G-10: Thanks :)
B.H.Harsh : You have the essence of the film right in these two comments. To Rome With Love is a dialogue heavy, scenic, breezy film. There isn't much one can say about it :)
Jake - :)
Guddu - Wow you really made my day too :)
Jake - Isn't it really good? :)
Guddu -I appreciate your opinions, no really I do :) The more people talk about the film, the better!
Pradeep - What you said.Thanks, though. Heehee :)
Subhashish - How inspiring :)
Murtaza - Thank you! As I said, flaws apart, I feel this is the finale that the trilogy NEEDED, and not necessarily one that us as audiences wanted.
Guddu - I suggest you watch the first two films, (stay away from ALL reviews and anything written about any of the films henceforth) and then go see TDKR. Once you've done that, let me know how you like it, and then proceed to read my review again. We can then swap opinions :)
Jake - Press screening, organized for reviewers :) Book your tickets ASAP! Last I heard they're all sold out for the weekend. And as you can read above, you must watch TDKR at the first chance you get!
Thanks, Vikram :)
I guess I was trying to compare the Epic quality both films have for the generation they were released in :)
Yup, I am! I was trying to bring in some sarcasm :) Clearly I need lessons in that, haha!
Thanks! I'm yet to see 'Wrecked', but 127 Hours is quite different from this one. Buried is really just about Renold's pursuit to escape. There is no metaphor, and no layer to it :) It's a gripping watch!
I know, right? Surprisingly violent - it was so brilliantly built up :)
Yaaaay! Happy Birthday Wogma!
@Ilovebooks: I'm assuming you have read The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd (because if you haven't your comment stands invalid), and anybody who has read the book will agree that as a narrative structure it defies the very norms of story-telling and novel writing.
That, my friend, is a complex piece of literature, hence the tag.
I would comment further but that would give away the beauty of the book.
I would assume that you understand the workings of story-telling and the role of a narrator? Keeping that in mind, I feel the structure of the novel is complex and avant garde. Maybe we can have a detailed conversation about that later, where I can openly tell you what I mean incase you are confused.
Excitement apart, don't you think the posters look uncannily like Lagaan? 11-12 people standing in a line together, as if revolting! The flavour is the same, the title is just creepily lending to this thought of mine. Lagaan could've have been called that.
When I first saw the poster, I was like, "Who's this ape trying to make a Lagaan?" and then I saw the director's name. Gulp. Maybe it's just me. But for my sake I hope there's a different in the treatment.
