Mixture - 2

Watched a good set of movies recently. Though I couldn't write reviews about them, at least would like to share a few here.

Seven Samurai

One of the magnificent films of Akira Kurosawa. Story line is how a group of Seven samurai teams together and helps a village against the attack of Bandits. Completely enjoyed the every aspect of the movie.

Laputa - Castle in the sky

Another wonderful animation film of Hayao Miyazaki. It is a tale about search of Laputa, a castle in the sky. Why it is searched and what happens in the search? I liked the story narration and music of the film. Must watch for animation lovers. Also watch Miyazaki's other movies like Princess Mononoke, Spirited away.

Peepli [Live]

This is popular in the media now. How ironic? You would have heard the story already from many reviews and news. So watch it in the screen if you have not. Most of the actors are new and theater artists. A good satire..


This movie starts in the day (in 1945) where Germany got attacked by Russians. Berlin is surrounded by them and what happens in the background of Hitler and his men. Amazing war sequences and cast. Bruno Ganz's acting as Hitler is stunning (see the stumbling fingers). Though Germany has done horrifying things during world war II, you will pity for them while watching this movie.

Le Grand Voyage

One of the best films I watched recently. It is a story of a Father and his son during their Haj pilgrimage. Characterization of both persons, how a father influences his son are wonderful. A must watch movie.
