Years ago, a movie came out on the big screen which was about a robot that comes from the future to avoid a  nuclear war. I remember being excited about the movie, primarily because it had  an Austrian immigrant with bulging muscles. Years later while watching the movie on TV,  realization dawned upon me that the movie is timeless. Even after 20 years, the effects do  not look campy and Indian movies still have another 10 years to go before achieving  technical excellence shown in the Terminator series. Avatar is another movie in the same league that many will term as a ‘game changer’. A movie  that comes along once every decade and changes the perception people have about what cinema  can achieve. Avatar is a movie that we will be seeing 20 years hence and nodding in  agreement that moviemaking jumped a few notches after this movie. On the face of it, Avatar is the eternally simple story about good Vs evil and the victory of right over wrong. Avatar is the story of a underdog finding his true calling, defeating the bad guy, saving the world and getting the dame. But then, it is not about the story. Avatar the movie, has one objective, to take you on a tour of a world  so stunning that it would literally blow your socks off. Avatar is based in Pandora, a dream world which looks more like pre-historic earth. The  place is full of creatures that resemble T-Rex, Pterodactyls and other dinosaur lookalikes. Pandora is also the source of a precious metal called Unobtanium which obviously is very very expensive. The only road block between  man and unlimited supply of riches are the Na’vi- blue skinned natives of the planet Pandora. Ex-Marine Jake Scully has been chosen to infiltrate the Na’vis and gain the trust of the tribe from the inside. The humans plan to do this using the Avatar program, that essentially is a robot that is made by mixing the human and the Na’vi genes. The movie then goes into overdrive as we learn the ways of the Na’vi and we see Jake Scully transform from a Ex-marine into one of them. Like I said before, it’s not about what the story is but how it is presented. Right from the  word go, we are asked to embark upon a journey in the wonderful world of Pandora. James Cameron has used this technology to provide depth to  the wide screen and added another dimension to the way we feel and consume the environment. Most of the times it’s whats in the background that catches your attention; one twig of a tree becoming fluorescent, flower-like creatures falling all around, etc. Pandora is, ladies and  gentlemen, magical. The technicians behind the movie have painstakingly taken each and every frame in the movie and perfected it. James Cameron has taken the cinema canvas and made it larger, much larger than it has ever been. Pathbreaking or not, game changing or not, this is definitely entertaining. My only regret was the poor uni-dimensional characters and surprisingly weak story line. 15  years in the making, I hoped for a better, stronger tale to tell. The characters conveniently change their behavior and character building is atrociously neglected. No  matter how good a story teller you are, you need to have a good story to tell, right? Nevertheless, the movie keeps you engaged. More than wondering about what is going to happen next, you find yourself wondering what other fantastic visuals are you going to witness. The visuals and the technicalities are far too over powering and more than overshadow the week points of the movie. Pathbreaking VFX. Don’t miss it [rating:4] Contributed by Rajesh Bysani

    great entertaining and a pathbreaking movie..
    I think Cinema is all about getting immersed in the world of fiction and completely forgetting the real world in which we live.And this movie manages to achieve exactly that as one virtually gets lost in the fascinating dream world of Avatar……..Hats off to the team behind the making of this gem of a movie.

    James Cameron has done it again after 12 years (TITANIC was released in 1997) though this time he takes us to an imaginary world of humans fighting the Navi tribe (A hybrid species between man and animals. Subjectively speaking with no favoritisms, the story idea, special effects, graphic, action and make-up of the artists is commendable.

    The idea is old but well written. Jake(Sam Worthington), a warrior is employed, after the death of his brother, to spy on the Navi tribe so that the humans can end their civilization and rule them. Jake is promised that he would get new legs after the mission is over. Jake lands aboard Pandora(a spacecraft), a moon of the planet of Polyphemus(about 4.3 light years from earth) and lands among the Navi’s. Jake meets a female Navi, Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) who finds in him a ‘pure spirit’ and they become friends. Neytiri tells Jake all about the tribe and even their sacred beliefs. They fall in love. Jake spying on the Navi tribe partly destroys them realizing that he has to ‘Save the Navi’s’. Jake is in the impression that he can negotiate a deal between the humans and the Navi’s but he is ditched by the former. Later he returns as the Navi Avatar and saves them, in the end choosing to live with them rather than ‘humans’ alongside Neytiri.

    The actors have done a great job. The special effects are awesome. James Cameron had to wait for years for the technology he needed for his script. The movie is full of innovative thoughts, emotions, action, and above all a visual extravaganza, which is very interesting and full of curiosity. James Cameron is definitely now ‘1’ of my favorite’ directors.

    “Sooner or later one has to wake up” – the movie title opening dialogue is thoughtful. The movie alludes the victory of Nature over Man and man befriending Nature. The movie ends with Jake narrating himself on a Video. This is appreciable. I rate the film as 4.5 out of 5.

    Hollywood is surely finding a big target segment in India.

    Almost everyone seems to have forgotten James Cameroon’s eariler classic ‘Alien’ – I mean everytime it is proclaimed in the ads of Avtaar “From the director of TITANIC’… Whras Cameroon has used many of the machines, characters and events from ‘Aliens’ [I’m not criticising him for repeats, just mentioning] – the helicopter pilot, the opening scene with crew getting up from deep sleep, the fighting machine contolled by the human’s movements form inside and Sigourni Weaver herslf!! Even the second-last fight bet the beast and this walking machine is on same lines of ‘Alien’ with S Weaver fighting off the alien …IT IS A PITY NO ONE MENTIONS ALIEN…OR FOR THAT MATTER the original star wars triology; is public memory so short? on the other is a better movie than ‘koi mil gaya’…!!

    “A V A T A R” – The movie is so special right from its name (Ever wonder how on earth could a big Hollywood movie be named that way???).

    For me, its not just an entertainer for a couple of hours.

    I think, by showing the vast lush green forest and all sorts of life forms living together, what he intended to show us all is, “Its time for us to wake up and protect nature and be a part of it, not to try to master it”

    The “Home tree” (A tree so gigantic that u can’t imagine – a whole tribe of people live, dine and die in the hollow of the bark of that tree) symbolized the Entire nature on our dear Earth which we are so cheerfully hurting every moment!

    The bond “Sahelu” shows the beautiful blending of human (Navi is the human there!) into the life of every other creature (whether it is a land animal “Thanator” or a bird “Banshee” or even a TREE !!!).

    Their (Navi’s) level of communication is much more advanced, than that of ours, because, they have the same standard of communication across all creatures (which means, I can communicate with any animal or bird or even a tree if I were to be a human there by using my nerve fibres). Vocal and visual communication pales into secondary modes of communication there.

    My understanding of the movie is that
    Mr.Cameroon wants us to realize the importance of nature with all its creatures (wether wild or tamed) and most importantly he wants us to be one set of creatures like many others in the whole kingdom of creatures. Mastering the nature is a bad thing and this is what we should teach our children and childrens’ children, if you want to give them a better and a safer world to live in !

    Hats off to Avatar … A visual Encyclopedia in itself !!!

    I hope that the movie is successful in the truest sense of it, if it could make atleast one viewer per show think about nature and its values, seriously and ofcourse, It sure would rake in Millions of dollars, but that’s a different story altogether !

    Its never the special effects ,but the logic or the story line that binds the special effects to make a movie that is a delite to watch,and this movie is one of those very few.

    AVATAR is by far one of the Best Film I’ve seen in my life. James Chameron is God, in fact, he has gone a step ahead of God by bulding a world even God could not imagine.
    Friends plz go n watch only in theater.
