Movie Night: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part : 1







"Fire Burns Brighter In The Darkness.
 
A classic is born not through the extensive CGI effects but the acting & the script beautifully enacted by the cast..It becomes even more vital when the movie is an adaptation of Gross Selling Novel of the same name...Only a few Book series have been successfully converted into franchises which have hooked the Audiences...The Hunger Games Franchise is same!!
I was lucky enough to be invited by   after winning their Pix Premier Nights Contest hosted on their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SonyPIX/. And what a pleasant surprise i had company of few close friends who had won with me!!
And even more of a surprise was i was watching it before rest of India..Special Premier of the Movie!!
 I was Amazed by the Red Carpet..The Ambience & Fun of it all....We were having Gala Time..!!
Having read the book series & seeing The Hunger Games: Catching fire courtesy Sony Pix i was super charged up..This movie with its stellar cast was really keeping me excited all day!!
Stellar Cast:


  • Jennifer Lawrence  -  Katniss Everdeen
  • Josh Hutcherson - Peeta Mellark 
  • Liam Hemsworth - Gale Hawthorne 
  • Woody Harrelson - Haymitch Abernathy - Hilarious
  • Donald Sutherland - President Snow 
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman - Plutarch Heavensbee 
  • Julianne Moore - President Alma Coin  - My favourite
  • Sam Claflin - Finnick Odair  
  • Elizabeth Banks - Effie Trinket 



The Article below has few spoilers*. 
If we burn...You burn with us!!
I was in for a surprise when movie took off with last movie's finales scenes. Katniss who is seen as a Face of Revolution wakes up from her unconsciousness to find lot of changes have taken place since she electrocuted the force field. The Movie rolls into action with various characters & confused Katniss trying to get hang of things..She is in secret District 13  hideout where she is asked to be the "Mockingjay" - A symbol for the Revolution
Knowing Katniss as she is being emotional she is reluctant but a deal is struck for safe return of captured Hunger Games Participants. Katniss struggles to balance her emotions & memories with current scenarios & politics played by both sides. Although the last book like similar franchises is broken into 2 movies albiet for commercial purposes has resulted in a slow movie. Among the few action scenes Katniss only gets one..but she leaves her mark in it..Literally!! The Makers in the series have taken a jib at celebrity packaging & at Reality TV, & in this movie Propoganda media marketing. Heymitch in his own way rocks the stage with his role & Pultarch have played their parts well..Even Moore as President Coin is impressive..Jennifer Lawrence has played her part well & suited the character perfectly.  I did see a few bored out faces in the theatre..Probably the expectations were too high after last movie. Since the movie is part 1 of 2 movie finale the creators had to keep the script for the next part...Hoping that part is as impressive as the first 2 movies. For me i enjoyed the movie as i have enjoyed reading the Suzzane Collins Best Seller Series. I look forward to the second part of the series...The movie is for True Book Fan & over Black Friday weekend this movie will garner good business in Western Markets.





Mockingjay is a symbol of Hope Belief & Revolution...Lets Hope for the best from the Part 2!!  




Thanks to Team   for the Super time & Super movie experience like no other!!

Travel:
The term "travel" may originate from the Old French word travail..Travel is just a way of life...It sets you free as Google would put it as:
Journey is just like Life never ending...It doesn't matter how much the Distance but the experience earned during the travel that matters..
Travel for me is the Journey through all its phases. Traveling to a particular place for me includes the entire journey...

The Journey doesn't mean the Destination..Its the experience that counts..
Travelling makes not only makes me see places but know people..customs & traditions..!!
I love seeing new places...Seeing new locations people & Customs...If i had to go somewhere i would do the following: 
  
I love experiencing new food, new drinks & experience stuff i haven't done. Life does teach you a lot!!
Travel opens up whole new dimension for us all...For me personally i get my time at a place where i can get lost in my own world.. A utopian world of my own. Travel gives me that high!!
 
Travel changes the way you look at life as a whole. It makes you more in tune with life. I try to break daily monotonic nature of work with going on small trips to places i have yet to be seen. The above Video really inspires me..
World is just empty if you havent travelled. I have my bucket list which i am planning to tick every time as at the end of the life i dont want to say..
Exploring places.. yet unknown untrodden is my key..I will travel soon...And let my foot on places untrodden. And find out my piece of heaven soon!!
Travel therefore continues for eternity...
