Sunday Movies

It was the last Sunday in mumbai for me b4 I leave for my home on coming Saturday. Decided to watch the movie TROY and luckily got the tickets at regal.
The Movie Wolfgang Petersen's Troy isn't its rousing super-battles, the grandiose scale of its sets or its expert cinematography. We know that Hollywood has the ability to pull off such large-scale trickery. And, after such successful epics as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, such sights and sounds should come as no surprise, considering what is capable with today's moviemaking technology. What's most impressive about Troy is that it comes across as an effective and even insightful character study, even if you're just watching a big, expensive magic trick.Troy is "inspired" by Homer's poem The Iliad, which, along with The Odyssey, is something most of us read in high school English class. Homer's book chronicles, often with gruesome detail, the war between the Greeks and the city of Troy after Trojan prince Paris (Orlando Bloom) falls in love with Greek princess Helen (Diane Kruger). Paris and Helen steal away to Troy, causing Helen's husband Menelaus (Brendan Gleeson) to urge his brother Agamemnon (Brian Cox) to wage war on the Trojans. The Greek army launches a thousand ships to the Troy beach, accompanied by the supposedly invincible Achilles (Brad Pitt). The 10-year war begins, though in Troy it only feels like a few days.


After TROY the movie mood is still haunting so went to sterling to see Van Helsing..Which is really heavy to watch and to Indian audience its hard to grasp even. All those ghosts,demons stories with no storyline as such.

Return back to home by 11.40pm.

Current Song: "Sanam Teri Kasam"
Current mood : "relished"
