when i saw this movie trailer on youtube i had absolutely no idea about Aaron ralston.i never heard about him ,i had not known him at all and had no idea of what had happen to him.
i saw the trailer where a guy goes on an adventure to Utah desert on his bike and his right hand gets stuck under a rock.so this much what i got from the trailer.but since the movie was directed by one of my fav danny boyle i wanted to deep into this film.i also downloaded this film from the net and saw it.
after watching this film i searched Aaron Ralston on google and gained knowladge about him.
its indeed one if the best film i have seen so far ,indeed a story of human spirit ,triumph over the odds.this film inspires you in many ways but it also tells you that may b your are dieing but world moves on.
danny has done a great job in direction as he is been successful in portraying the story of aaron ralston on screen.james franco as aaron has again defines realism in acting.both danny and james had gone through the real aaron tapes when he was trapped under the rock.before displaying those to danny and james aaron had only shown those video’s to close friends and family.but i think it was a great move by james and danny by watching those video’s hand on.i guess its very important for a director and an actor to really feel from the heart and visualising in mind the real events as it took place.its very important for an actor ,director and writer to put themselves in the shoes of the subject to make it visible on screen.
after watching this film i must say that the writer,director and an actor 95% successed in what they were doing.i should not say 100% coz there were some visible mistakes indeed but we can over look those mistakes as every one is a human after all.
AR Rehman’s music again as always amazing and really gives u the feel of the scenes in the film.it will still not give u the complete feel of rehman’s compostion in the film but if u download the music online or buy an album you will realise how good the compositions are.
Rehman has been nominated for an oscar so as danny and james for there work in 127 hours.over all this film has been nominated for 6 oascars and i am not sure if its gona win in all 6 categories but it will surely win an oscar.
its a moving film ,which will keep you on the edge of your seat.its an inspiration ,a story of a man with no hope but who decided to make his own luck but making an effort.
one thing which i did nt like in this film is an arm amputation scene.
watch an arm amputation scene below
when i saw this scene on youtube i didnt like it.believe me i was expecting a lot from danny into this scene.its not up to my expectation though still good.some people fainted in the cinema halls as they saw this scene.but accourding to me there as little more margin of some more gore,blood and realism in the scene.but anyways its still a disturbing scene.
over all a great film ,simple but strong subject ,a true story,well executed,well directed,outstanding music and yes an inspiration
my rating 4 out of 5.
