It is a complex game of three psychotic criminals on a murder trail and an individual's way through the maze of events.
It's time that the cult status of Bollywood as the only source of quality Hindi Cinema is being challenged by the new wave of independent filmmakers, who are passionately bringing out-of-the-box thinking and modern professionalism to the table. Here comes such a venture called STATION by critically recognized writer and director, Bangalore-based Saad Khan and the venture capitalist-turned-producer, Sumit Ghosh. The theme of Station The Film focuses on crime and its consequences, spun in a riveting plot and characters driven by it. The story begins when a deal has to go down and three assassins have to take charge. The chosen action's hot spot is an abandoned railway Station which is 40 kilometers away from an unidentified town. However, Station is no run-of-the-mill story of a chase, encounters, and escapes it is a complex game of three psychotic criminals on a murder trail and an individual's way through the maze of events. What transpires after the trio reaches the Station is going to be an interesting watch.
From the Trailer, Station is about crime, lust, deceit, retaliation, exploring the darkest of human emotions. Saad Khan first shot to limelight with the screening of his short film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008. He brings the same energy into Station The Film in the form of a well-paced and entertaining thriller. The bigger surprise comes from the all-new débutant cast, primarily from Bangalore. In most cases, it is hard to gauge that it is their first stint as actors. The performances of Kanika Batra, Siddhanth K.S., Sameer Kevin Roy, Hardik Sha, and Rahul Dev Shetty are particularly noteworthy.
The makers have not left a stone unturned in putting their creativity on to celluloid. The RED MX camera has created the effect the crew wanted. In addition, the offbeat, characteristically refreshing background score in contemporary pop, rock, jazz, and metal adds an urban feel to the movie.
Overall, Station is going to be a good refreshing watch - a film with a defined story line!

"WHY?" is the big question
"WHY?" is the big question. Why does Night Shyamalan does this to the movie goers each time. If this was his attempt to win back his estranged audience, he should try harder the next time. Messing up with original ideas is one thing; but, adapting a world famous TV series and THEN messing it up takes a lot of talent! Against the backdrop of a weak storyline, performance was the biggest shocker, closely followed by the direction. The 'human element' in the movie was so expressionless and staid that Shyamalan could have done much better with some computer graphics. Precocious Aang appears more like a naive school kid. Dev Patel looked out of place, so did Jackson Rathbone and Cliff Curtis. In fact, the entire cast looked confused. The settings and special effects failed to reach the epic proportions of the original work and seemed rather grim. I haven't seen the 3D version, but can certainly say it won't do any wonders either. In line with various other reviewers, I would suggest, if you really wanna watch this, wait for the DVDs.
For Shyamalan, taking into account the fate of this part, he should seriously consider dropping the sequels.
Miles ahead of all preceding science fiction thrillers!
Yes, he does it again! Ever since DiCaprio began shedding his lover-boy image, he has made some priceless contributions to the world of cinema. Two powerful performances in the same year is known as a work very well done. Throughout the movie, he maintains his predominance as the protagonist without being dwarfed by th...e intriguing storyline or the mighty special effects. Within the initial couple of minutes, he connects with the audience and takes them along on his journey through the next two hours or so. As for others, Joseph Gordon has done his best and Tom Hardy exceeded expectations.
Partly, this all comes from Nolan's own construct of the movie. Quantum Mechanics (a branch of physics) is where the science and religion intersect. This is, where the difference between the real & virtual dissolves and life in itself becomes a layered dream. Nolan's work drinks deeply from these accepted postulates of physics, path-breaking artistry (Esher's lithographs), and the tenets of the modern neuroscience (psychological implications of the loose ends and hypnosis), putting him miles ahead in the league of the lead sci-fi filmmakers. He has put together a compelling job of simplifying these concepts for an average movie-goer, while fantastically tweaking it in his own unique style, 'Your mind is the scene of crime.' He hasn't deprived his film of some very convincing action, either. In a way you can take this flick as 'The Matrix' built on the emotional foundation of 'Memento.' It can do to Nolan, what 'Avatar' did to Cameroon at the Oscars, except that it may fair much better. Leo, in his turn, may loose out to the likes of Colin Firth in 'Single Man' or better, be cannibalized by his own performance in 'Shutter Island.' Nevertheless, he has achieved his target already.
Since the promos first hit the screens last year, the expectations ran high from a filmmaker, who gave us from psychological heavyweights, like 'Memento' to the adrenalin-pumping 'The Dark Knight,' finally culminating into the masterwork, called 'Inception'!
