Hacksaw Ridge – One of the best war movie I have ever seen. Mel Gibson never disappointed with his directional skills. I’m a great fan of all his 4 movies and again for this movie now. The film will never disappoint you if you like war movies. That too this is based on a true story. (Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of Private Desmond Doss, an Army medic in WWII.)
Family of a army person, situations in their house during pre and post service in army, a true love, true patriotism of youngsters, trust and love in Lord, commitment, bravery, patience, emotions & Happiness, impact of a war (on and off field), what else do we need to get from a war movie ? This movie has everything in a right note and in a right tone. All the actors have justified their roles and CG works are excellent.
Hats off to this brave man Desmond Doss. when told he was a hero, Doss concludes, “The real heroes are buried over there.” Doss wanted to serve the nation by serving in army and he said, “While everyone else will be taking life I’ll be saving it.” & he did it.
Hope this movie will bag few Oscars this year. Lets see!!! All the best team !!!
ps (pre script):- this post’s title has a relation to the movie. And this post has no spoilers.
Seven Pounds : Again a highly demonstrated emotional movie from Will Smith. A movie from the director of “Pursuit of Happiness“. The movie deals with Ben Thomas (smith) wants to give a life time gift to seven strangers who really deserves it. He does all this things as atonement for the death of seven people in a car accident that he caused.The movie ends with a painful climax.
Seven Pounds - She gets the best of it..!
The feelings of a man who lost his most lovable things , has been beautifully portrayed. Will smith again rocks with his stupendous acting skills. He makes us feel his pain in all the scenes. Rosario Dawson(feel good beauty) plays the female lead and as one of the strangers in this movie. Wonderful performance by her. Till before the last ten minutes ..every one will be bit confused about smith’s activities all over the movie. The secrecy was maintained in a good way. The background score was really touching and penetrates into hearts. Hats off to Gabriele Muccino (director of this movie)…its really a directors movie.
I haven’t revealed the secrets(strengths) of this movie..watch it and feel it. Hope this movie will not be a commercial hit , since this has no commercial stuffs. But a wonderful movie for will smith fans and peoples who like watch emotional stuffs etc.,. Happy watching will smith …! Hope his next movie would be prequel of “I am Legend ” …The Fall of Manhattan and DC. Really it would be interesting to see..!

Slumdog Millionaire – “The feel good film of the Decade”. Story of a mumbai based slum boy about his survival and getting his childhood love back, simply about hope. Film based on the novel “Q & A” written by Vikas Swarup. As one of the US box office hit for year 2008, film bagged more international awards including Golden Globe award.
The film has been entirely shoot in India. Shows the another face of the India’s trading destination (Mumbai). The life in the mumbai slums and the surroundings were perfectly showcased. The movie portrays the life’s reality of a kid(jamal) born in slum and made orphaned due to the ram-allah fights,running towards survival and finally got into a little job (chai wala – tea boy) and achieving his love (Latika) (hope).It’s only the life’s lessons made him to achieve the hope.
Just wonder , how come Danny Boyle decided to take a movie which displays the reality of the Mumbai slum life which can create a mis perception on India and Mumbai among world audiences. Still the movie has its own positive impacts. Every country has its own ups & downs, so nothing bad in displaying the reality. May be after this movie, more Indian directors can take some foreign issues and display it in their own way to the world.
The winning Team......................................Jamal & his Hope
Hats off to Simon Beaufoy for his stupendous screen play. Without his screenplay the film would not have reached these much hearts. And notable efforts by Danny Boyle & Loveleen Tandan for their excellence in direction. Heart touching background scores and songs by India’s pride A.R.Rehman. Really he deserves the Golden Globe award for “Best original score”.
Predicted that, the movie will be nominated for academic awards, lets hope for the best and best wishes for A.R.Rehman for getting an Oscar award.
The movie goes along with the hidden term “Hope”, but ends with a note of “It’s written (fate)”. Anyways a good entertainer with some good performances and good music. Happy watching 🙂 .
” Tired of bein’ on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain.
Tired of not ever having me a buddy to be with, or tell me where I was coming from or going to, or why.
Mostly I’m tired of people being ugly to each other.
I’m tired of all the pain I feel and hear in the world everyday.
There’s too much of it. It’s like pieces of glass in my head all the time.
Can you understand …………..? ”
It’s a dialog spoken by “Michael Clarke Duncan” (John coffey) to Tom Hanks (Paul Edgecomb) from the movie “The Green Mile“. The story about the lives of guards on death row leading up to the execution of black man accused of child murder & rape, who has the power of faith healing. It’s a movie goes around some Miracle men John coffey. He has the power of feel and heal others problems. As a great fan of Tom Hanks I just loved his movie. Reall a nice movie to watch.
