Time Travel – Eee (#atozapril 2013 challenge)
Ok, Time Travel for T is a simple guess for every Holly wood watcher – Just the Back to the Future series will cover it all……..Tossing in Out got a long list!! But then, i again realized that the entire Indian cinema thrives on family drama ……… and how will I get the time travel movie for A to Z challenge!!
Is it very rare for a pure sci-fi movie in Indian cinema? While Wiki lists many Indian science fiction movies here – many are on aliens, next life, etc. I did one loner Indian movie under the time travel in the list of Bollywood movies, which I am yet to watch
So, I went to the next nearest – where the characters travel from one life to another life – it nicely aligns with the Indian mythology – the soul is all persistent and moves from one body to another and never perishes. What is left behind when a person dies is only the physical body. With that as a background, the recent movie I enjoyed is Naan Ee. Naan Ee is a 2012 drama and released in many Indian languages including Tamil and Hindi. What made it unique was the live action animation and visual effects. The storyline is simple – The hero gets killed by the bad guy as the bad guy wants the hero’s girlfriend. The hero is born again as a house fly (yes, that little small insect!) and the house fly takes revenge on the villain and protects his girl friend! Fun movie – there was actually a song sequence where the house fly dances!! Kids will love it!!
