    Talking 'Avatar' - Remake of 'Vietnam Colony' !!!!

    What is the Talk of Town now? Whats the whole world is talking about? Be it Media, Newspapers, Tv, InfyBlogs, BB, your friends circle, everybody is talking about one and only one thing. - A V A T A R

    I had been to bangalore for the weekend and saw this Ever hyped picture. Avatar is named as the "Movie of the millennium" and the top ranker in imdb list. Even the critics are all praise to this movie. Each one is praising cameroon to the sky. But would you kill me if i say AVATAR is the hollywood version of an old Malayalam Movie?

    Yes. Avatar is the hollywood version of an old malayalam movie. A Mohanlal starrer, Siddique-Lal directed, movie called VIETNAM COLONY!!!

    Now wipe out the "What the Fa" expression from your face and lend me your ears.

    After 15 minutes into the movie i realized that, AVATAR is VIETNAM COLONY RELOADED


    To start of with, let me give you and Intro about Vietnam Colony, if you have no clue about it. This is an old malayalam movie which was released when i was a kid. The story line is based on a colony named as Vietnam Colony, where only gundas, goons, and below poverty line people lives. This colony is situated in the centre of the place and a construction company owns this colony. But the residents are not willing to vacate the place as they dont have any other place to go. Then the company makes a smart move by sending one person (Mohan Lal) to the colony, to be one among them and to tactfully vacate the people. But knowing the reality and by empathizing on the poor residents over there, the Man who was sent by the company, stands for the colony people and fight back against the company.

    Striking something? Not Yet? Now replace the Vietnam Colony and the poor residents as the people in Pandoras World. Replace the construction company folks as those scientists. Replace Mohanlal as the Hero of Avatar. Now you got it.

    In Avatar, the hero (sorry , i dono his name) goes to Pandoras world standing for the scientists and be one among the residents. Later on he realizes the value of their existence and fight back against the ones who had sent him. There are plenty of scenes matching with Vietnam colony.

    In the begininng, grace would tell the hero that she was looking for his brother and have no confidence that he would finish the mission. Similarly, in VC, Construction Company first doubts about the talent of Lal and worry if he could evacuate the gunds and other localites from their place.

    In VC, When Mohanlal Reaches the colony, at first, he would have an argument with the Auto Rikshaw guy regarding the fare. The Auto guy tries to indulge in a fist fight with Lal. Then the Main Rowdy of Colony, Rauthar, comes and stand behind Lal. Seeing him, the Auto guy would flee and Lal thinks that the Auto guy got scared of him only and when he turns back, he would see the gunda standing behind him. Similarly in Avatar, when they are in the pandoras world for the first time, an Elephant kinda creature tries to attack the hero and flee by seeing a much bigger animal behind him. Hero thinks the elephant got scared by him and when he turns back he see a much more bigger creature.

    In VC, the person who had been sent by the company falls in love with a girl of the colony. Similarly in Avatar, he fall for a girl from the pandoras world. At one point of time, the slum people realize that he is a person from the construction company and attacks Lal. Then the girl comes for his help. Similarly in Avatar, tsu tey tries to kill the hero and its the girl who saves the hero.

    In VC, during the climax, Lal gets back to the company and tell that he is no more working for them and then the company people comes to the colony. At the climax, Lal is fighting against them along with the other Colony people.In Avatar, along with the hero, whole community is fighting against the villains.

    There are much more scenes which Resembles the old Malayalam movie. I am not saying Avatar is a remake of Vietnam Colony, but i am saying Avatar is the Hollywood version of VC. Cameroon has added lots of stuff to the western audience as well as to other viewers that you almost forget this point. Now that is an Interntational Talent which makes you forget about the original Plot. If Cameroon again take AVATAR after 10 years, i am sure he would add in essentials so that no one would notice that its still Avatar.

    There are lot of wonderful scenes in AVATAR and Graphics is at its best. Those wild creatures and the flying dragons were too good. I would want to get rid of my RTR now and need a personalized vehicle like the one Hero captures during the end.

    While coming out of the multiplex, the first thing that came to my mind is that instead of spending 500Rs at PVR Cinemas, i could have easily taken the dvd of Vitenam colony for 15 Rs and could have enjoyed it once again. This is James Cameroon's most hyped movie and the film after 11 Oscar Award winner TITANIC. It tooks 11 years for cameroon to make this movie, a reality and now i wonder if Cameroon was watching the DVD of Vietnam Colony throughout these 11 years

    Who would have had a hearty laugh watching these? None other than Mohanlal and Siddique-Lal. Or would siddique-lal have felt bad after seeing that their plot has gone international and have renowned Worldwide fame? It pains you know. Even a chotta psychic blogger like me felt bad when i got the articles which i have wrote in Infyblogs as a forward to me. (Now stop laughing loud and making fun of me. It has happened)

    Well, If you havent watched Vietnam Colony, then you are Lucky. Avatar is a new Experience to you.
    If you have watched Vietnam Colony already, and dint even recognize this until i wrote here, then praise the perfection and technicalities.
    If you have watched Vietnam Colony and Already found out this similarity in the theatre itseld, congrats for your out of box thinking.

    Okay We all know the story but the way it presented is different and that makes all the difference. Story based I am alright but the techonolgy and graphics used in it is brilliant. I went to watch it in IMAX 3D and it was amazing. I still think this is a movie of decade.
