The Impossible – Made Possible by Mankind (Story of what it is like to be Human)

Amazing cinematography and more amazing realization about what human is capable of. A very emotional but yet story of courage and compassion. It has got all the core qualities of a movie and yet it is so real and touching. I almost cried towards the end of the movie. It takes you through a journey and if you start living it then it will make you think how fortunate you are to live a good life and how courageous, compassionate and kind some people are to care for others even when they themselves need the most help to survive.

Maria Bennett (Naomi Watts) is at her best in this movie. From acting to makeup, everything seems to be perfect in the movie. She is a mother of three boys and staying at a resort with her husband, Henry (Ewan McGregorHenry), in Khao Lak,Thaliland for holidays when the tsunami hit the place and engulf everything on its way. It is a story of surviving through the odds of nature but still keeping in touch with humanity. It is a story of families where everyone is taking care of each other. It is a story of a boy, Tomas (Samuel Joslin) who is only 8 years old but takes the responsibility to look after his 6 years old brother, Simon (Oaklee Pendergast) when his father decided to go and search his mom and his elder brother.

I was thrilled and emotional while watching this movie. I was even more awake around 2 AM in the morning after finishing the movie. It was an odd time to watch a movie but once I started I could not stop. The best part was when the Naomi (mother) was injured and had found his eldest son Lucas (Tom Holland) but still was willing to help this little boy stuck under the bushes. Even when the chances of their own survival were very less, she did not lose the dignity to help other human being.  Lucas then in turn learned from her mother and obediently listened to her mother and helped this little boy and many other people in the hospital later. It is a story of selfless love, sacrifice, fear of losing someone close, courage to live through the worst, compassion for others in pain, strength to bear the physical pain and overcome all the odds to live for another day being human. I am in loss of words to describe what I felt after watching this movie. It is very moving and I would advice to watch it at least once. It has got some fierce and scary scene as happens in any natural disaster so it’s advisable that you be careful if small kids are with you while watching this movie.

It is a great example how mankind stand higher in the time of need. It is a reminder who we are and what we are supposed to live like. Not that we expect such disaster to happen to make us realise it but it is important that we do not surrender our core values when living this mundane life. And when time comes we should be ready to help the mankind. I salute the people in Red Cross and many such organizations who are helping the people survived through natural disaster and many other life threatening situations. It is our duty to help others as we are all part of one family and that is called mankind.

I don’t want to ruin the movie for you by disclosing more about the story. But I would recommend watching this flick as it takes us closer to ourselves and teaches us about mankind even more.

Movies – Way away from present

Movies are one of the great creative way to live in dream with our eyes open. I am not sure how much I might have to get used to of the fact that most of the times we are actually training our brain to live in a dream. Video games are another example for the same. I always loved movies but now I am in a stage where I am questioning my interest reason being that when watching a movie or anything in TV we are actually ignoring the present. Sitting in a couch and watching something recorded in past or live somewhere else that is not the reality around us. Our brain has to work to create that illusion that this is reality and we start imagining this new world around us whereas we stop focusing on whats actual present. 

Not just movies but there are heaps of ways we are actually training our brain to ignore the reality. And now as a result our brain is not focused any more, it keeps getting distracted from the present and either dwell on the past or future but present. I am not sure how much unlearning  will be needed to actually retrain my brain to focus on present and calm down a little bit.

Although we have been able to create a better world by our creativity – a window into the dreams that gives us sense of happiness, but we need to see the bigger picture now and create the beautiful reality around us. Stop living in a movie and create our life more interesting than a movie. Is it possible? May be to some extent. Why not we give it a try. I will try to do this as last time I watched a movie I was thinking more and focusing on movie less. So who knows what I might find out if I am successful in this new path.

But I would share it with you just like other things. 

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

MovieFiesta

At times we are so comfortable in our life that we assume that this is the only better way to live. The Hobbit changes that perception. Relating to the common audience, Bilbo Baggins (the Hobbit) proves that even when he is leading a happy and content life but still there is a possibility to explore. There is more to life then just being able to provide food and shelter to ourselves. Life is a journey and not a destination. We should not stop at any point otherwise we will be just the audience and not the actor in the movie of our lives. 

Time is the best example of how we should live as the clock keeps ticking no matter what. The same is for our body, we keep breathing as long as we are alive and the heart keep pumping. All the things that are alive become a witness for…

Life of Pie – Did you feel your life with Pie?

MovieFiesta

I want to discuss the movie ‘Life of Pie’ today with you all. How many people watched it? Please let me know what did you think about it. I have to watch it again to fully grasp everything as it was overwhelming after a long day at work and 45 degree of heat in summer. It was an escape from the heat and treat for hard work at office.

Movie is no-nonsense and also has got trace of humor in it. A lot of lessons are hidden in everything Pie was going through. I am listing some of the things I felt worth remembering and waiting for more from you.

1. We can tame any wild creature with patient, persistence and will power, even the inner animal in ourselves.

2. Fight or flight is the basic survival instinct of human.

3. Caring for others gives us the reason to survive…
