Last week I watched "The Shawshank Redemption".. Wasn't a great title - so was hesitant to watch it. But somehow started watching it as we didn't have anything better to do on a Sunday evening..:) It is really true that we shouldn't be judging a book by its cover. I guess the main objective of the movie is to feed the viewers with HOPE. Hope to look for something better in our wonderful life, all the time, irrespective of what the current scenario is.. Actors in the movie were at their best. Movie was loaded with unexpected events, twists and turns.. Not even close to a normal movie, I would say..
I didn't expect Tim Robbins (Hero of the movie!!) to escape through a small hole from his prison cell. Surprising factor is that he uses a very small tool to get out of the prison (he uses the tool to dig a hole on the wall just to fit a person of his size). Evidently that proved his perseverance to escape in an attempt to get back to his life without bars - ofcourse with an extensive amount of smartness (he gets posters from his co-prisoner to cover up the hole).
Not many movies leave us with a positive attitude after watching them. This movie for sure is a movie that makes you feel very positive about things around you.. It really makes you appreciate the things that you have.. Not many movies motivate you.. But this movie, for sure, motivated me to make sure that my hopes are always high - no matter what.. Hats off to the director!!! Awesome storyline and a MUST watch movie..
God.. I love my life!!! It takes someone or something, from time to time, to make you realize how lucky you are and how grateful you should be for the life you live.. hmmmm.. Wonderful isn't it!!!
