10,000 Miles Away

Yesterday, at 8:30PM, I went to Walmart to get some whistles and reached the theater at 8:50PM. Need I say I was waiting to watch Indhiran, a Rajinikant movie in Tamil. My husband and I stood in line to get into the movie hall and one of my buddies from school joined us later. The queue in the picture is only half of what you see, the rest are inside the building.

My sophisticated husband had a few glitches with the whistles in the beginning but joined the fun-fare in no time.

The movie "Indhiran" (meaning Robot), is a must see for all those who miss the villain Rajinikant. Comedy is predictable and I was pretty impressed with the special effects in the climax scene; not just the technical aspect but also the creative side of it. One thing missing in the movie going experience is the cut out of Thalaivar (a.k.a Rajinikant).

I am still working out and enjoying my Yoga; how was your weekend?

Thanks for this lovely review. I am waiting for my husband to be a little. the minute it happens we are going to see the movie. I already read the review from another blogger friend, and he said to skip it, but he also said you cannot prevent a die hard Rajani fan from not seeing it. I am his fan, so i am hooked.
Glad you enjoyed the movie.
My weekend was good.

Rama - We happen to be one of those fans of Rajni, so no matter what, we will love his movies.

Sulagna - Weird and ridiculous clothes are part of Tamil cinema. This one compares way better than some of the predecessors.

Let me know who Dabaang is.

SG - Of course will read yours as well.

Bedazzled - I was amused by the sheer fact that there was a q'.

Shuchita - Give it a shot, but keep your expectations low. That always helps with Indian movies.

Open book - There is nothing but Rajinikant and more Rajinikant in the movie.
