    The climax explains everything: Leonardo was indeed a US Marshal. His wife with suicidal tendency kills their children and he in turn kills his wife and sets their apartment afire. He is admitted to the mental hospital at Shutter Island. He escapes from the hospital. His doctor goes and brings him back to the hospital by saying that Leonardo is his boss and both are deputed to investigate a case relating to a missing patient from that hospital! That is the opening scene of this fantastic psychological thriller. This is my understanding of the story!:)

    That is how it is Ravi ji. Such movies can be called onion movies, layer within a layer. Some worth watching movies that I saw recently:

    Warrior, Kungfu Panda 2, Swing Vote, Super 8, Drive, The Ides of March, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Inbetweeners, Toast, The Music Never Stopped, Little Miss Sunshine and MoneyBall.

    Yes Raviji,watch both the movies and let us know if you liked,but Muran has an adult theme,still,it's a good thriller.

    ---------- Post added at 11:04 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:55 AM ----------

    Watched the Tamil Movie-MOUNA GURU.
    Again,it looks like Tamil filmdom is coming off age with different themes(sad that they do not become blockbusters when bad movies like Endhiran and Mangatha become blockbusters).
    Again a rarity,where a thriller does not have an adult theme,should be the first family thriller!
    Very surprising to know that this is only the second movie of the hero Arulnidhi(would not be surprising if one considers that he is the grandson of ex cm,Mr.Karunanidhi).His voice modulation,body language and expressions are very endearing and natural.
    Not bad to watch with family.
    3.5 out of 5 stars.

    Engeyum Eppodum [Tamil] is a touching movie with a lot of messages: blood/eye/organ donation, getting HIV tested negative before marriage and sober-driving following all traffic rules. Trivia shown during the commercial interval: the scene where the actor Jai gives blood for blood test in a hospital was shot twice and he actually donated blood both the times.

    Just a few minutes back, the movie Nandalala [Tamil] ended in Kalaignar TV. Superb movie. The three characters comprising director Mysskin himself portraying a mental patient escaping from a mental hospital, a school student Ashwath Ram, both in search of their mothers and a prostitute joining them in their journey take us with them to meet different type of people in different mode of transportation throughout their journey. Mahesh Muthuswamy's brilliant photography, Ilaiya Raaja's melodious background score, smooth screenplay and excellent direction are the highlights of this wonderful film.:up

    Yes,Raviji,that was a brilliant movie(though alleged to be a rip off of a Japanese movie) and very untamil!!!(movies with explicit scenes relating to prostitutes have never worked in Tamil).
    If you had liked that movie,you should watch other Director Mishkin's movies-Anjathe(excellent,I've watched it 5 times!),yutham sei and his first movie(the name of which I forgot)
    Iam a huge Mishkin fan

    Today, I watched Julie & Julia on DVD. Good film.

    Nandalala was loosely based on the 1999 Japanese film Kikujiro and partly inspired from Myshkin's life, according to Wikipedia.
    Yes. I enjoyed watching Anjathe. Snigdha, who had performed a popular item number in Anjathe, did the prostitute role in Nandalala.
    I missed it.
    Chittiram Pesuthadi. Watched it.
    Me too. :)
