If you are bored watching such films, which do not require brain, then Tenet is for you. This is the most challenging film of 2020. It has to be seen with vigor, without blinking an eyelid. The reason is that its story periodically takes the time in reverse gear and you see the time spent in the present.
History shows that science fiction has played a big role in the growth of science. Things were first recorded in story-stories woven by the imagination of writers, then came into existence. This is the reason why science fiction thrillers always thrill by staying ahead of science, despite all scientific achievements. Writer-director Christopher Nolan is one of the most imaginative names in the world of the West. Audiences of her films wait because they are not simple. In the world of his stories, he presents challenges like complex puzzles to the viewers. You cannot watch their movies without having a brain. His own Memento (2000) was made by Aamir Khan’s Ghajini (2008) and then Aamir Stater Dhoom-3 (2013) also had his imprint of The Prestige (2006). Nolan’s Inception (2010) has crores of fans in India.In his previous film Interstellar (2014), some people had arrived in space to save the Earth and now in the cinematic release Tenet, the story revolves around Russia-America-Ukraine and India, efforts are being made to save human civilization. But this story is not simple.
In Nolan’s tenet, his characters see the past and the future, aside from the hypothesis of time machine. Travel to them. We struggle to align the present with the past and the future. The world has faced a bigger crisis than the possible third world war. The biggest danger from nuclear power is from a device whose earth will start to rotate in the opposite direction as soon as the correct structure (algorithm) is fit and everything will end in a blink of an eye. Tons of nuclear power will be used to turn the Earth upside down and for this uranium / plutonium is needed. Nolan has imagined here that some people have reached the future and want to capture the rich resources of the earth by pushing it past into the past. Russian Russian dealer of uranium / plutonium and arms Andy Setter (Kenneth Branagh) suffers from cancer. He wants the world to end with his death.Therefore, he shakes hands with those who have reached the future and arranges for the end of the world. He has set the time of the end of the world. The American agency has come to know this and is also getting such things, which have been used in the past, even in the present. Like a revolver bullet. The agency has created an intelligence team named Tenet to tackle this challenge. The protagonist of this tenet (John David Washington) now wants to go into the past and take that algorithm, so that it can be broken and save the earth and nature.
You have to watch this film carefully and also have to do the math. When the story is moving in the present and will reach the past, and when the past and present will go on the screen together, it cannot be said. The protagonist gets two people specially to fight the villain. One is Tenet’s military member Neil (Robert Pattinson) and the setter’s wife Kate (Elizabeth Debicki). Another important face in the mission is Priya (Dimple Kapadia), a supplier of gunfire sitting in Mumbai. It is through this that the hero gets to know the setter. Time is neutral and non-committal, so emotions do not have any place in the entire mission. Let bygones be bygones. The one who died died. Despite this, the protagonist becomes emotionally attached to Kate because she is the mother of a child and children are our future. The hero’s best effort is to save the future of humanity.
In a way, it is to reverse time again and again and ask to rectify the mistakes made in it. This is complicated because as soon as the past of a person or place is changed, its present will also change. Nolan walks at the sharp edge of time in his story and here the thing changes from moment to moment, as much as it should change. Tenet is an interesting film in spite of its complexities. The beauty of cinema is that after connecting with its original tone, scenes start talking to you. The language restrictions are over to a large extent. Tenet has tightness and does not allow it to wander. Despite that its length is about two and a half hours. Returning time and action scenes are fascinating. You cannot expect such science fiction in Indian cinema. At the moment, it can be rejoiced that Mumbai and Dimple Kapadia have got an important place in the world cinema in view of the large population of Indian audience.
