Inception - Dream world

Still I remember this story of Chuang Tzu. It is as follows..

Once upon a time, Chuang Tzu dreamed that he was a butterfly, flying about enjoying itself. It did not know that it was Chuang Tzu. Suddenly he awoke, and veritably was Chuang Tzu again. He did not know whether it was Chuang Tzu dreaming that he was a butterfly, or whether it was the butterfly dreaming that it was Chuang Tzu. Between Chuang Tzu and the butterfly there must be some distinction. This is a case of what is called the transformation of things.

Discussion: "This shows that, although in ordinary appearance there are differences between things, in delusions or in dreams one thing can also be another. The transformation of things proves that the differences among things are not absolute "



Inception is almost similar to Chuang Tzu's dream. Story is a one liner but the script is multi-layered and complex one. It is better to watch in the big screen for a good experience. Initially I thought it will be difficult for me to understand the dialogue of this film. But it was pretty easy to understand it and the story line. Only thing is to remember all the things happening simultaneously.

From Wiki, I read Christopher Nolan had created this script nearly 10 years ago!! He wanted to make some big movies before making this one. So he made "Batman begins", "The Prestige" (one of my favorites) and "Dark Knight". One of the amazing thing was the filming of the movie. They finished it in approximately 6 months of time.

It is really worth an effort to make a movie with this storyline. Technically brilliant one.Amazing cinematography, CG, music... Hats off to Christopher Nolan and his team!! This movie will grab its share in Oscars.
