Power packed movies - power packed performances
17 February 2014 | by (Tanzania) – See all my reviews

What a Movie. What a Story. Nevertheless, a tragic ending but I found it kept me at the edge of my chair wanting to know what is going to happen next. The English sub titles assisted me very much to understand the movie perfectly and the perfect way the main star cast moves about in the entire story.

I saw this movie and the second part a few days earlier and literally had my eyes moist. Tragic ending for both the movies is truly disappointing. Just as the earlier reviewer mannin11(Bahamas) has stated in the review dated 22-oct-2011the story is about a rough and tough guy and a well bred decent girl. H too belongs to a well to do family though, for whatever reasons, he opted for this reckless life. Ultimately, something does touch him that brings him closer to Babi who doesn't understand anything about him but thinks H to be a usual guy looking around for someone to fool around with. Her innocence and frank childish behavior bites through H who seems to fall in love with her. I get a feel that H truly understands love only when he deflowers Babi and then tries to woo her with favors and the sorts. In my view H expects only love in his life. Rest of it comes secondary. His tragedy in losing his mother to the man she loves and living with her boyfriend rather than with her own family is something that disturbs him a lot and leads him to more frantic search for true love. This love it appears he finds in Babi who finally reciprocates though I would say is only puppy love when H is madly in love with her. The expression on his face and attitudes when Babi is disturbed or troubled by anything has been caught very well. Truly Mario will become a great star in future. For H action speaks louder than words and that is not disliked by almost all.

I also saw the second part which brought in more moistness to my eyes. I was truly expecting H and Babi to reunite forgetting the past and forgiving all misgivings. They do come closer but the same height in that love does not seem to reach. Moreover, the sub titles in English language are very poor and bad hence could not understand the dialogs well. I disliked the story of H getting connected to Gin who actually stands no class when compared to Babi. In the second part both show immense maturity. Though H still continues to have a lot of love for Babi, still she doesn't seem to be able to convey back the same. H is still hurt but still continues. In fact, I would have been happier to watch H of now taking his life more seriously and taking up a job or completing his studies. What he was doing in London for two years is anyone's guess. Time wasted is time gone. If at all H really loved Babi, (he does know) but he should understand better and try to come up to her expectations irrespective of whether she finally accepts him or not.

I am requesting IMDb and other officials if they could contact the story writer, producer and director of these two movies if they could come out with a third part wherein H and Babi finally reunite and become one forever. After this is what Love stories are all about – that they live happily ever after.

Love conquers all. So goes the saying. And I would love to see such an ending. In case it is ever made please e-mail me this information and I shall somehow download the same and watch it. Oh, yes, and please ensure good English sub titles.

I also saw Mario's another movie "UNIT 7" with excellent sub titles in English and here too Mario has performed well as Detective Angel. Good Acting and keep going kid.
