Wall – E in India

Wall – E was released in India yesterday on 29 August 2008. Owing to the high IMDB rating and a lot of mention in my favorite tech blogs, I went to watch the first show. Here is some bit of my experience.

Since this proved to be one hell of a movie in the US, I was expecting a lot of people to come and watch it. But I was surprised to see 90% of the hall to be empty! Then I guessed the reason behind the same as lack of hype and publicity and release of the much awaited Farhan Akhtar’s movie "Rock On!".

None the less, the movie is superb. It truly deserves its rank in IMDB top 250. The graphics are mind blowing. And the story is also good. Combining a romantic story with environmental issues proved out to be a great idea :). I loved the way they portrayed the human life outside earth. No wonder the movie broke so many records.

All in all, it’s a must watch for everyone here in India. Children, adults and senior citizens. We all need to be aware of the consequences of our carelessness towards the environment and we all need to watch movie masterpieces like these :).

However, the movie needs to be publicized better in India. What I see is that people don’t even know that such a movie has been released. They also need to create some hype. Although no point now that the movie has already been released. Another way is to release this movie in IMAX theaters in India. Currently, it’s being shown only in one IMAX theater in Mumbai. That too only 2 shows. I recommend this movie to everyone out there.

I was also able to get a photo clicked with the wall e model in Spice cinemas, Noida :). Check it out:
