Both the films are raising quite a storm among the critics. With strong story line and great performances, they are sure to create history and provide entertainment.
Looper is a film about about assassins in the year 2044 who shoots guys from the future and disposes of the body, and Chittagong is the journey of Surya Sen and all those teenage girls and boys who joined hands in pre-independent India
to give British their first military defeat. While one talks about the future and the world
where time travel is the norm of the underworld another talks about the India that struggled against the shackles of British Raj. But both are about the journey of the protagonist.
Jhunku Roy, the frail 14-year-old from Bengal has known nothing in life other than the passion of a free Chittagong. The understated boy, who plays the protagonist, becomes Jhunku Roy for the audience. It is not another story of a blood bath but a story of a passionate life that in its unrestrained way teaches us many a lesson. While Chittagong is a layered story of a simple boy, Looper is a layered story of a simple protagonist, who himself is sent to the future to kill himself. The story is not simple and can easily be compared to Memto or Inception. Inspite of it being layered, the Hollywood audience is lapping up the movie that challenges the intellect.
Looper is an extremely sophisticated movie that projects the world as it would be, and hence the look has a feel of the future. Chittagong on the other hand with its Khadi attires and cotton saris is apt for the era gone by and the revolution that took place. So far removed yet so similar both Looper and Chittagong are films that can't be missed.
