Last evening was yet another realisation that movies make everything okay. When noone would actually want to go and watch Love Story 2050 – I was excited! (Yeah Like Nee puts it I like any movie!) I do not believe in reviews. Learnt it first in design school – where our prof once told us “Nothing is ever good or bad. It’s always the perception and I want to know yours!” These ideas got re-inforced in the film school. Everytime we came out from a screening or a screenplay reading session I realised that your review is always different than what someone else had to say and it’s always better to say “oh i think this section had something to offer to the texture of the story…” Always made classes fun and discussions more interesting. It was the best way to find out what somone else noticed while you missed out on because you were trying to look at some hot guy in the front seat…
And more importantly I always find some part in the production that can be appreciated. If nothing else I appreciate the people who stood next to those blazing lights while another 100 ran on the sets to make the movie happen. Infact I find it very funny when people talking about the film have themselves not seen the film! Now that’s a RE (rare evaluation) view!
So I go alone! And frankly I do not understand why you need someone to go with you to watch a movie? (Unless… ! 😉 its not the movie that you are interested in!)
Well so like any other day yesterday we went for Love Story 2050! There was no love, no story – YES there was a lot of excitement about 2050. And hats off for the visualisation and set creation. Once again Omung Kumar does it for me! Whatever it was I when I came out in the break.. I suddenly felt and wondered why people were walking and how come everything felt so old and 2008! Not kidding – it was funny but its true. While walking back to the carpark we passed through the gaming zone and Nish and I stood at one of the machines and tried to type in Mumbai 2050 – to see if we could be transported. But Alas! there was not Uncle YA! or else I would have been blogging with a lazer pen right now!
So if you have wishes or wants of moving ahead or going and correcting something in the past, here another film after Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind and Butterfly effect that helps you in getting transported off to a land of just pleasure, nostalgia and the a world of story telling! For those who have not seen the film.. it’s not about Harman or Priyanka, or that blue haired BOO… but about australia, the shops in the background, the shell houses and the amazing effects!
