Sci-fi movies over the years

mainimage Sci fi movies over the years

Science fiction is synonymous with vision and imagination. And when it comes to movies, there is no other genre which explores the unknown with as much magic, given all the required assistance from latest technology, expert production and design.

With the Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai starrer Endhiran’s release creating a cultish rage, let’s take a journey through Indian cinema’s dabble in the creative arts of sci-fi�

endhiran Sci fi movies over the years

Endhiran: Touted as Asia’s costliest movie, Endhiran’s release is coupled with very high expectations. The film’s posters and stills screaming with extravagance, we can only speculate that the movie will break all the records of this particular genre and dwarf any other film to come. While there is no doubt that this is the closest we have ever been to Hollywood’s sci-fi standards, we still have a long way to go�

Director: S. Shankar

Cast: Rajinikanth, Aishwarya Rai

raone Sci fi movies over the years

Ra.One: The GenNext Ra.One is slated for release next year, yet has already managed to bring out the curiosity of the masses. Starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Ra.One stands for �Random Access – Version 1′ and is expected to wets our appetite for sci-fi with teasing news of unbelievable stunts and special effects.

Director: Anubhav Sinha

Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor

alladin Sci fi movies over the years

Aladin: Aladin is a neo-modern take on the age-old mythological tale of the ever-so-familiar orphan Aladin and his tryst with fate, with a genie that makes it all possible. The film boasts of an extraordinary visual scale that has never been seen before, but the story on its own failed to �enchant’. With the forced �spice’, so prominent in Indian Cinema, the movie didn’t even make a dent in the minds of the audience.

Director: Sujoy Ghosh

Cast:Amitabh Bachchan, Ritesh Deshmukh, Sanjay Dutt and Jacqueline Fernandez

drona Sci fi movies over the years

Drona: Abhishek Bachchan played Drona, an Indian superhero described as an amalgamation of Harry Potter and Prince of Persia. Drona took us through one man’s encounter with his destiny. We watched in wonder as Drona stopped the destruction of the entire cosmos in a spectacular fashion.

Director: Goldie Behl

Cast: Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Kay Kay Menon and Jaya Bachchan

krrish Sci fi movies over the years

Krrish: Krrish was seen as a turning point in Indian Cinema as it set the bar higher for others yet to come. Hrithik Roshan won our hearts as the strong young man who is hidden away in the hills but has superpowers that increase exponentially as he is set wild.

It seemed only natural that Krishna was able to amuse Priya(Priyanka Chopra) with his abilities as he outran horses, caught fish in less than a heartbeat and ultimately defeated the villain in an action-packed climax.

Director: Rakesh Roshan

Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra

lovestory2050 Sci fi movies over the years

Love Story 2050: Love Story 2050 started on a promising note, produced with a huge budget of Rs 50 crore and with a highly skilled special effects team.

Based on a futuristic topic, the movie ventures into the unknown and plays with our minds. But it failed to thrill us with its clich�d presentation of a tremendously variable topic.

Director :Harry Baweja

Cast: Harman Baweja, Priyanka Chopra

prince Sci fi movies over the years

Prince: The tale of a techno-savvy thief Prince who wakes up to find his whole world shattered, Prince failed to enthrall us. The movie has all the ingredients of a perfect sci-fi cocktail – a secret that if unveiled will destroy the planet, a villain and an �almost’-super-hero et al – but somehow managed to mix them poorly.

Director:Kookie V Gulati

Cast: Vivek Oberoi, Aruna Shields, Nandana Sen and Neeru Bajwa

koimilgaya Sci fi movies over the years

Koi Mil Gaya: Koi Mil Gaya manages to club modern-looking, projectile-style rocket ship fiction and humanity with perfection. The movie, complete with Bollywood-style action and drama, successfully holds our attention all throughout.

Director: Rakesh Roshan

Cast: Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan

qayamat Sci fi movies over the years

Qayamat: Misguided mad super-minds planning impregnation of a city and a superhero to save the human race from the existential loss of individuality. Seems like a perfect combination? Unfortunately, the success of a movie doesn’t always rest on only a formula and this was quite evident in Qayamat: A City Under Threat.

Director: Harry Baweja

Cast: Ajay Devgan, Sunil Shetty, Sanjay Kapoor

janidushman Sci fi movies over the years

Jani Dushman: A faint adaptation of Nagin and Jani Dushman(1979), Jani Dushman-Ek Anokhi Kahani is a fantasy film which rests on a horror base. The movie promised to take mythical fights to new metaphorical dimensions but failed to impress.

Director: Rajkumar Kohli

Cast: Jaspal Bhatti, Amrish Puri, Atul Agnihotri

mrindia Sci fi movies over the years

Mr India: Mr India boasts of a perfect concoction of drama and sci-fi. Complete with dance sequences characteristic of Bollywood, the movie tells the classic tale of a man with a formula of invisibility, made credible with photographic tricks and special effects.

Director: Shekhar Kapur

Cast: Anil Kapoor, Sridevi

mrx2 Sci fi movies over the years

Mr X in Bombay: Mr X in Bombay was probably the first Bollywood movie that sent a chill down our spines with its special effects which were quite incredible for that generation. Exploring the wondrous concept of invisibility, the movie was a memorable coupling of hybrid science and horror cinema.

Director: Shantilal Soni

Cast: Kishore Kumar, Kumkum

Tardigrades

Meet tardigrades (commonly known as water bears or moss piglets), one of the most interesting species on the planet. They are not afraid of extreme high and low temperatures, pressure and radiation. Boiled water and liquid helium doesn’t scare them. Tardigrades can survive almost a decade without water. And they are the only animals known to be able to survive the vacuum of space. And yes, they are very tiny. The biggest adults may reach a body length of 1.5 mm, the smallest below 0.1 mm.

Amazing Photos From Mars!! Heaven is there!!

Mars is the god of War. The planet probably got this name due to its red color; Mars is sometimes referred to as the Red Planet. (An interesting side note: the Roman god Mars was a god of agriculture before becoming associated with the Greek Ares; those in favor of colonizing and terraforming Mars may prefer this symbolism.) The name of the month March derives from Mars. Mars has been known since prehistoric times. Of course, it has been extensively studied with ground-based observatories. But even very large telescopes find Mars a difficult target, it�s just too small. It is still a favorite of science fiction writers as the most favorable place in the Solar System (other than Earth!) for human habitation. But the famous �canals� �seen� by Lowell and others were, unfortunately, just as imaginary as Barsoomian princesses.
