Absolutely Exceptional!
29 November 2009 | by (Union Territory of Pondicherry, India) – See all my reviews

I am not a festival buff, to kill the scorching heat I walked into Imax Multiplexes in Mumbai, discovered that there is a festival going on. I read about all the films programmed -one appealed to me the most was Zeiramu 2. Great luck, show was on in an hour. When I came out of the hall, my heart and mind were blown. I know nothing about this film and where it came from but wow what a discovery! I surfed net to find out more. Second shock came soon after when I discovered that it is made by an Japanese Filmmaker based in Tokyo. Keita Amemiya, never ever heard about him? My mind started wondering we talk about our Blacks and Devadas and Parineeta's and Pahelis -but what about this masterpiece? Isn't it pity that such films were distributed worldwide, millions saw it but no release in India? Is Mr. Ghai, Mr. Chopra are you listening? Indian medias wake up, Zeiramu 2 is a sign! Here is a film and a director which India should look into remaking (ripping off)!

The film is truly an eye opener what India can do to play a vital role in international cinema. So many loud talks about crossovers and here is a whisper called Zeiramu 2a and that is truly a crossover. I will eagerly wait for Amemiya's other films: Mechanical Violator Hakaider, Tweeny Witches.
