AvatarNaam to suna hoga! James Cameron!

Confirmed a pass for 20 mins of Avatar in 3D. But was bit apprehensive about travelling for 90 mins for those 20 mins of Avatar. 90 minutes of travel by taxi, train and auto rickshaw. And then the inner voice woke up and said – fuck you dude, its historic! It has never happened before. Tickets for 20 minutes of any film and you are thinking about it! Your mind should exchange positions with your arse. Atleast the arse would not dare to think. And so I was in front of the screen with James Cameroon introducing the film. He assured that it got no spoiler.

Wow! Super-wow! What was that ? Spectacular. Are they men or machine, real or computer generated ? The screening had five scenes and the theatrical promo of the film. It starts with a briefing to the marines about the mission, getting into the avatar form, the hero in the other world fighting huge creatures (dinosaurs with colourful wings kind), more creatures and meeting the love interest and finally riding one of the dragon like creatures and then the trailer. Its a new world and it looks real!

The only problem with Avatar is the hype. Super-hype! 14 years or so in the making and all that! And so if you land up wondering what earth shattering you are going to see, then its nothing. But if you look at it like a cinema buff and know the real story behind it, Avatar doesnt need explanation. 3D, colours, action, creatures, battle, real or computer generated characters and big canvas…gimme more, gimme blue! And if you over-dissect it like Roger THE Ebert has done, there is no fun!

And the big question – so will cinema no longer depend on actors’ dates ? Its all machines now ? The new Avatar! December 18th will give a clear picture. The world might never be the same again!
