Gazing at a stellar show

It has taken the world by storm and how! ‘Interstellar’, the latest project of Christopher Nolan, has intrigued movie-goers as much as it has impressed them.

The drama on space, that has a great cast and equally ‘stellar’ performances, has caught the attention of both the young and the old.

College-going students are amazed at the brilliance of the film and feel that though it may not be as good as last year’s space hit ‘Gravity’, it’s definitely the best movie of this year.

As told to Deepa Natarajan Lobo

Easy to figure

Deepali rai, a first-year PGDM student of St Joseph’s College of Business Administration, understood every bit of the movie. “It was an excellent movie. I don’t know why people are saying they didn’t understand it. I understood it in one shot,” she says. She has been a big fan of Nolan since ‘The Dark Knight’. “The first thing I noticed in ‘The Dark Knight’ was the background score and I have been following all of Nolan’s movies after that. I loved ‘Inception’ too. I wasn’t willing to watch the film initially but in the end, it was totally worth it,” she adds. 

Unbelievable yet believable

John Moses raj, second-year student of St Joseph’s College of Business Administration, feels that though there are a number of talented graphic artistes in India, the studios aren’t paid well. “Also, the time taken to make a movie here is very less. So the quality suffers. However, one Hollywood project is in the making for years,” he says. “Another thing is though movies like ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Inception’ are larger-than-life, they are also realistic at the same time. One can relate to them. I particularly liked the dynamics between the father and daughter,” he adds.

Confusing climax

Eesa ahmed, a student of second PUC from St Germain High School, was confused with the ending. “The movie had a very emotional ending. It also ended up leaving everyone confused. Though one can relate to it and feels sad, a thing like this will not happen in reality. Maybe in years to come, it will. Maybe our children’s children will experience it!”

Bollywood behind

Farhan mohammad, a student of CMR Law School, feels that Bollywood is far behind. “They tried using such graphics in movies like ‘Krrish’ but failed. Here, too much attention is paid to the stars, romantic sequences and the hero never gets hurt! But if it had to be made here, Aamir Khan can probably do justice to the role.”

Musically yours

Aaquib jamal, a first-year PGDM student of St Joseph’s College of Business Administration, was blown away by the music of the film. “The combination of the music by Hans Zimmer along with Nolan’s ideas was sheer brilliance. I am a big fan of Nolan and I went to watch the movie thinking he will surprise me and he surely did! Each film of his is different. ‘Interstellar’ is definitely the best movie of the year.”
