Inception – Movie Review

We come across a lot of movies in a lifetime but there are only few that leaves a deep imprint on our minds and leaves us in awe wondering ‘what just happened” or “what did I just watch” or “why did it happen or How did it happen”.

Inception is one of those movies that you can only watch once as a first timer, so I would say choose your timings when nobody can interrupt you and only then watch the mind blowing concept of dreams and sub-conscious reality. I warn you that your favorite science fiction is going to change after watching it !

Plot – What’s so exceptional?

We all see dreams when we sleep. Don’t we?

Sometimes vague other times vivid, and at some rare moments so intense that we don’t feel like coming back to reality. But what if someone uses our dreams against us? Have you ever heard of such culprits who get into your subconscious through your dreams and invades the ideas in your mind?

As they say “An idea, thought is like a virus, resilient and highly contagious. The smallest seed of an idea can grow. And it can grow to define or destroy you.”


Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster ‘Inception’ starring the Oscar-winning Leonardo DiCaprio is one such brutal yet amazing three-hour thrilling ride into the complex frames of the networks braided with multiple subconscious.
