The opening shot of movie may not be the best things you have seen so far this Summer,
but thankfully, the movie kicks off tremendously after that. Without much ado, we
travel to the infamous Jurassic Park that has been functioning for over 10 years now.
The declining visitor rates along with the need of new attractions put the financial
heads behind the mark in a tussle which leads to the creation of the antagonist, the
highly intelligent hybrid.
The trailers of this movie were convincing. With a cast comprising of Chris Pratt,
who almost ruled the screen last year with Guardians of the Galaxy, we see Irrfan Khan,
playing Masrani, the owner of this family themed park. Bryce Dallas Howard, who is
fondly remembered for playing Gwen Stacy in Spiderman-3 plays an integral role. Packed
with a strong supporting cast, the movie delivers on almost all fronts.
Directed by Colin Trevorrow, who also has a cameo, the movie revolves around a
plot where an experiment goes rogue. Thankfully, for the audience, the movie
is just not about a rogue dinosaur alone but about the park. We see Chris Pratt as Owen,
and his bond with the animals. Even though all of it is understandably CGI, the scenes
never pass off as mere graphic illusion, but seem real, and this is where Jurassic World
The story is kept simple, without adding too many subplots. The only ones there are mix
easily with the pace of the movie. The park is big, better, and brilliant. Housing over
20,000 guests, the park now contains added attractions in the form of large under-water
dinosaur, which we don't get to see much, Darn! There is also a bird house which goes
rogue later in the movie, playing nicely into the climax.
Fans of the Jurassic Park trilogy are sure to be amazed with plenty of tributes and
Easter Eggs thrown in to commemorate the previous franchise. However, if you are the kid
from this century, there is still enough for you to enjoy in this movie. Unlike most dinosaur
movies these days, *cough cough Godzilla*, Jurassic World is firmly supported by intelligent
screenplay and direction.
Chris Pratt as Owen is pretty...'badass'. Intense for most of the movie, he plays his
part well. Bryce Dallas Howard gets maximum screen time and makes the most of it. Indian audiences
are in for a pleasant surprise as Irrfan Khan too has a meaty role in this one.
Not just meaty but even meaningful, unlike what Bollywood actors are usually treated to.
Seems like Irrfan has indeed carved a permanent place for himself in Hollywood.
The Humor in this movie is pretty classy. Dialogue writing is crisp and not overdone.
The 3D effects play out well, and are really not scary, Phew! Running for a little over
2 hours, this movie does far many more right things than wrong.
If you are looking for special effects and an effective script, go in for this one. You won't be disappointed.
