Epic is the word, 7 August 2014
Author: Raghavibaggy-Drawers from Islamabad

First and foremost this movie is not for everyone. It was evident when by one hour 25% of the theater became empty. But what they missed!!! Its a 3 hours movie (not very uncommon in bollywood) and every minute was different from the other. It was like watching a very Indian classical concert where they start off slow and then keep building the flow and then break the walls of the music theater with their crescendo at the end. Its not a movie with linear plot, a very complex story spanning between centuries and places and if someone asks me what the story was, honestly I wont be able to narrate (they can read the book though which is a masterpiece). The visualizations were amazing be it in the ship or Neo Seoul, the sound effects completely shook hand with the visualization. The acting was great, costumes were great (seemed a little fake at times). The fight sequences, romance (both varieties), music all were well so well mixed in the film that it was like a nice giant cocktail. If you are a fan of movies where you can not decide which genre it belongs to then you should just not miss it.
