The the beach Movie Review

Searching for the paradise
By N K Deoshi
Rating: 3/5

Leonardo Di Caprio stars in the latest adventure thriller, 'The Beach', by Danny Boyle, the director who has an itch for doing something different.

Can you possibly contemplate a secret island, a utopian world, away from the hullabaloo of everyday life, and inhabited by a few lotus-eaters, who have only one pursuit in life - pleasure. Too fictitious, it may sound to you. But that's what Leonardo Di Caprio's latest movie, 'The Beach' is all about.

Directed by Danny Boyle, 'The Beach' is about young American drifter, Richard, played by Leonardo, who arrives in Thailand in pursuit of 'some real adventure'. At a cheap hotel in Bangkok Richard meets Etienne and Francoise, a French couple, played by Guillaume Canet and Virginie Ledoyen. Richard falls for Francoise, a beautiful girl. He also encounters Daffy, a half-insane and dopey-head, who tells him about a secret beach, “Paradise”, hidden from the world.

Taking the French couple along, Richard heads off for this beach. After much toil and adventure the trio reaches the Beach, a utopian world, and finds a self- sufficient tripping, dancing hippie community. The trio decides to make this place their home, too. But, as the movie progresses, this 'Heaven on Earth' turns out to be less than perfect and Richard's dream becomes a nightmare as he sees the darker sides of “Paradise”.

Danny Boyle's earlier movies “Trainspotting” and “Shallow Grave” brought him the acclaim. But “A life less Ordinary” was quite a flop at the box office.

Leonardo, who came into limelight for his role as handsome 'Jack Dawson' in James Cameron's Titanic, looks quite groovy in his portrayal as an adventure seeker. But still, the heart-throbbing actor in his boxer shorts and open shirt may not be able to keep the audience stuck to their seats.

“The Beach” is visually beautiful and strives to take its audience into the dreamy, secret world of lotus-eaters. Good cinematography with punchy background music lends an extra zing to it. However, the movie fails to thrill the audience, as the element of surprise in it is too obvious. For the Leo lovers making a beeline to the cinema halls, 'The Beach' comes as a welcome respite in this scorching heat.
