A whole new galaxy

The start of  the weekend was an exciting affair for many film-goers as the latest instalment of the epic sci-fi series, 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi', hit the theatres. Written and directed by Rian Johnson, the American space opera film has been garnering many positive reviews.  

Many fans  planned their  day in such a way that they could catch the first day, first show. Amogh Ravindra and his friends had a movie marathon the day before where they rewatched the  previous episodes.

The designer says, "We've been waiting for a long time for the film to release and we knew that we had the catch the first show. I took the day off from work just for this."

Chandendu Arteev, an architectural designer, adds, "The 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' was one of the most gratifying movies where every section had a surprise element to it.  There was a point where we did think it might not  make sense but  everything came together at the end."  

"What I loved most about the  movie was that it answered all our questions. The only thing left was anticipation about the upcoming episodes," he adds.  

Amogh adds, "Everything from the character designs to the  other details of the film  was brilliant.  New creatures were introduced. The return of Carrie Fisher was quite nice too."

For Salim Mohammed, a delivery manager, this was a movie that he had been looking forward to for a long time. "I saw the movie with my friends on Friday morning and it was a great start to the day. I wouldn't say that the movie is brilliant but it had everything I was  expecting.  I'm not much of a 'Star Wars' fan but as a movie buff,  it's a film I would recommend to others."  

Those who couldn't watch the movie yesterday are eagerly waiting to watch it over the weekend. Communication consultant Sandeep Deb Varman has been staying away from social media for the fear of spoilers.  

He says, "I've been watching the series  since childhood and the way I look at the films has changed over the years. As a kid, it introduced me to a new world but now my focus is the way the story is told and  how a new character is introduced. I'm looking forward to some of the new elements that have been added."

Sadiq, a gamer, is also looking forward to watching the film this weekend with his friends. He says, "I love that the films have been turning darker and the content is also maturing with each film. The trailer was absolutely brilliant and didn't give away much. It seems like a long wait but I know that the film will be amazing."
