Finally, I watched Avatar movie in a theater. Immediately I was absorbed into the imaginary world, created by James Cameron.
The movie is all about love, humanity and justice.
I have found the view of Omar Mozaffar, an American Muslim , in Chicago Sun Time on line news.
“And, that brings me full circle. My heart races when I see a beautiful moment of cinematography. My heart races when I notice an excellent edit. My heart races when an actor or actress exercise the craft. But, when film takes me to worlds beyond my imagination it is far more exciting. And, when a movie takes my in-exile self into new worlds within the human heart, showing me dimensions of humanity and the human experience, it is as though the Divine is whispering through these visions of light. ”
Watch the following youtube video, Omer Mozaffar, a Pakistani-Chicagoan, discuss Avatar.
I think his view on the movie reflects the majority Muslim’s view of the movie Avatar. I wish, this movie will shake the mental numbness of the people from the west against Islam. The might is always not right . Sincerity, love and the sense of Justice will only hold the mankind together with peace.
