Mission Impossible 4 – the movie Review


Mission Impossible 4 (MI4) is an excellent watch. Tom Cruise rocks with his team! The biggest plus point is the humour quotient through out the movie unlike the earlier ventures! So it’s just not action packed, exciting but also quite entertaining and enjoyable. Wish there was a 3D version! Anil Kapoor is a non-cameo pappu here. We have seen Shakti Kapoor, Gulshan Grover, Ranjit in relatively stronger villain-cum-pappu roles in Hindi movies quite often, haven’t we? (But whatever and however, Anil has done that role for the best reasons known to him.)
So touch of Bollywood style and India make the movie bit a package to sell out, don’t they?
Dubai – Burj Khalifa, Sand Storm sequences are more than worth mentioning, in fact, the best. The Burj Khalifa sequence gave more than the trade mark mountain scene of the MI series.
Russia- prison scene was crisp. The Kremlin Crumbling even more!
Russia, Dubai, India (it was indeed to showcase a bit of India more than a stereotype Mumbai, there’s more in Mumbai to shoot scenes at) fit into the story quite smoothly except the illusive transition form Dubai to Mumbai until the explicit mention was made.
The mention of the Chhatrapur art made me feel bit good!
Ah, the heat fan – magnetic robot sequence!

Wondered how a (ex university-) professor was so strong even to give a fight with a super agent as Ethan! (Any way, he finally decided to drop himself back.)
As with the MI movie trend, after the last action sequence with the reunion, it just doesn’t end there, it shows the back to normal life and then ready for the next mission (impossible).

GP not for Ghost Protocol, but should be for Grand Prix, such was the racy pacy flow of the movie with appropriate space!

And finally, a good movie always draws audience itself, so does this movie.

Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, All!


Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, Congress! Yes, BJP! Yes, CPM! Yes, All! Yes, etc! Yes, et al!
I am the ridiculously Independent ‘Common Poor Man‘ !

I am the compulsory, yet partly optional!
I am the subject, I am the specialisation!
Yes, I am the PCM!
But only in the votes, ranks
as marks just for the Qualification!
I am Prem, I am Chatur!
Yes, I am the Prevalent Common Man!
I am the generalisation, yet not the realisation!
I am the suggestion, not the implementation!
I am the news, but only the Journalists’ slogan!
I am the motion, but never the action!
In the Constitution, but outside the (Planning) Commission!
I am in the Institution, but never in the Consideration!
I am in the Law, but never in the Know!
I am the Integration, I am the Unity,
But if I show fully, to them I look dirty!
I am the Majority, yet the Minority!
I am the Mass, but treated as the Trash!
I am the Voice, but never a compulsory Choice!
I am the Point, but not as long as the Opponent!
I am in the election,
but as Permutation and Combination!
I am significant only in the counting
of votes in the election,
But left out to be mere two-digit number
when it comes to monetary calculation
Or so to say to attach a valuation
towards a BPL qualification!
I am always in the scene,
but later edited, cut, deleted
when it comes to be the released Film,
so much so that I am made so irrelevant
as if I am so misfit and obscene!
I am the resource, I am the growth,
I am the treasure, I am the wealth,
but made out to be the burden of subsidy
and fiscal deficit in the budget
to hide their misfire and misadventure,
and the inability, the opaque governance,
to conceal and prolong their illicit honeymoon
with dishonesty and corruption,
Thereby giving us the unwanted child
In the form of high inflation!
I am the food, I am the nutrition,
But in the godown, made out to rot
If I don’t fit in their plan and ambition!
I am in the act, but not in the participation!

Hey, watch out, all you Political Corrupt Men!

I am the Pressed Compressed Man!
Yes, I am the Poor Common Man!
