My interest has always been into sci-fi movies, movies made for younger audience or the animated ones (mainly, English). Of late, I watched few movies not belonging to these realms and have liked them.
Swades portrayed a true picture of rural India. Sharukh’s acting made the movie even more memorable. The scene which made me cry was the scene in which Sharukh is sent to collect the rent from the farmer. What a scene!! even though the farmer and his family have nothing to eat, the farmer makes sure the guests dont starve…. caste system plays its usual role in making this farmer’s life miserable.. Just because he is from a lower caste, the upper caste people make sure that he is not provided with any water for his crops.. thereby, he is doomed to poverty.
On one side of the country, IT industry and the economy is growing so fast and on the other side, there are so many villages without electricity and water supply.. More interest and revenue should be put into improving such villages instead of wasting money trying to improve the beauty of the so-called major cities.
Not just this scene, the whole movie appealed to my heart 🙂
Rang De Basanti was one more good movie. Hats off to the director.. One scene was too good where he compares the current politicians to the Britishers and today’s scenario to the Jalianwala Bagh massacre..
But, Shaheed has always been my all time favourite patriotic movie on Bhagat Singh.. Of all the Bhagat Singh movies made till date, this is one movie whose script is close to the reality..and Manoj Kumar’s acting is awesome…even Prem Chopra looks good in a positive role…. What tortures Bhagat Singh undergoes through! He is stripped and made to lie on ice blocks and then is beaten up badly…He and his followers go on a hunger strike in the prison.. Many people die of hunger and the rest survive only with water.. Then the British officer devises a plan to break their fast and sends milk instead of water.. Now, they are deprived of water as well.. god! these people dont even drink water (so nothing gets into their mouth, not even water) and fight for injustice..
So many people gave their lives to bring independence to this country and what is the use? Today, the situation is even more worse than it was 100 years back..
My Autograph was a very realistic movie.. I could relate to the characters and the plot of the movie.. it was really touching.. The dialogues were appropriate.. This was the first sudeep movie I ever watched! It was worth watching.
