In awe of Inception

In awe of Inception

When we dream, we feel safe. Our dreams are our own and there is no way that anyone would be able to know them. You can dream of things that you would never want anyone to know and yet feel that the secret is safe within you… right? Wrong, if you living in the world of Christopher Nolan not even your dreams are safe. Your dreams, deepest buried secrets and thoughts are pretty much out there to be stolen. In the world of Christopher Nolan there are extractors.

Dominic “Dom” Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is an extractor. His latest victim is a very powerful business tycoon… Saito (Ken Watanabe). But Saito manages to spoil the plans and the very next day makes an offer to Cobb that he simply can’t refuse. The offer is to plant an idea (Inception in other words) in mind of Robert Fischer (Cillian Murphy) to split his company so that Saito has no more competition. To accomplish this task Cobb gathers a team that includes Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) … the point man, Ariadne (Ellen Page) … the Architect, Eames (Tom Hardy)… the Forger and Yusuf (Dileep Rao) … the Chemist. They along with Satio set out to perform dangerous (as Fischer is trained) and complex process of inception. But Cobb has a secret that can not only cost his life but also his teams.

‘Inception’ is a visual treat to your eyes. From first scene where Cobb is washed to the shore till the last scene, the visuals are breath taking. Especially, the zero gravity scene in the hotel lobby with Arthur is high-tech, action packed and extraordinary. The other scenes are impressive too. Actually, the whole movie is well edited together into an overall action romp.

The movie could have gone either way as the plot is very novel and complex. But this movie has been so intelligently made by Nolan that you can’t help being blown away by it. There is never a point in the movie that you don’t buy what Noah is trying to sell. I have had high expectations from Noah since I saw Memento and with this movie my expectations have raised higher.

This movie has one of the best cast. Everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio to Marion Cotillard (who is Cobb’s wife Mal) have performed exceptionally well. The acting takes the movie to a complete different level and makes it that much better. Leonardo as Cobb is brilliant. I seriously think he is one of the best actors in Hollywood and I wonder why hasn’t he been given an Academy Award till now.

Anyways, coming back to the movie… its one of the visually spectacular movie I have ever seen. And it’s a must watch.

My Rating – 9 ½ out of 10.

  12. Truly a work of genius, isn’t it? The visuals, the acting, and most importantly, the story – brilliant.
    The climax is as intriguing as Shutter Island. It just stays in your memory for a loooooong time. Chris Nolan incepts in our consciousness in the very last scene. One of the best endings I’ve ever seen so far. Hats-off to him!

  20. Good review 🙂 and I just loooooved the movie 😀

  21. I thought the movie was ok…. 3.5/5 would be my take on it…. The theme of the movie was similar to Shutter Island and Had I not seen Shutter Island, I’d be impressed with Inception. It was a difficult concept to show to the audience and Nolan got it right, but certain parts could have been shortened while other parts could be elaborated… but I’m sure if you ask someone else, they feel different abt the movie 🙂

    Nice blog btw….

  22. I always like such movies which stretches your imagination further..The concept of modelling dreams..it was very interesting..I would love if someone makes a movie on life after death….I wonder if it was true then how the transition would be like..

  23. Awesome movie .. I saw it 3 times at satyam 🙂 …
    shutter island.. inception… i cant wait for de caprio’s next movie
