Bahubali 2 Conclusion (Telugu)

Rarely the sequel is better than the original. Bahubali 2 is a colossal production improving on 1. The visual effects are mind boggling. This is a VMAX theater movie and a must see for big production lovers. The story continues from 1 and the producers have fine tuned the overall impact. I saw it on VMAX and was sitting spellbound for three hours. The sound quality is brilliant. Truly mesmerizing.

Don’t judge it, look for logic or look for rationality.  Sit back and live through the fantasy unfolding with tremendous impact. Hats off!

All the actors look like your characters from ‘Ambuli Mama’ have come true. The physicality of the two lead actors is a Telugu screen specialty.  Pity there is no Bahubali 3.

Not long from now you will see Mahabaratham and Ramayanam following. One day they may even make ‘Ponniyin Selvan’.

The movie is a giant leap and puts Indian cinema, specially Telugu cinema at its best and at par or better than  Hollywood big budget productions.

Hidden Figures (E)

 

Hidden Figures Poster

Imagine you are a women, African American living in West Hampton, West Virgina, USA in 1961. Also, you are a highly intelligent mathematician working for NASA. Struggling and suffering the brunt of racism yet you survive, succeed and excel. This will be your story and a great one.

This is based on the true life story. In 1961, mathematician Katherine Goble works as a “computer” (a person performing mathematical calculations, before electronic computers) the segregated West Area Computers division of Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, alongside her colleague, aspiring engineer Mary Jackson and her unofficial supervisor Dorothy Vaughan. The story is her life and how against all odds she excelled and was recognized for her brilliance.


Very good movie. One of the best feel good movies to be watched with aspiring young children specially girls.

Taraji P. Henson as Katherine provides a memorable performance supported by Octavia Spencer as Dorothy Vaughan and Janelle Monáe as Mary Jackson. I loved the splendid performance by Kevin Costner.

See it in theater before screening closes.
