Contest 12: Visually Stunning Films!
The title and theme above are for the contest started by the @cinetv community. All my Hive friends who want to join are invited, click on the title and book your place!
The article below is my contest attempt. Thanks to the administrators of the @cinetv community for providing this opportunity.
I don't know who has an opinion about arranged marriage, but it is a tradition that has been going on for centuries in some cultures. In short, it is the introduction of two opposite-sex people, who do not know each other at all, by third parties for the purpose of marriage.
In countries where it is very common, parents dictate this tradition to their children even today. It takes superhuman effort to destroy a culture that has been going on for centuries. A great deal of love can also provide logistical support!
Naked and trying to get dressed, she needs an Uber taxi driver and sends a call…
…but the Uber driver is right in front of him, in bed and naked! The man she just made love to is an Uber driver.
The Uber driver, who is trying to take the girl he is making love to his home, and the girl who is a customer of the man's taxi, start talking about their relationship, which has only been a few hours since they started, and very interesting dialogues take place.
The couple, who made love for the second time on the second date, said "don't call me again" for the second time, then they meet again, again and again.
Even though I started the subject about making love, the movie contains comedy, romance and drama genres that can be watched as a family.
Without further confusion, let's get back to the beginning.
Kumail is a young man of Pakistani descent living in the United States. He has a conservative family. His family wants him to marry a girl from his own country and from his own faith… And it is the strictest rule for the girl he will marry to be a Muslim.
Kumail offers stand-up shows at a nightclub as well as being an Uber taxi driver. He meets Emily during a stand-up show one night.
The lovemaking and coincidence Uber call incident that I have described above are the scenes between Kumail and Emily. The couple is very sympathetic and presents interesting dialogues while displaying the culture of discussion quite well.
While watching, you may find yourself involved in their environment.
This dialogue is a form of greeting in Islam. One greets and the other greets. It's hard to break people's prejudices about you, isn't it?
After the September 11 attacks, people who are understood to be Muslims because of their clothes or appearance are subjected to judgmental and disturbing visual and verbal harassment, especially in the West and in America. This is reflected in the film to some extent, but it is instructive with very smooth transitions and dialogues. Beliefs are the reflection of everyone's own spiritual value and are a bridge between the person and the values they believe in.
When you sit at the table for a good meal as a family, learning that your plate is not placed on the table is an expression of being expelled from the family.
So, what was done to be expelled from the family?
Kumail, a Pakistani teenager, fell in love with the American Emily.
How big a crime?
In fact, the subject in the movie is the kind that can strain some societies or family relationships, but it reminds us how important anger control is because it is handled with fun and smiling dialogues in the movie. You only think about the present moment, as the immersion feature makes it a part of the scene rather than arousing curiosity about the next scene.
I will not spoil your viewing pleasure any more. The movie has a duration of 120 minutes, this time I am not saying to prepare tea or coffee and go in front of the screen. When you think about it in terms of time, consider the possibility of getting hungry and go in front of the screen with snacks!
The movie, which was released on July 1, 2017 with the original name of The Big Sick, has 1 Oscar nomination, 18 different awards and 100 award nominations.
Directed by Michael Showalter, the film stars Holly Hunter, Kumail Nanjiani, Ray Romano, and Zoe Kazan.
I do not want to talk about the past films or acting of the actors because the character in each film is different and acting is performed according to the character.
You know the last covid epidemic that we have experienced. The word intubation, which we are familiar with with Covid, appears in the movie as well.
But I do not say how and for what purpose, and I exercise my right to remain silent.
Did you wonder?
The screen is yours! Enjoy watching!
Pictures are images taken instantly while watching the movie.
