The Last Emperor

I've taken this film from library and watched it. I thought it might be some sort of historical story of emperor. But this one is totally different from what I thought. It takes us through the life of "The Last Emperor" of China. It starts with the war criminals being brought to China from Russian captivity and the Ex-Emperor being one of them. Story starts from there with the 3 year old becoming an Emperor.

Nice interlude of scenes between the current and past. With the excellent cinematography and music, we are there in China. Breaking of world wars, its impact and the aftermath were portrayed well.

At the end, when the emperor goes back to palace by buying a visitor pass, telling a boy that he was the emperor and proving him, was a spectacular finish..

This is a lengthy film I've seen after "Ten Commandments" and "Ben Hur". But it doesn't bore me. If you love History, this is a must watch!!

Sachin - Oru Sahaabdham

Nice blog writing on Sachin's recent record from here.This blog almost matches my experience.

I'm watching Sachin right from his debut.In those days, we don't have TV @ home. So me and my friends were watching Sharjah matches (in those days it was mostly between India,Pakistan,W.Indies) in a friend's house. During schooldays, in the interval and free periods, we used to run outside school to a nearby TV showroom to watch the cricket matches. This continued in College days as well where I ran to hostel and sometimes to English dept. to see the match.
Once I went to Chepauk ground to see an Irani trophy match. I saw his batting in live for a short time. That made my day. If I start on talking about his batting or sensational matches, it can go on. Nowadays, media focus is so much that even if he didn't play well for one match, they start making noise. This happens not only for him but for all the senior players.

Keep going, Sachin. Ponting is behind you closely. But still you've made into the hearts of millions of cricket fans like anyone before!! We cannot imagine a team without you playing in the future..

Hotel Rwanda

I never imagined such things had happened after the Holocaust and India-Pakistan formation. One of the horrible genocide in human history.This is a true story which portrays the humanity and courage of a man (Paul Rusesabagina).

Must Watch..
