Before you read this any further, please note that there might be a spoiler in there, if you read carefully. So, read at your own risk.
Now that we have established that you are not afraid of spoilers, the first one is that this movie has been inspired from Bollywood. It’s got a hero, a heroin, a villain, lots of emotion, many twists and turns, many impossible things happening around, and a Happy Ending. On top of it all, there are ‘They’ who guide the astronauts at every step to help save the mankind from distinction. Not to say there is no adaptation by Hollywood. No prize for guessing who saves the world this time – USA. Long live America!
Let’s get to the nuts and bolts of the movie. This is set in the future when all of a sudden, there are dust storms all across (the USA) and the world is coming to an end. To resolve this issue, NASA has established that there is no other option but to transfer the whole human race to another planet (probably to destroy that as well over the next few decades before moving on). And then there is a father – the protagonist – who leads the way through wormholes, black-holes, galaxies and what not to ultimately find a very neatly laid out book-shelf in space from where he can communicate with Earth. And who laid out this book-shelf? ‘They’. That might all sound a little too complicated and absurd, but apparently, that is the reason for this movie receiving critical accolades. And while you are trying to move your head around with all this, there is some technical gibberish going around that is supposed to confuse you (and as a result appreciate the movie).
In a nutshell, this movie is all about emotions and relations, and not about the space or the Fifth Dimension. So, if you are interested in watching a little more ‘happening’ version of Gravity with more drama and more characters added to it, this movie is exactly what you are looking for.
