...?
Well, I dont want to make this into a spoiler..so I will leave it at that!!
A question... did the totem spin even earlier through the movie? I cant seem to remember. :)
Rating 4.5 /5 for sure. Leonardo does it again!!! How can a movie with Leo in it not be good. Impossible, I say. The other characters were great as well.. I dont know who they are .. Arthur .. so was Eames.. Saito.. Yusuf..Ariadne.. All of them.
After an hour's break, we went into the theatre again.. this time for Tere Bin Laden.. I thought it would be a laugh riot.. dont get me wrong.. it was funny.. but somewhere whatever trailers I saw I felt it would be a laugh a minute comedy.. a la Khosla ka Ghosla.. But it was not..
But the way some people were laughing.. literally rolling about in the aisles.. i didnt think it was that hilarious
It is a good movie actually... a satire.. the desperate attempt to reach America somehow.. and a farzi video of Bin Laden lookalike to get there... lots of running around in the jungle and running circles around everyone.. with the americans trying bomb the lookalike.... makes for good timepass..
Some laughs were zabardasti ka.. Quite a decent effort though.. a different type of a movie!! Worth a one time watch for sure.
Of course the back to back experience is fun.. one movie ends and you dont need to feel sad as you have one more to look forward to :)
