SACHIN: A Billion Dreams
Sachin Tagline – A Billion Dreams
Directed by – James Erskine
Unparalleled CV – From the ashes, ‘Pantani: The Accidental death of a cyclist, Battle of the sexes, Shooting for Socrates. The makers should be complimented for taking the best to highlight the best.
Music – A.R Rehman
That’s it Is a Docu-drama and not a motion picture so,
1. The truth will be showcased, especially the inner struggle of not performing under pressure when mattered especially in finals.
Or Not touching the 300 mark in tests.
Or Reasons behind failure as captain.
2. Sporting life or for that matter any icons life is not overshadowed by singing and dancing making it more of a Filmy story than a realistic journey.
3. Inspire more such Documentaries and not AZAR and MS DHONI types torture on our sensibilities, period!
Everyone is Human, so mistakes will be made and they ought to be showcased.
Will inspire that no matter how much talent you have, in the end, it’s all about Dedication in the right Direction makes you achieve your dreams and most importantly right place at the right time.
Should you watch it – Who wouldn’t?
With a competent director captaining one of greatest sportsman world has witnessed from real onto the reel, it should be an enthralling, exciting and hopefully, surprising elements incorporated to make this once a life time journey as has been for the one and only SACHIN – SACHIN.
Just a thought – Salute our Heroes after they have finished their journey and not make it just for the heck of it, then it’s more of a business proposition and not doing justice to anyone concerned except if only monetary gains are on the mind. Somewhere the person being projected, it’s their responsibility because you don’t make a BIOPIC on a person who has just started though shining but may rise higher or fall flat then what?
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN
DIRECTED BY – Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg
Previous work – Kon- Tiki (2012) and Max Manus: Man of War (2008).
Looking at their CV may create doubts in mind of many who can’t relate to their past, but that’s what’s makes movie business so unpredictable where a hit and miss change destinies with the blink of an eye as every Friday comes and goes by.
Running Time – 128 mins
Pirates installments have been the darling of the box office with almost $3700 million collective gross till date with 2nd earning the most till date.
Will it strike gold or will just be another passable and forgotten as history unfolds only time will tell, but what’s for sure is,
Dependable, Delicious and Deceptive – DEPP will keep your interest intact till the time as Jack sparrow he enacts.
THE LOST CITY OF Z
Directed By – James Gray
Surprise Surprise, but yes it’s true this based on the book by DAVID GRANN is getting rave reviews and in fact may turn out to be the dark horse if Grandeur and performances are both catching the eye and that’s a rarity.
RUNNING TIME – 142 mins
