A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. Written by
Actor Phaldut Sharma, who voiced as an goofy Indian astronaut, 'Shariff', chose the song "Mera Joota Hai Japani" for humming himself when the director asked him to play something light. The director thought the character would put the audience at ease and get a few laughs before the actual story kicked off. The lyrics of the song literally mean, "My shoes are Japanese, my pants are English, the red hat on my head is Russian, and yet my heart is Indian" - figuratively saying that an Indian, wherever he goes, whatever he eats or wears, at the very heart he'll always be an Indian. It is a classic Hindi song from Shree 420 (1955). See more »

As many other reviewers here, I have no clue as to which movie the "prof reviewers" have seen.
Apparently it's not the same movie that i saw.
What i saw, was stunning visuals, bad story telling, bad story writing, one dimensional characters, and a ton of supposed realism gone out the window.
I felt like the movie tried to sell me on something that could be real... and i found that it showed me a fairy tale without much realism.
The plot was so thin, and the realism of the movie so low, that i know for sure i will never watch this movie again. Because unlike a lot of other movies, it will never have anything new for me, or interesting. And when you have seen it once, you can sum it up again in 10 seconds or less.
Do me a favour, and never ever pay full price for this pos...
