Interstellar - The Movie Review

Interstellar is a science fiction adventure film directed by Christopher Nolan. The movie is based in near future when earth is no more habitable so NASA decides to send space travelers in search of new places which are able to sustain humanity.

Although, I was not waiting for its release, not even heard about it till the previous day. But I agreed to join my friends because I needed a dose of entertainment after a long and tiring day in office(on Saturday). I may not be following Nolan religiously but I am aware that his movies require a functional brain.

About the movie:
  • This movie is the only application of "Theory Of Relativity", which I unsuccessfully tried to understand during engineering.
  • Please learn the basics about Relativity, Quantum Mechanics, Murphy's Law and Universe before booking tickets.
  • Even if you are not from Science background please participate in clapping after the movie. You can later justify that you loved the direction and physical portrayal of time.
  • One of those movies which give you homework.
  • If you are a Salman fan and watch movies only for Entertainment. Go to the same multiplex and watch "The Shaukeens" on the other floor. Later, smile at people who come out confused after watching Interstellar.
  • Like a typical Sci-fi and Nolan movie, it too leaves many questions unanswered.

(Spoilers begin)
As explained by my friend Daud,the most interesting question is the loop. In the end, Cooper is able to save humanity by transmitting the message through Gravitation. But he transmitted the message from future to save humanity in the past. If he is in future, how could he survived the past. To make it simple, the question is who saved whom? Is it people from future who sent a message, saved their past. Or people in the past saved their future.
Who came first hen or the egg?


  1. Actually Ali what really happened in the movie was that
    -Cooper came back to the present (after a few decades)
    -He got himself into the Black Hole and came in touch with the past
    -Cooper tries to give signals and code to save humanity in this present scenario of himself which was actually happening in the past(as shown in the beginning of the movie)
    -Nolan tries to convey us that gravity and love are the only things that can surpass the boundaries of time and dimension.
    -In a nutshell the actual time frame is the 'past' but Cooper was in another dimension (courtesy of blackhole) trying to cconvey the saviour messages and signal to save the actual time frame 'past' going on.

    1. Thanks Haider. I think your explanation is quiet appropriate. I should watch the movie again. :)
