The movie is huge-ass long, but I’ll keep the review short. I just saw something on the big screen that isn’t very easy to describe. Interstellar is a work that not everybody will like, but it is by far Christopher Nolan’s best work. And here’s another disclaimer — I liked M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village too, so you can go figure.

The star cast consists of some of Hollywood’s biggest names — Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon and Casey Affleck (okay, maybe not such a big name, but he’s, well, Ben Affleck’s brother) to name a few. And the movie itself is a combination of everything you have ever heard; from a Stephen Hawking-quoting armchair physicist to an enthusiastic (and less intellectual? Don’t judge me) Cosmos-watching Carl Sagan fan.

Interstellar delves into wormholes, black holes, event horizons, time travel and a lot more universe-centric razzmatazz that is only theoretically proven. But surprisingly, Nolan pulls it all — and I really mean all — off really well. I won’t go into the story-line because I don’t think anybody can do justice to a script and screenplay of this magnitude by just grazing over the plot; you have to watch it to really know just what is going on.

It’s one of the best sci-fi movies ever made. Yes, at times you may just feel like you have to strain your brain to connect the dots, but if you walk into a Nolan movie thinking it’s made by some Sajid Khan-type-leave-your-brain-at-home filmmaker, you will be in for a rude shock.

It. Is. Heavy. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

I think Interstellar is a mind-blowing piece of art that deserves to be watched at least twice by every sci-fi lover in the world — in theatres. Don’t read too many reviews to decide whether you want to see it; I usually do, but I’m telling you after having experienced it — don’t. It has the power to question your existence. Beyond that, I don’t want to say too much.

The movie closed to a round of applause at the press preview. That should sum it up for you.

RishiO’s Rating – 4.5/5
