Tribute to Titanic- A ship which never sank!!


TITANIC 3d

Whether or not it’s a 3d I fell in love with movie all over again. It’s mesmerizing, amazing and tearful. As there were no great movies that weekend ( I for sure didn’t want to spend money on Bitter boss or Louse full2[Pardon me if you enjoy the AK comedy] . Am sure both will be telecasted in a month’s timeJ and I know Titanic was and will be telecasted in a loop but somehow I see myself walking to the counter to buy tickets at PVR where 3D effect is meager or rather 0. With or without 3D glasses the effect was some  other than when the magnificent beauty starts sinking. That was the only scene which was blurry with out glassess. If u really want the 3D effect go to IMAX . All other theatres screening the 3D are lousy. As you all know its re-released on Apr4 2012 to commemorate the centenary of the tragedy. I couldn’t resist from praising the man behind – JAMES CAMERON and the way he executed each and every frame which grips audience’s attention. A reconstruction of the Titanic was built at Playas de Rosarito, Baja California, and scale models and computer-generated imagery were also used to recreate the sinking. Three cheers to Cinematographer Russel Carpenter and theres no need to mention how charming the love birds Kate and Leonardo are in the movie. My schooling was in a normal suburb where even English movies were released in locale language. I very well remember Titanic was first movie I saw in English in theatre. Ya I am not kidding , I even saw Jurassic Park and Mighty Joe Young in TeluguJ Well it was more fun due to obvious reasons!
The famous Titanic poster below!

I watched this movie again with same rapt and attention and emotion!.The admirable beauty of Rose makes many men go crazy for her and Jack- What to say about him- The perfect man for that role and loved him there after in many movies! So much of sweet and soft  love along with roses , butter  and honey is served to you so elegantly when you just entered high school! What more can you do than deeply falling in love with the characters and imagining that’s how love is at that tender age J That’s what happened to me when I watched Titanic in 1997. We Indians or for that case many across the countries are a bit filmy and fall in to the valley of emotions by a mere nudge!
Many people expected a better 3D view of below scene but few things never change. It was edited and truncated mercilessly back in 97 and history repeats even in the PVR of one of the largest malls in India!:)













The famous titanic pose below which is morphed/modified and tortured by many and every other person on the earth got themselves captured in this pose but nothing feels better than the real one. Movie feels fresh and I get amazed all over againJ
I danced along with Rose in Joy when she breaks the hand cuffs in order to rescue Jack. I was in rage when a less prospered person is shot dead by one of the person from captains team and then he shoots himself. I was audibly letting out a sigh then and suppressing my sigh a bit now! I was furious when Rose is commanded by the rich ruthless Fiancee and also her mother. 
I pitied her. I loved Jack and loved her dialogues when she says : “Shut up mother! The ship is sinking” when the rich lady complains about less space in the life boat !
The trauma, frustration, love, helplessness a person feels and faces when the most preserved thing he is gonna lose which is his life is shown so  heart touchingly that the first time I watched it I was in tears and after all these years when I watched I find my self fighting back tears not only when Jack dies due to icy cold water but also when captain locks him self in the cabin, when people fall from the half split ship in to the sea like lizards falling from the wall, when a baby boy alone screams at the top of his voice and Jack and Rose rescue him, people playing music irrespective of happenings, people dying , running for life not knowing where to run and what to do and when so many people some at the zenith of death , some already dead are floating hopelessly and a boat comes back searching for any one alive! The scene is very realistic and all people seem to be like just  frozen ice fallen on to the surface of  sea!
Rose lives and story ends with a new hope and with a “heart  of the ocean” diamond locket in her pocket which she throws in to the sea after narrating all the happenings in Titanic to the team searching for the diamond!
In the last scene I again felt the same rage , same emotion I felt years backwhen Young Jack and Rose meet near the clock ! I so wished it turned true and those two faces always swarm in front of my eyes and to me A perfect love story is Titanic. Never did any other movie made me so emotional !
Titanic is a imagined  story by Cameron with little dependency on few facts who was fascinated  by ship wrecks and wanted to make a movie from long.
"The story could not have been written better...The juxtaposition of rich and poor, the gender roles played out unto death (women first), the stoicism and nobility of a bygone age, the magnificence of the great ship matched in scale only by the folly of the men who drove her hell-bent through the darkness. And above all the lesson: that life is uncertain, the future unknowable...the unthinkable possible."
— James Cameron


There are many interesting facts and myths about real Titanic which you can google and read. To me it remains one of the evergreen love stories with an evergreen love song sung by Celine Dion(First song where I learnt English lyrics and practiced singing). 



This post in memory of the movie- a beauty which entangled me in its charm!
