Another awesome (visual) treat from the India’s most lovable & talented director. A old story with slight changes for cinema, with a effort less script, having base in cinematography , music and actors…this could be the best thing I can say about Raavanan movie(Tamil).
Mani knows how to get best out of actors. Vikram lived as Veera (amazing acting), wat an performance. Vikram was the best selection for this character(veera). In the second half of the movie Aishwarya also shares the acting. Prithivi as a handsome cop did his job well, Fits best with the role. The major advantage for the movie is camera and music. Santosh Sivan , mani combination never failed. And hats off to RAHMAN for the songs and BG score. I could say the climax fighting scene in floating bridge was one among the best CG & VFX done in Indian film industry.
I wonder about the location comes around the film. A little bit faster first half of the movie would be a added advantage. Anyways , from beginning till end I loved the movie. Please watch the movie in theaters with good sound systems, sure it will be like a treat for ears. Every time Mani’s movie create a impact , even we are out of the theater, but his time I miss it. But nothing wrong in it, this is also a kind of narration. Gonna watch the hindi version also ( avid to see junior bachan’s performance) .
For sure Raavanan won’t be a hit in B and C theaters , will make some decent mark in A centers. But still for movie lovers, this will be a treat. For the new generation kids, a new way of story telling about RAMAYANAM (Ashokavanam episode).Happy watching Raavanan.
ps:- The above content was just my view on the Movie Ravanan and no intention to hurt or justify any one’s creation and talent.
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 🙂 .
