It was like going back to my school days and seeing Johnny Weissmuller. After seventy years, I saw Tarzan and Jane in a movie yesterday.
Let me start at the beginning. My friend Ramesh and I had gone to see a Hindi film but were late reaching the theater. By the time we reached there, the management had decided to cancel the show as there were no viewers. We were too late! We were told that had we been just ten minutes early, we could have seen the film despite being only two viewers.
Having gone that far, we enquired about what other films were running in the multiplex and found that The Legend Of Tarzan was about to start in a few minutes and decided to see it despite not originally wanting to see it at all. And guess what? Including the two of us, there were only four viewers for the movie. I suspect that the weather, it is raining cats and dogs here, should be blamed for this phenomenon!
The experience was mixed. To start with, the film was in 3D and I am always uncomfortable wearing the extra pair of glasses to see the film. Other than that, the special effects were rather exaggerated but it was compensated for by the storyline and action. Any way, for me, it was like being a young lad again and I came away from the theater with a lot of nostalgia for those Black and White films with Tarzan.
If you would like that kind of an experience, I would recommend your seeing it if you can.
