Avatar Movie : My take on it…

I just watched the Avatar Movie this afternoon around 3.30pm show in Regal 3D-IMAX in Dublin/CA. Its almost 2 hours 40 min movie and well thought out hi-fi science fiction.

Nice aspects of Movie :

  • The graphics work is AWESOME! All the scenes in the movie looked very REAL.
  • I heard the complete Navi clan, especially Navi female (Neytiri) is completely computer generated. That is a complete brilliant work done by Technology/Graphics.
  • The Pandora’s hanging Mountains, Dragons, The Giant Tree, Mountain Banshee/Ikran, Rhinoceros like, Viperwolf, beautiful creatures in jungle are wonderful creatures that felt life like.

What could have been better :

  • The fight machines/Amplified Mobility Platform in the movie seems to be replica of Matrix Movie which we have seen in Xion.
  • The initial screen based computer and navigation seems to be borrowed from Minority Report/Matrix.
  • Some of the scenes like mountains and terrains are similar to Lord of The Rings/Harry Porter.
  • The “Unobtanium” metal –  the reason why humans are on Pandora does not seem to contain any importance. This is a little silly concept and did not gel well with the rest of screen play.
  • The first 30 minutes seems to be dragging and slow.

All in all, it is a disappointment for a James Cameron Movie. Perhaps the expectations are too high. What i saw was a combination of different movies and shortage of originality for the Avatar.


Arya2 movie with wrong messages!

I just watched the movie today! I have been a great fan of Allu Arjun and his story line. This movie Arya2 came to me as a disappointment. Allu’s movies are always a great joy to watch and they have lot of hidden fun. Following are the impressions i got.

  • This character of Allu Arjun gave me an impression of Psycho or Mentally Disturbed person in the Society.
  • This movie rather acts as a good advertisement for Cigarettes. I particularly did not like this as we all are struggling to eradicate smoking and this guy makes one of the main theme as Cigarette.
  • Our society has a great respect for Marriage. This movie made marriage as a “Fun/Humorous” stuff. What non-sense is this getting married and then saying that i married for my Friend ?
  • What stupidity is the wife exchange program ? We have seen many films in Telugu and Hindi which are Triangular. But none of them are about exchange after marriage. At least , we don’t want to promote this in Movies.
  • Overacting by Allu Arjun or Perhaps bad Screen play. I am not sure about this. But there are several scenes where the dialogs should have been cut short or modified.
  • What does Director want to project when Arya2 takes sleeping tables towards the end of the story. Is there any sort of ethical self-examination done by the director/script writer ?

In the end, this movie just projects Allu Arjun as a COMPLETE Psycho and mentally imbalanced person and does not ever project the friendship and romantic part. I am sure, no one wants such a FRIENDSHIP and such a LOVER.

Social Responsibility in the Telugu Movie Industry

I have to write this in “reaction” to a movie release review that i saw in “Telugu Maa TV”. There is a new movie that is getting release shortly by name “9th class“. I have no idea if this would be a sequel to the “10th Class” movie. The story like goes between two “KIDS” in the school and they falling in so called “LOVE”.

What are all these Directors and Producers taking the people to ? What “message” do they want to spread across the people ? Once kids watch these movies they inherently have a kind of “Cool” feeling that it is normal to fall in love at that age and it is OK. Producers/Directors/Script Writers may say that they are only showing whats happening in some cities/towns. But by making a “small” incident a movie, we are basically trying to “Publicize” this event and unfortunately movies are “Colorful and Cool”. Unfortunately real life is no way near to what they show in movies. Kids don’t have the discretion power to know what is right and what is wrong, they only care about what is “Cool”.

In the last few years all the movies have a famous dialog “Lepukupota” by Hero. A trend has started that it is Heroism to oppose parents and flee to other places, get married. Everyone has their own reason and movies portray this as a big thing. Unconsciously movies are dragging adults/kids away from their natural lives and are creating a false pride and false confidence.

If you feel these kind of movies should be avoided, please do a negative publicity about these movies. Ask your friends and family not to watch them and spread this word. Discourage your kids to watch these kind of movies. What you think as “cool nice family entertainment movie is going to form a NEGATIVE impression in your kids mind”.

P.S. Of course, parents themselves should have some values before they talk to their kids about this.
