Love Story 2050 "inspiring" promo

Came across a pretty interesting promo of Harry Baweja's "Love Story 2050". Something different ? For Bollywood yes for sure !!!! And different ? we love, Original ? we are surprised, Inspired ? disappointed, but who cares, if its got good ingredients then chalta hai. Love Story 2050 promo has the first and the last qualities.



I think this is a very grand debut for Harman Baweja, and if he's talented, then he has the looks to pull it off big time. But in the few minutes of the trailer I was able to relate this movie to a bunch of Hollywood movies. Time machine concept has been explored to the core in Hollywood, but still is interesting for us as its not been used in Bollywood so much. So "Back to the future" series, "The Time machine" and many more might come to mind watching the starting portions of the promo. But then it gets more exciting when they show Oct 2050 Gateway of India. Will Mumbai seriously look like that in 42 yrs ?? Thats tremendous improvement to me.

Then we get to see a group of robots bearing uncanny resemblance to "iRobot" movie. The cinematography and effects seemed brilliant and for most part I felt I was watching a Hollywood flick. Then when they showed the cars flying in between buildings I couldn't stop myself from thinking of the movie "Fifth Element". But the best part comes in the end. The ending music of the trailer which is strikingly similar to Robbie Williams' Millennium song and background music in the movie "Mars Attacks". All this in just one trailer. Hopefully the similarities end there...

On a lighter note, I thought even the Hero's looks seemed to be greatly inspired by Hrithink Roshan's :).

yes Ashi...Sci-fi genres are something which need to be explored more and more in Bollywood...the kind of money they are making, and the talented directors and actors they are having right now, they can easily experiment. And yeah I'm too looking forward for this movie....

ah..ah.. a 35cr movie on a debutant "beta" who likes more to work behind the camera..than in front..!
Hats off to Mr. Harry baweja for being the father he has been.. every one should aspire to be like him.. I wish him all the LUCK.!
coZ he badly needs it (if truly the movie is worth the cost its being projected.!)
by the way.. the TRAILER was absolutely COLD.! not a single time was the face of FUTURE (as they say.. FUTURE HAS COME.!) was projected in intense scenes and well well when it was really shown we understood that this is not the FUTURE we deserver mr. harry.! it might just be a whimper.! than a thunder.!
the film shots suggest that there is a lot of camera involved and less sensibility..! perhaps thaz how Harry treats his movies..

well.. being a surd myself i wish that the baweja son is accepted by the audience..

heheh...yeah ranvir..when spielberg makes a scifi, we know that he can do magic, coz he puts in that much amount of research into it. now if u c the movies harry had made, we really can't say that he's a techy director. in that aspect i admire sanjay gupta for his different subjects treatment. his gangster type movies are technically sound. but everyone deserves a first chance. so may be harry must hav made a winner in this movie...lets c...
