12 Angry Men

Can anyone believe this? An entire movie, which is shot inside  a single room would become one of the classics, and yet become a top grosser?  Can a 1957  movie  still be relevant?  Is that possible?

As an Indian Movie fanatic this gratifying flick of Russo Brothers is like a cup of ice cream after a hot summer noon.

The directors have followed a creative technique of famed Indian Director SS Rajamouli. SSR released his Giga budget Bahubali in two parts, the first parts ends with a question "Why Kattappa killed Bahu?"

This thrilling question made the fans wait for an year to watch the next half. If you look closely Russo Brothers too did the same, they turned half of the super heroes in to dust particles, giving hope to the audience that the fallen heroes will be back in the second part Endgame.

Actually engaging the global audience is pretty serious issue but the directors and their crew did it with ace. Endgame it is actually a wow.

This super hero flick not only meet the audience needs, it surpasses at times.

This part begins as if it is a dystopian flick, the remaining super  heroes mourn the loss and the could not do anything about the loss yet longing to revive their friends.

Begins with Hawkeye and his loss, which turns him to be killing machine hunting the war lords those who are afflicting the poor people.

In a U turn the heroes assemble themselves to bring back the fallen heroes and common folks. This plan is unexpectedly intercepted by Thanos, which drives the audience to the edge of their seat.

Apart from the award winning CG and VFX, this movie has a very strong emotional presence.

Three of the major superheroes have gone! Two of them KIA and one gets retired, what more we got a new Captain, that too a black-american  captain, wow!

The time heist technique tells us that at any point of time any of the fallen superheros can be brought back. It is a creative license indeed to bring back the Mega Stars of Marvel Universe, and will rev the engines of marvel films for couple of decades ahead!

So don't loos heart your heroes will be back in the forthcoming movies!

Believe me your going to love this flick!
