Inception – Movie Review

I like Christopher Nolan’s works. Till date, of what I have seen – Memento, The Prestige, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, he has dished out fabulous films. I would agree to the accepted notion that he is the one who is capable of handling complex themes, especially the ones with deal with mind, the conscious and the subconscious. So when I stepped into watch ‘Inception’ I was all ready for a complex theme. But of course there was a fear of not able to grasp or understand what is being narrated.

Its been long since I have watched such an edge-of-the-seat thriller. Its complex, yes, but keeps you enthralled and entertained. Nolan’s greatness is evident when he realizes the complex theme on the screen and makes the film goer understand the concept. Its a huge challenge and he has accomplished it. It takes time to get the grip of what is happening, but once you are into it, its a great watch. Parallels will be drawn with the ‘Matrix’ series, which also shares a similar theme, of a world away from this ‘Real’ world. But here its not a world, but ‘Dreams’. And not just one, but dreams inside dreams inside dreams inside…Its complex and interesting to watch, so I wont divulge much details here. Full credit to Leonardo DiCaprio for his fabulous portrayal of ‘Dom Cobb’.

If you are game for a thriller, good action, wonderful effects and above all an intelligent film, go watch INCEPTION !!
