InterstellarWhen the time for human race is running out, a group of space explorers undertake an important journey that might give our race a new hope of life. This is a simple one-liner of Christopher Nolan’s latest film “Interstellar”. The most striking aspect of this space odyssey is the cohesiveness that is evident throughout. When it comes to entertainment, there is everything one could ask for being present in this film.

“Interstellar” has in its wings a host of actors with substance. These actors along with Nolan’s cinematic acumen have once again proven what it means to give a creatively brilliant and at the same time an engrossing no-nonsense film. The film story builds from a point where mankind has been struggling with various hindrances to their livelihoods.

Cooper (Mathew McConaughey) is a father of two and importantly an astronaut with NASA. When his kids are a mixed bag at school and strange things happen in his daughter’s room. When his daughter leads him to his next space mission after his previous mission ended in a disaster, things start to heat up.

What to the space explorers do and do they become successful in their mission is all about in this film which has a staggering run time of 170 minutes. The twist in the tale comes only in the climax and that’s why this film scores heavily over its peers.

In terms of visual extravaganza, after “Gravity” it is this film that gives the feel of orbiting in outer space. The graphics are of top notch and there are few sequences which are dramatically thrilling that keeps the viewer in awe.

Like in any commercial film, there is a villain, sentiment, comedy and romance. The icing on the cake is actually the final few minutes of the film when Mathew McConaughey discovers his whereabouts and the unraveling of the mystery that takes place in the beginning of the film.

Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema is absolutely brilliant especially in the scenes where the truck whizzes into the corn fields is artistically captured. Editor Lee Smith would have a tough job in his hand to bring this enormous subject into a 170 minute film and there is hardly a scene that is deemed unnecessary in the film. Hans Zimmer plays to the mood of the film perfectly. Anne Hathway plays a pivotal role in the film while Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain play important characters that help the story continue in its track.

“Interstellar” is a class apart and Christopher Nolan proves his class with authority.
