This 2012 fantasy action film, The Hunger Games is directed by established Hollywood filmmaker, Gary Ross and is a screen adaptation of the highly successful novel written by Suzanne Collins. The film casts some of Hollywood’s elite along with a few up and coming stars of the future, which include Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, the dashing Liam Hemsworth and the lovely Jennifer Lawrence.
The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic future in the nation of Panem. Here the twelve districts that form the nation will have to compete in the Hunger Games as punishment for an anti-government uprising from their past. Every district will pick a male and a female representative between the ages twelve and eighteen to train and ultimately fight to the death, until only one survivor remains. With a successful box-office run and not to mention the twelve nominations and four awards, The Hunger Games is the first instalment of the highly popular series of fantasy action novels.

Full marks to the movie, its visual style, the performances, the score, cinematography, everything.
But nothing, NOTHING, to Reliance home video for ruining the feel of a movie that went beyond being just another summer blockbuster.
Firstly, what gives them the right to change the aspect ratio of the movie?? The movie was clearly shot in Widescreen 70mm but for their own fancy we are forced to watch it in 1.85 : 1 aspect ratio which makes it look like watching it on any other movie channel on cable. Now reliance might argue that they only did this so that the movie looks great on the new age Widescreen LED tv's, but oh! i didn't know that you could also sacrifice what the makers of the movie intended you to see in the process.
Secondly, you censor the subtitles??? In a PG-13 movie?? Where words like Damn, and Hell get read as D*** and h*** or simply '****' . To 'whom' exactly are you trying to prove that you are making a giant contribution in moral policing??
Also, WHO has done your subtitling for you??? there are (and i'm not kidding) more than 60 sequences where the characters are saying something else but the subtitles are saying another eg:-
'Lots of coal' becomes 'not too cold'
'Things we need' becomes 'as we need them'
'I'm dead anyway' becomes 'get it anyway'
These are just sentences, but there are sometimes large chunks of dialogue that are written as something entirely different. For people watching the movie for the first time entire scenes of feeling and intent will be lost. I am not trying to sound mean, but the people who have done the subtitles for you seem to still be grasping what we call the English language. Or wait, are these subtitles meant for deaf people who can't lip read?? oh sorry, then my argument is baseless!
You know, earlier when Relaince used to be BIG Home Video, i made it a conscious effort to NEVER buy their dvd's. Because they would shamelessly remove (not edit, REMOVE) sequences from movies which had excessive violence or even brief nudity (my BIG Home Dvd of Amadeus is still catching dust because i refuse to touch it). Clearly the name change has not changed their thinking. They still believe that they have some sense of high authority to tamper with a PG-13 movie?? really??
Does Reliance ever sit and wonder why a LARGE percentage of the urban indian population still buys dvd's from abroad, even if they have to pay double the rates? It is because when i invest in a Dvd from abroad i am getting the ENTIRE picture. It is the way the Director WANTS me to see his picture, it is the movie in all its glory for me to enjoy and be entertained in within the confines of my own home.
But instead of coming up with a simple solution like say; releasing two kinds of Dvd's, one being the actual dvd with all the content, the other being the PG dvd which has all the cuts so that an entire family can watch the movie, we are all made to suffer with these tampered dvd's because clearly, Indian families are not smart enough to supervise what their own children get to watch. Also all that a company like Reliance cares about is to sell a maximum number of their product and make a profit. I would be shocked if anyone there actually cared about the viewer and his right to enjoying the full movie. It is really sad.
Hence, full marks to Flipkart for their usual delivery on time, and excellent service. But nothing to Reliance, who have ruined another great movie for me, and they will shamelessly continue to do so for decades to come because one little complaint like this is going to do nothing for a system that is already so badly organised and governed that even an ordinary movie can be shamelessly butchered just because some men somewhere want to get richer than they already are.
Sad. . . . . . . . . .
If you have read the novel you will feel little disappointed as novel creates hell lot of expectation. But if someone not read the novel, will sure enjoy this movie. Jennf did a true justice with the role and you can immediately relate. so the Peta. Some more special effect at the end would have made move little grand. But overall I liked and thoroughly enjoyed. You can watch with family.
Saw the movie yesterday and believe me its exactly how I imagined while reading the novel.
Firstly its not as gory as the novel.
Secondly Jennifer Lawrence fits the role to a T and the cinematography is simply beautiful, not to mention the underplayed role of Peeta Mellark by Josh Hutcherson.
Looking forward to film versions of Catching Fire and Mockingjay.
Maybe it is because I am a really big fan of the books, but I found the movie really disappointing. It didn't feel as grand as described in the books. It failed to capture the scale of Capitol and Hunger Games. Jennifer Lawrence is the perfect Katniss, but the rest of the cast doesn't fit into their roles as easily. In general, the movie lacked continuity.
The wife and I randomly picked this movie one Friday, and boy were we glad! It was incredible! We actually then picked up and read all 3 books in the trilogy! Can't wait for the next movie; my favorite book in the trilogy!
