It’s been a really long time! Here I am, back to what I love doing!
I saw Titanic in 2D all the way back in school. Probably twelve years ago. I saw it with my entire family then. My sister and I enjoyed watching it a great deal though we walked out heart-drenched.
It felt the same as I saw it with a close friend this time around in 3D. You may not however call it a 3d screening. It was only a replay of the original film. Not much of 3D per se could be felt. But the emotions took depth and you seldom remember that it is a 3D movie.
Rose and Jack board the deck of Titanic from different circumstances. Rose is accompanied by her mother and fiance. She is forced into a relationship with her fiance as her mom yearns to become a millionaire’s mother-in-law.
Jack, on the contrary, is an ordinary boy who wins a ticket to Titanic by winning a poker. He boards the ship at the last moment with his friend.
Jack and Rose first see each other from huge distances as their decks are totally different in Class. Jack is impressed on the first look whereas Rose is only casual as her temperament would have been tested by her fiance on a dinner table.
Irked with life, Rose attempts to commit suicide by jumping from over the huge ship. Jack comes to rescue her. Her fiance in complement invites him for a dinner into the upper deck. Jack hardly knows anything about the attitude the class of people there would carry. Nevertheless, he never shows his nervousness. He kisses the lady who comes down the royal stairs. It is the famous kiss on the hands!
After a boring dinner in the upper deck, Jack takes her to the lower deck to show her what a real party means. They enjoy themselves with a dance that makes you smile!
Next day, Jack comes over to the upper deck to meet Rose. Rose quickly comes out of a conversation with the ship’s designer on why he had very few lifeboats given the capacity. The designer beams in pride about the ship’s sturdy body of iron.
Rose and Jack start a not-so-friendly conversation. But as Jack shows his book of paintings, Rose is impressed. They then play a game of who spits longer, as her mom squirms seeing him.
Next day, Jack drags Rose into a room and asks her if she really loves her fiance. He has no place to go after reaching America but then all the determination to work his life out. Rose refuses and quickly leaves. That evening, she comes back to him saying that she changed her mind. That’s when the famous scene happens. They stand atop the nose of the ship with hands held free.
They then go back to her suite as she requests him to make a picture of her wearing only a necklace. A necklace made of diamonds that is given by her fiance, a necklace that triggers the discovery of Titanic. They drop the painting and the necklace on the safe and leave the room with a note to her fiance that wouldn’t be back.
Rose and Jack hide from her fiance’s aide and get into a car where they make love. They then flee to the upper deck and kiss as the Titanic hits the iceburg with a jolt. The crew realizes a little later in time and though they do all that could be possible to avoid the iceburg, it does hit the lower deck. The workers on the coal engine are the first ones to get trapped. Some of them do manage to move out with great unity.
The people in the lower deck are delibrately forced to stay inside. A cabin crew personnel ends shooting Jack’s friends who is from the lower deck. Sick of his act, he shoots himself in a facade.
While Rose cannot leave Jack to take the life boat, Rose’s mother leaves her. Jack tries to save Rose, in every possible way that one can be saved, even after the ship sinks!
Watch it, feel it!
