Rush (2013) - Hollywood movie review

Rush. Yes, that is a right name to the movie filled with pure adrenaline rush. It sure gave me some goosebumps because this is the first movie that I watched at a theatre in the United States!

Every race sequence from how the drivers prepare, from the busy pit-stops and how each F1 driver is mad to accelerate around every corner of the track.

So, about this movie, this movie is not about F1 races and neither is about all the technicalities in an F1 race but a very few is shown during some race sequences. This sports-drama movie is purely about the rivalry that was between two legendary F1 drivers - Niki Lauda and James Hunt during the 1976 F1 season- which goes back to the formula three days in 1970.

Daniel Bruhl as Lauda is so amazing in every frame that the calculative mindset of Lauda is depicted with perfection; Chris Hemsworth is at his charming best and his face shows the thrust that Hunt puts on the acceleration of the cars. The dramatic scenes at the hospital with multiple treatments being done in Lauda shows us the determination that the Austrian had. The movie engages us till the end for the final decision taken by Lauda, who makes a comeback in a very short span of time after a major accident!

Rush. Everyone's driven by something. Reminds me of a life question: "What drives you...."

I'd generously give it a rating of 8.5/10. How much would you?

What does the Fox say?

All around the world, every child is taught about several animals/mammals sounds. But little are they taught or shown what a Fox says.

No, I'm not curious nor did I get this thinking while burping last night. This is the recent "viral music video" (along with the song) by a Norwegian band Ylvis who (I think) created the video for fun but didn't expect it to gobble down all the views on YouTube. The What does the Fox say video currently stands at 129,686,871. I did see to this song on the US top 40 some days ago.

The next question to "What does the Fox say" might be "Will this video do a Gangnam"? - which has 1,794,696,755 views as of this writing.

Probably? Probably not. Have a look at it yourself:

Raja Rani - Kollywood(Tamil) Movie review

Yet another movie review by our friend Jagdeep! Seems he is on a movie watching spree :).

Here goes Jagdeep with his review...

The movie was an absolute treat to watch, hats off to the rookie director Atlee for pulling  off such an exotic delight for the viewers. I was excited on watching this movie after watching the TV promos. I went with an excitement to have a delightful experience and I was not disappointed even a second while watching the movie.

The movie was a perfect blend of RomanceComedy and Pain in Life. I just loved the romantic portion of the film and the sizzling performance with the likes Nayanthara, Nazriya, Arya and Jai was complementing the story pretty well. The director has rocked all the theaters of Chennai with his refreshing tale of Raja Rani. The movie emphasizes a true fact that “There is Life after a Love Failure”. The director has brought to light the minute details between a Husband and a Wife which is simply wonderful to watch in the screen. The movie is sculpted to its precision that I didn't feel any flaw in the movie. The movie is a family entertainer and with a social message to all the youngsters. I was totally entangled with the movie and there were some scenes which were lovely to watch, like the different eye liners for Nazriya during her romantic scenes with Arya. The costumes in the movie were perfect with respect to the actors and it complemented their looks perfectly. The screenplay was paced beautifully and the script gave life to all the characters in the movie. As everyone is aware the movie is a multi starrer with Sathyaraj, Arya, Jai, Nayanthara, Nazriya, Santhanam and Sathyan. The actors were tangled to their roles and gave life to a masterpiece of director Atlee.

In short - Raja Rani is a movie about “Love for Life”.

I will go with 4.5 Stars out of 5 for this movie!!
