Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse torrent reviews

Kisaan T (ag) wrote: This movie doesn't follows the meaning of its title "AARAKSHAN" which means reservation. Instead it feeds you with the little little introductions on the subjects like effects and ill-effects of reservation systems in india, corruption link in colleges, educational style of India, etc...The movie's poster shows many taglines like FAMILY, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, AND GREED, same does the movie offers to the audiences, although known to be based on "AARAKSHAN".I tell you in a nut-shell, what happens in this movie :- A Honest and Idealistic Professor and a University Principal (Amitabh Bachhan) Anand's Life turns Problematic when he comments on the new Law actioned by the Supreme Court on the reservations of Backward Class in India for Government Colleges. His job and home are replaced by a Notorious Professor (Manoj Bajpai) Mithilesh who even steals the home of the that Principal and starts a coaching Institute there. Anand believing in the true meaning of Education, starts teaching in the Cow-Shelter just Opposite to the Coaching Centre of Mithilesh. This Cow-Home-Tutor gets Famed as time passes due to the honest Efforts of Anand and his Collegues unlike Mithilesh's Center, this sets Mithilesh on fire, forcing him to use his connections to bring down Anand's Tutor. Finally the movie ends with Anand's Ex - lover (Hema Malini) who is some Superior Government Person, setting all matters. Mercy Mithilesh is not shown arrested or beaten or being killed.And when The movie Ends you feel that the Movie was not on the subject of 'Reservations in India' , But on the Education Pattern in India, which also it fails to show clearly.I think it would have been better if the movie was made and titled on the Character of Amitabh Bachhan. It would be a nice Fictional Biopic on the life of a Teacher named Prabhakar Anand. But since it isn't so, what it is, is that a same old BHELPURI of Genre's has been presented, with the ingredients churned Unevenly by Prakash Jha. Of the Performances, Saif Ali Khan and Manoj Bajpayee maintain their acting in 3 or 4 scenes, Amitabh Bachhan Of course only needs his bold Eyes and Heavy Voice to do the Job, the most upset one was Prateik Babbar - which I felt was reciting a school play and not speaking for a movie. And Also, watching Rajeev Verma and Sourabh Sukla, I felt watching a Bollywood movie form 80s and 90s.The only one person, who looks great while delivering her Dialogues is Tanvi Azmi, as the wife of Anand, though she has very less attention among the crowded starcast, she still meets the standards.

David M (es) wrote: A cute perky little drama that's not really that funny or romantic & didn't really leave a lasting impression for me. Once the credits hit it was like I'd already forgotten it. Yawn.

Kristina C (br) wrote: It is a beautifully constructed documentary. Errol Morris is a genius in this film.

kesha B (mx) wrote: This movie was off the charts amazing. The young actors gave wonderful performances. If you want to know what the definition of doing what you feel is the right thing, this is the movie to see

Eric T (nl) wrote: Fairly bland and uninteresting. I was hoping the 80s would be Woody Allen's flawless decade, but unfortunately he has a few towards the end that are uninspired.

Michael W (es) wrote: Typically hard-edged NYC cop film of the era. Shot on location and makes the Bronx looks like a war-zone. Faced its share of litigation and protests but good cast delivers overall, although lasting impact is somewhat depressing.

Joe S (au) wrote: GREAT MOVIE. they dont make them like this anymore

Nicholas D (kr) wrote: Some funny parts, visually great, but it just lacks in charm. Perhaps I need to see it again...

William W (ru) wrote: An exceptional brink-of-war suspense thriller by Hitchcock, which bookends nicely with his later Lifeboat (as well as the two short films he made in France with actors there: Bon Voyage and Aventure malgache). The short documentary included on the DVD from 2004, Personal History: Foreign Hitchcock, excellently showed that Selznick had rights to the best-seller for years, but that Hitch had the nature of it changed completely to more represent the then-current problems the Nazis were posing England. It also stated the marriage proposal was basically the same actually used by Hitchcock himself when he had proposed to the missus. The acting and set-pieces are wonderful, and the film deserves a lot more recognition in his oeuvre than it currently ascertains.

Brad W (mx) wrote: Excellent story with some very good, credible acting. Was even more enjoyable in the fact that we just visited Alcatraz and so knew some of the stories spoken about. I enjoyed Lancaster's role and also thought the way the actors aged as the years went on was very good and well before it's time (this was made in '62).
