Ice Age 3: Age of Dinosaurs

Simply the most beautiful animation film i have seen in recent times. It is a story about a group of animals living in ice age. An elephant couple is about to give birth to a baby elephant. The other animals see it as the moment to departure for them. A growing tiger eager to catch up some adventure in his ending life. Sid looking for new friends. And ‘The Buck’ fearless in age of dinosaurs settling even with Rudy the giant white dinosaur.

I have to say this that the director, writer and other artist who worked in animation film are brilliant people. They have brought the common life so easily through these mammals on a 3D screen. The eyes of these mammals look as alive as of a real living creature.
The Buck is the most interesting character in the film. He is adventurous, courageous, xenophilic, and revengeful towards Rudy. Why did Buck take the mammals to the darker area of dinosaurs world? Certainly not for saving Sid. Is it for adventure? Is it for revenge? He may live in a hostile animal world but he is one of those outlawed who belong to Ice Age.

Ghajini

Ghajini is the Bollywood version of Memento. Amir Khan plays Sanjay Singhania who is a rich entrepreneur who comes to India with a dream to make himself as the cellular baron of India. Here he met a young vibrant girl named Kalpana, played by Asin. Kalpana unknowingly fumes the story that she is the gal friend of Sanjay Singhania. This is how this Bollywood story starts. Ghajini a criminal socialite kills Kalpana and cripples Sanjay of short term memory loss. The movie revolves around how Sanjay Singhania takes revenge of his gal friend’s murder helped by a young medical student Sunita.

Amir Khan once again did an excellent job. He worked really hard to shape himself up to become macho man. The Bollywood newcomer Asin also did perfect job by bringing mirth and love to the story. The story is very sound in both scientific sense and keeping the Bollywood factor of super powerful protagonist. Overall movie is a good entertainer with good songs.

3 Idiots

3 Idiots is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel Five point someone. It’s a movie about three friends who meet at an elite Delhi engineering college. The movie is an invigorating account of Indian college life. Farhan Qureshi played by Madhavan, belongs to a middle class family, who wants to be a wildlife photographer but ends up becoming an engineer. Another tragedy is Raju Rastogi played by Sharman Joshi. He is from a poor family of teacher mother, postmaster paralyzed father and an unmarried young sister. He lives his life full of fear of failing. Rancho or Rancchoddas Shyamaldas Chanchad, the main protagonist of the 3 Idiots. He is lively, fearless and innovative lad who just wants to learn. The story is how these young men pave their way under Professor Viru Sahastrabudhhe popularly known as VIRUS. The Professor is a very intelligent but hard to go along with personality and mentor. The Bollywood factor is provided by Karina Kapoor.

The film is full of real day to day life comedy. Hirani kept enough comedy to make you sit for three hours. Sharman Joshi gives another excellent performance. He is coming out as the best supporting actor with several good comic roles. Amir Khan like always did a great job.

The novels on which movies are based are always superior than latter. Five point someone is an excellent novel written in very basic language. The three protagonist of Chetan Bhagat are amoral. They live as they like. They do not dictate or preach. That is the liveliness of Five point someone. The film severely failed in portraying the essence of Five point someone. Two thing that is way above my understanding are who can give birth to a baby using a vacuum cleaner and who can patent 400 innovation in 5 years.
