Toddshit

Sweeney Todd is a kid movie which no kid can watch. The movie is like a gory nursery rhyme. The costumes, the lighting, the cinematography, the music, the acting, the direction, everything is brilliant. But what the fuck is the story? A psychopath starts killing people generally till as expected, he himself is killed? Everyone says, don’t watch the movie for the plot. I ask why?

You might like everything about this movie because everything is very classy. For example, the way Depp and Carter have delivered their lines is totally more than impressive. But you cannot like the movie as a movie because the plot is outright kiddish. In fact I refuse to call it a movie. It is a visual abstract art which is very charming but at the same time makes absolutely little sense. Whatever.

For me, the best part of watching this movie three days back at Sathyam was the intermission. I ran into Jo who plays my girl-friend in Karma, and Ashwin under whom I had one my internship about two years ago. And oh, by the way, I walked down from Sathyam to my hostel alone. Aise hi, felt like walking alone. 🙂
