Earth resources to sustain its own limited population are depleting fast and a space exploration voyage is taken by a group of scientists and a robot headed by a ex-NASA pilot to search for new world to habitat by our people. With 'Time' playing an important character here.
Instead of Wally Pfister, Hoyte van Hoytema is entrusted with the job is the former was away directing his directorial debut 'Transcendence'. The new worlds which we are shown here are less of a CGI but, more like the world which we already live in with few atmospheric and demographic differences ant that is captured brilliantly in his lens.
Music and sound-editing
Nolan's area of interest after direction and his frequent collaborator Hans Zimmer comes up with fresh background score and the sound-editing right from dust storms to docking to space station to anything minute is done brilliantly.
Lee Smith is the editor and even after the movie being longer than more than two and a half hours, it is engrossing from the moment you step into the theatre. Every scene is related to what is going to happen in the future or what has happened in the past.
Plot details weren't leaked until preview shows and made on a budget less demanding than the Batman triology, this movie is a well-crafted master-piece.
I am always skeptical about few directors about how a couple of directors can keep their audience engaged throughout the length of the movie with subject matters which they take up. Christopher Nolan is one such director along with S S Rjamouli. He is really focussed about what he has to show with no fooling around and keeps us engaged with the proceedings till the end.
I think for the hundred odd Rs I paid, I got to see a movie which was worth more than a few hundreds. Its a visual spectacle and emotionally engaging science-fiction drama.
Watch it if you are game for something which you don't usually see and will probably never would see for a long time. Prefer the nearest IMAX screen.
