Movie Review : 2012

This movie for me was not just a movie. After having read various theories behind this event slated for 21st Dec 2012, it was a nice depiction as to how it will actually happen. And from my point of view, it was a very realistic view of what I had actually imagined, and seeing it with my own eyes, though in a picture, was quite frightening.

Its not just a movie, its something what you have thought about and its about the end of the world. Its something, which one is not sure at the same time, one is again not sure that it will happen. We are living here on this planet earth and planning for the future as if we are going for live till the age of 60-70. And if we go by this theory, we dont need to plan , we just need to live to next 2 years. So its a constant conflict in the mind as to what extent you can trust this theory and what will really happen to you per se.

As for the movie, it revolves around the same old White House and the President of USA, something close to what Independence Day was, with an amalgamation of Titanic. But in all a good depiction as to what will be the actual things which will happen. Wonderful special effects, WOW is not enough.
The movie starts from India, where an Indian figures out that the temperture of the core of the earth is imcreasing at a rapid pace, and he tells his friend from USA who is working in the Geological Dept of the Government.
Then it moves on to show how they plan to build a huge ship a.k.a the in the Bible, which takes every animal on the planet so that the specie is not destroyed. Also shown is how much of commercialisation is done and how are the tickets to your life are sold.
But at the end its very clearly shown that, only the ones who have done good deeds will be saved and thats the true essence of the movie. Its again the joining of the dots, as to how even the so called bad people will assist the good people unknowningly for their own benefit.
China is clearly shown as the work force of the world and any given task can be assigned to them to be completed in a given time. At the same time, Indian is someone who discovers it first, but doesnt even manage to save himself, thinks more of others and helping others, again so true of the Indian culture.

Its indeed a great movie. I simply loved it.
