Three films are hitting the Chennai theatres
this Friday. Two hindi movies and one in Yucatec
Maya language(of course with subtitles). Bombay
to Goa a out and out comedy flick which is
acted by laughter challenge contestants. Who
knows this can turn out to be another Bheja
fry. And the second Hindi release is a fantasy
prone kid movie about Lord Ganesha.
After the success of Hanuman many kid movie are being
experimented and My friend Ganesha is on the same lines
but it also incorporates live action too. And the third
movie is the Mel Gibson action thriller, Apocalypto.
Behindwood’s choice of the week
Apocalypto- the movie is set many years in the past when
the Mayakkan tribes were ruling the Country. The movie
is about a small tribe in a forest tormented by the neighbouring
tribe as a part of their ritual to get free from the drought.
The hero Jaguar Paw gets prisoned but not before safe
keeping his Pregnant wife and his son. The hero then escapes
from their clutches but not before killing the son of
the Neighboring tribe’s General. What follows may
be described as one of the best running chase sequence
ever to be seen in cinema history. Will Jaguar paw be
successful in getting united with his wife forms the rest
of this thrilling movie.
A man tears open a man alive and rips off his heart and
then slashes his head. Do you feel like puking after reading
this? Then this definitely is not for you. The movie is
filled with such graphic violence. Definitely the censors
would have had a tough time with editing this movie to
be suitable for Indian audience. But if you want to see
an action movie with unbelievable chase sequence with
breath taking camera work this movie never to be missed.
And forgot to mention that the movie is not in English
but the original language of the Mayyan’s Yucatec
Maya. But there are subtitles and the tamil dubbed version
is also out.
One of the minus of the movie is that, the movie was released
on December 2006 in US (it did not actually set the box
office on fire) and there is a big chance that movie fanatics
would have seen the movie in DVD. But I personally will
suggest you to see the movie in the big screen.
