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!!
