Anbe Sivam (2003) (Tamil)

                                   Director : Sundar C
                                   Genre    : Drama, Adventure, Comedy
                                   Cast      : Kamal Hassan,R Madhavan and Kiran Rathod

            Kamal Hassan is one rare actor who still act in only selected and story oriented movies.And his super stardom has never overshadowed his movies.' Anbe Sivam'(English: 'Love is God') is a Tamil movie released in 2003 and was written by none other than Kamal Hassan.Even after being a big fan of this actor(remember,i told actor..not star) i didn't watched many of his notable movies.I watched this because someone recommended me to watch this movie when i was discussing 'ancient aliens' conspiracy theory with him.

           Movie starts when Mr.A.Aras(Madhavan) who is young, arrogant and thinks he knows everything about the world,meets Mr.N.Sivam(Kamal Hassan),a wise-cracking handicapped communist at Bhuvaneshwar airport when all flights are cancelled because of bad weather.They both stuck with each other and had to travel to Chennai through road&rail.Whole story of the movie is about their adventurous journey and about the concept 'god'.

        It is not a serious movie,Kamal make you laugh at moments.And what many don't know is, the film is based on Kamal Hassan's personal views on Theism.The movie has a beautiful concept about god.I really loved it.And the main protagonists Kamal hassan and Madhavan acts really well.Watch out for an amazingly shot bus accident scene and an interesting character of a thief in a train.This movie is said to be inspired from John Hughes' 1987 American film 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'I will say it's a must watch movie for all movie goers,and others who wanna know about god.

        If you don't understand Tamil language,watch it with English subtitle.It's available for download.Or buy a DVD(with subtitles) which is very hard to get because it's a regional movie.If you cant find the torrent,put a request in comment box,i will mail the link to you.

Tower Heist (2011) (English)

                               Director : Brett Ratner
                               Genre    : Thriller,Comedy
                               Cast      : Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller and Casey Affleck

      'Tower Heist' is a 2011 released movie starring Ben Stiller&Eddie Murphy in main roles.Directed by Brett Ratner who also directed Rush Hour 1&2.I was not in a mood to watch this movie,but since my friend brought this i had to,and surprisingly it turned out to be a good movie.

      Ben Stiller and Casey Affleck works as employees of an exclusive apartment building-the tower-and they were too late to realize that they lost their pension money in a ponzi scheme of a Wall street businessman who lives in the same apartment.Now,there is only one way to get back their money.The bunch of employees seeks the help of  a criminal.How will they be successful in their mission?..Watch the movie.

    This movie is really good with some unexpected twists and suspense.There is not much comedy till Eddie Murphy comes.And there are nail biting scenes where you think characters have gone crazy.This Brett Ratner directed movie is definitely worth a watch.You won't regret it for sure.

Machine Gun Preacher (2011) (English)

                             Director : Marc Forster
                             Genre    : Action, Drama, Biography
                             Cast      : Gerard Butler, Michelle Monaghan and Michael Shannon

             When i started watching this movie i was sure i wont right a review about this.But this movie surprised me.My movie watching was interrupted by a friend's visit and i had postpone the show.In between when i got time,like i always does i did a small search about the movie and found out that shocking thing.The dramatic-filmy events shown in the movie happened in someone's real life.And he is still alive and living his unbeatable life as a legend...!!!..And if i don't write a review of this film,it will be a disrespect to him.
          'Machine gun preacher' is about Sam Childers who was a biker-drug dealer who found god(meaning started using his life for good) and became a guardian angel for hundreds of Sudanese children who were forced to become soldiers and fight a war which was not theirs..
         Sam Childers is a real person who still lives in Sudanese villages and saves and feeds a lot of Sudanese children without expecting and without getting anything from them.Gerald Butler made this role awesome by his really matured acting.There is real Sam Childers who comes at the end credits of the movie and they shows real photographs and video clips of the real Sam.And the cool name Machine gun preacher is the nick name of real Sam childers.Thats what Sudanese people call him..!!
A MUST WATCH MOVIE undoubtedly to know there are people in this world who devoted their lives for causes like this.

Note : There are bad words in the first half and a lot of violence and bloody scenes later.So this movie is not be suitable for minors.

We Bought a Zoo (2011) (English)

                            Director : Cameron Crowe
                            Genre    : Comedy, Drama, Family
                            Cast      : Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church

          First line on the poster 'From the director of JERRY MAGUIRE' was enough for me to watch this movie.I watched this Cameron Crowe directed movie 2-3 weeks back.Sorry for the late review.This is one of the best movie of the year 2011-2012 (In some countries it was a 2011 Christmas release,and in some countries it is yet to release).
         'We Bought A Zoo' is a story of Benjamin Mee and his young family who just moved into new home and a struggling-to-survive zoo (which is a part of it) from a family disaster they faced.Will they be successful to overcome their mental stress?Will they be able to save the zoo?..Watch the movie to know the answers to these questions.
       Matt Demon as a father of two kids is a refreshing role to watch.And full marks for his transformation from the spy from bourn series to the struggling father.This movie is based on a memoir by the real life Benjamin Mee.Maggie Elizabeth Jones who play the character of Benjamin Lee's young daughter is a awesome acting treat to watch.Her character almost play the role of the mother in the family.You will understand that once you watch the movie.And i highly recommend this movie.Its a must watch.

Wrath of the Titans (2012) (English)

                                    Director : Jonathan Liebesman
                                    Genre    : Action,Fantasy,Adventure
                                    Cast      : Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson and Rosamund Pike

            Usually i don't like fantasy movies,and i try my best to avoid them.But there are some movies which you cant avoid.From the moment i watched 'Clash of the Titans'(2010),i knew that was one of those movie.So when i saw the first trailer of it's sequel,'Wrath of the Titans'(2012), i was sure i'm gonna watch this epic.
       'Wrath of the Titans' is a Greek epic which tells the story of Perseus a demigod who travvels to underworld to recue his father Zeus who is captured by his Zeus' another son Ares and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans to destroy the world.
        This sequel of Clash of the Titans scores full marks in visual effects,acting and story part.Its a movie which should be watched in 3D.Another part i really loved is Pegasus-the flying horse(i really want one of those.) So if you love these kind of mythological-fantasy epics,you will love this movie.Or if you are a person who don't know anything about greek mythology,you better watch 'Clash of the Titans' first then watch this movie.
