A Sublime piece of ART and sheer hardwork!!!
28 August 2012 | by babarasgharSee all my reviews

okay this is not for every joe!!! if u imagine that it took more than 12-15 minutes to just capture one second in this movie ... it took hours n hours waiting on the road side staring into NOTHINGNESS for something ... the right moment ... it took hundreds of man hour work to create those smooth transitions it took over 8 hours to cover 1000m on a vehicle which would otherwise took less than 36 secs on average it took days n days to compile all those shots ... spend hours on each frame ... developing it ... i mean this movie dnt need any story live ... script or any thing if some one realizes how much effort has gone into every second he views thats the whole story behind it ... i read few comments saying it has no story line :) what story u wana listen when u r seeing breathtakingly beautiful milky-way rising from east??? ... n someone even questioned the soundtrack :) well half of the world might not like a chinesse block buster just for the reason they couldn't understand a word ... it doesn't mean the movie was bad ... actually the viewers were ignorant ... they didn't understand it ... it was beyond their mental perception n understanding in short ... u can only appreciate something when u can see it with ur own eyes n soul ... this piece of art may be just a random compilation of various scenes with no link to it ... but for ages ... man used to worship fire and sun just because he didn't understand them properly ... one of the best video done by any time lapse videographer ...
