With both fiction and nonfiction fascinating movies released this year there are few  Based on true story kind of movies too that triggered this year. One such based on true story movie released after The Attacks of 26/11,Bhag Milkha Bhag is Madras Cafe. The series of events occurred in Indian political history during 80's and 90's relating to Civic war in Sri Lanka and assassination of Rajiv Gandhi are structured in the form of complete frame of storytelling process. Bound to political flavors, movie maker Shoojit Sircar amplified the engrossing effect on the audience.

John Abraham is seen as the Valorous soldier Vikram Singh. The Rock Stat Debut lady Nargis Fakhri is portrayed as the role of British Journalist Jaya Sahini. With fall down and failures in recent years, John Abraham bounced back as Actor through composed hush-up acting. Director Sircar rightly chose the role of Nargis as a journalist to visualize the British looks and Indian accent. Kamaljeet Negi's exquisite cinematography is icing on the cake to the well made connected story. Shantanu Moitra's music is melodious and pleasing too.   

The vibrating visionary treat and enwrapping screenplay makes the movie more interesting. Recommended to watch to relish and refresh from non radical movies.

Movie Name - Elysium
Cast - Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharito Copley, Alice Braga etc.
Director/Written By  - Neill Blomkamp
Release Day - August 9th, 2013

Being in reality we think of fiction having imaginary aspects from multiple minds of virtual world. The rumor of world ends in 2012 was viral past. We have reached to advanced world from the antique world making ourselves more and more technological as robots rather than human beings. And one such science fiction material is brought by the director Neill Blomkamp in the name of happiest place called as Elysium above the Earth. 

Keeping in mind today's environmental and political conditions the hypothetical way of story starts in the year 2154 where The Earth is annihilated with disease,  over population and pollution. That's where this cosmic place called Elysium comes into factor with all the affluent people living in the Elysium. Max(Matt Damon) an ex larcenist(thief) lives in suburbs of Los Angeles who works for the Elysium factory which models the robots and maintains the Elysium on Earth. 

On the other side there comes Defense Secretary Jessica(Jodie Foster) who works in the Elysium to protect and lavish the lives of the wealthy people from the poverty stricken Earth. Due to some circumstances and radio activity effects  in factory Max is going to die in few days. With the help of Spider(Wagner Moura) Max wants to reach to Elysium to make legal citizenship and diseased free process as grant to every person on Earth.

Though this one is a science fiction of the virtual planet, the movie can be compared with Rich vs Poor in current world. Lack of self respect, hatred, racism, cruelty, corruption is making humanitarian as devilish animal. The screenplay and story blended in a fine shape to make more interest to viewers. There are some questions which makes the audience baffled like what happens to Rest Out of world apart from Los  Angeles etc. Yes as a movie freak we can neglect those baffled questions and make to sense the engrossing Action/ and Thriller  of Sci-Fi  Elysium to make ourselves happy and satisfied  in the Elysium called as Movie Theaters.

Chennai Express

Cast - Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, SatyaRaj, Priyamani(Special Appearance  in 1 2 3 4 song) etc
Director - Rohit Shetty
Produced by - Gauri Khan, Ronie Screwala, Siddhart Roy Kapoor
Studio - Red Chilli Entertainments
Music - Vishal Sekhar
Release Date - 08/09/2013 (Released on EID)

Deepika Padukone debuted in Om Shanti Om with Shahruk Khan. Now after 6 years the duo paired again in Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express. A Typical DDLJ type of movie but in southern style. Rohit Shetty want to prove his southern spice like the way he made Singam and iska baap Singam 2. But I think Rohit lost his pace in terms of action sequences. Is Southern cinema is really blunt of making those kind of typical south movies. yes it was used to where hero fights even though villain makes him to die like nuts still Hero wins. Rohit just following his principle of commercial elements. There are still some south directors who wants to apply rules based on commercial elements rather than subject and pioneer effects. Pity that we still have those kind of commercial minded directors in south esp Tollywood.

Songs are not like regular Shahrukh khan type. Only songs which are haunting are the Deepika's /Shahrukh's melodic song titli from the Voice of Chinmayi and gopi sundar. Priyamani's  special appearance song 1 2 3 4 get on the floor has some ravishing tunes and steps to dance on the floor. Shahrukh is known for his acting but this time its Deepika Padukone who overshadowed Shahrukh khan here. Finally to say that how is the movie, it is reliable to say that there are many express trains( Action,Emotion,Drama, Horror) but Sharukh this time want to apt comedy express and Chennai Express is what it is.

 The rays of ride…the shine of hope…The dawn days they are..
Tring Tring...
Cycle bells are ringing…Birds are chirping
little baby in our neighbor house is in lullaby
Sunday sunshine made my friends to come early

The greenery trees…Flora of grass with tiny flowers...Perky pitch..
Time to play cricket with dearly..Flow of heat quickening the body
Made to realize bit of sweat as I’m running badly…
Hurray we won

Cheering crowd..Wisecracking whistles…Dazzling dances it is...
Movie madness made us to catch the cinema.
We are on the edge of the seats to sense the drama.
Larkish mind and biting teeth trying to catch the enigma..
Hola we had fun
Fear flows...tension turmoils...
This sudden occurrence is due to my failure in examination
All the fun went to vein…The flow of blood is in ignition
Last day (Tomorrow) for the progress report submission
Recollected the warnings from the Teacher
and also Scolding’s and beatings earlier form the father.

The poise of prayers…The divine of eternity
Ohh Lord Save me...Shouted Rohan with cry
Man Proposes and God Disposes…
Make a wish my child asks the Almighty..
Please sign my progress report which matches my father signature responses the child

Floating in the dreams...With the waves of happiness
Rohan… Wakeup... Wakeup…
(Vociferous voice waking me up)...Get me the progress card ….
(Oh No’s a dream)I'm waking up; I felt the fear in my bones
Being myself an Idiot..received the treat(scoldings from father) all I want
