SPLIT by M.NIGHT SHYAMALAN – a review.

WOOO !! Shyamalan is back in form..

What a thriller, it had me by the guts throughout mostly due to James McAvoy disturbingly realistic performance.

In fact the plot of the movie is linear – Kevin suffers from DID – Dissociative identity disorder also more commonly known as multiple personality disorder for which there is no conclusive treatment yet in medical science. Shyamalan takes this concept, to another level in a very well written screenplay but it is James McAvoy who burns the screen like no one else did before and keeps you on the edge of the seat throughout the movie.

Kevin kidnaps three girls and holds them hostage in his bunker or hideout. It is the interactions between him and the girls which forms the major part of the movie and what could have failed miserably but for JAMES McAvoy.

There is a scene in the movie, when one of the timid and milder personality called “Heidwig” talks to one of the kidnapped gitls and tells her that he likes to listen to music and dance in his room, which has a window. The girl, whose flashbacks reveal that she was strong and intelligent as a child too, immediately asks him to take her to the room so that she can watch him dance in order to get a chance to flee through the window.

James McAvoy outdoes himself in the particular scene, the way he dances and his facial gestures will send shiver down your spines. Out of all his identities, his 24th identity is the most dangerous and comes later in the movie.

Check this movie out to see a great actor thoroughly enjoy and have a blast at what he does best. Sure to be considered as a cult classic performance post few years..

After multiple flops. Shyamalan is back and Yes, Do Not Miss the twist in the end !

Raees is entertaining but BJP’s problem with it…

This is about an highly offending blog by a BJP spokesperson’s analysis of Raees and my take on it.

https://swarajyamag.com/blogs/raees-is-entertaining-but-here-are-my-problems-with-it

A website whose name tells it all, written by an author who was nominated as BJP’s Mumbai spokesperson in December 2016 and has also worked as a creative consultant for Reliance Broadcast Network Ltd apart from penning a few fiction novels. The author also co-authored a book “India aspires” with none other than the union minister Nitin Gadkari.

A para such as above when you forward such articles, is a must and you owe it to all, if you think such preposterous and divisive articles are a must read.

A few pointers –

1. Abdul Latif rose to his peak during the BJP and Janta Dal alliance under Chimanbhai Patel. BJP could not do much, as it was Patel who ruled the roost.

2. No one denies the fact that he was nothing short of a criminal but the movie definitely does NOT woo minority community, for that matter ask the GOD himself, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan was it the same in case of Deewar where he potrayed Haji Mastan, the dockyard rat ?. Even today it is considered as a cult classic by Indians.

3. It is mentioned that Raees meets an end that potrays him as an victim of state policies – what crap! Mr.Bachchan, the painfully politically correct actor, died so many such similar deaths as a gangster leaving all moviegoers in tears – so was he wooing minorities too.. remember allahrakha scene in coolie shot at haji ali ?

4. The last two paras of the article are downright communal and not the intent of movie makers but the intent of the author is well exposed. As for so-called intellectuals shifting to being self-proclaimed upholders of secularism, it is the same as self-proclaimed upholders of nationalism who daily beat their chest crying out loud how patriotic they are.

Watch a movie for what it is supposed to do – entertainment, stop being an armchair politico and do not spoil our environment for the sake of our children with such fake articles.
