7th Sem Ended with Russian Connection

End of the semester exam was not celebrated with huge loud and cry. Only mouth fouled language was used to discuss about academics and life. It was a great day for me as in cricket Wasim Jaffer cracked a rocking century against Pakistan. Then, I started watching films with Russian cultural background. It was not due to 'Look East' policy of India but due to mention of such films at my favorite internet site Imdb.

Eastern Promises (2007):
It is drama and thriller feature film directed by David Cronerberg.The film follows the mysterious and ruthless Nikolai who is tied to one of London's most notorious organized crime families. His carefully maintained existence is in danger when he crosses paths with Anna, an innocent midwife trying to right a wrong, who accidentally uncovers potential evidence against the family.

Nochnoy dozor (2004):
Night Watch is a Russian fantasy action thriller film, made in 2004 by the Timur Bekmambetov. It is loosely based on The Night Watch.

Dnevnoy dozor (2006)
Day Watch is a Russian fantasy action blockbuster and sequel of Night Watch. It is based on the second and the third part of Sergey Lukyanenko's novel The Night Watch rather than its follow-up novel Day Watch.

I am mentioning these movies in blog because latter two stunned me with the visual graphics and stunning action. American movies has over utilized the concept of vampires and dark side. This was a good change and shows the great imagination of the Russian counterparts.
Eastern Promises was made by Canadian director but with a good search on Russian background. It was one of few movie which shows why not what and when. In the end, the day was over at 1 December at 2 am.
