Tenet; You are not shooting the Bullet, you are catching it

Another mind-bending movie by Christopher Nolan that was supposed to be out in 2020, but is now being delayed because of the Pandemic. July is the new release date for the movie, considering about the plot of the movie, the lead actor seems to work for CIA and stopping some events that might unfold world war 3. It is visible in the trailer that everything seems to work in the backward direction, most of the things like water waves, the train etc, some events have also been taking place backwards. The lead cast also include Robert Pattinson, the new Batman and the new batman is in the movie of Christopher Nolan, who directed the dark knight saga.

In this movie, the lead role played by John David Washington, replies to Robert Pattinson in a scene when he says, what happened here, then John David replied, hasn’t happened yet, it means they will reverse what happened earlier and then they had to stop it from happening. It seems like turning the clock back, but always there will be consequences and they have to fight the consequences. The idea behind the tenet is not new, but Christopher Nolan comes with such mind-bending presentation and movie making scenes that are intriguing like when a car that just rolled over, goes back and start running back on the street normally, these are all the things that make Christopher Nolan’s movies mind-bending. Remember Robert Pattinson asked; Joh David, “time travel” , he replied no, “Inversion”. Christopher Nolan certainly use scientific methodologies, and take on board various technical people who can help him create the true vision for his stories, for interstellar he hired scientists so that he can create accurate versions of his script, therefore he and his brother write these stories in a way that you cannot skip a scene, and if you do, then you might always regret it!

Let’s wait and see the movie in Cinema! (All i have you is a word, “TENET”- it will open all the right doors, but some wrong one’s too, So use it carefully)
