Brilliant execution. Apprehension -> Exhilaration -> Awe -> Adoration-> Comedy -> Yawn..-> Predictable . This is how I viewed the movie, in that order. Old wine in a totally new bottle . And the bottle is just bubbling with technique. But, just a tad bit too long. The Blue Na’vi with long braids, that would be the envy of most Indian girls and long tails are huge with a soft heart. Good( Na’vi ) triumphs over Evil( Humans).The concept of one universal force has been talked about time and again, in various formats, from Advaita to James Redfield’s “The celestine Prophecy” and Cameron has shown it in his own 3D way. AWESOME. The depth in some of the scenes were too good.
This would mostly have been my MIL’s view: ( in Tamil)
” Paaka nallan dhan irundhadhu. Enna, Kaliyugathula Krishnanoda avataram kamcha madiri. Aana, avaala inom konjam azhaga kaati irukalam. En palli madiri moonjinu theriyala. Idula jadaiyum , vaalum vera..
loosely translated to ” Nice movie. Felt like watching Krishna Avatar in Kaliyuga. But, they could have made them look better. Felt like watching flying lizards.”
Once in a lifetime movie. A must watch.Should be watched in 3D . Get ready for Avatar toys.
