The Godfather (1972)
The world inside the underworld!
The godfather trilogy is an exclusive set of movies that will continue
to live with humanity, every generation will see them to say, "Oh that
was 10 out of 10." If you watch them you will know that the world that
lives inside the underworld is same as the one we live in except that
people in underworld are so smart, in fact smartness is the only thing
that can keep them there. Don Vito Caroleone's early life shown in
part-II is very well done to show the Don in making, how a kid who
couldn't even tell his name went on becoming a underworld don who keep
most senators, judges and lawyers in his pocket. Meeting of don with
the so call five families are among most impressive scenes.
A saga that goes on for 9 continuous hours takes you around various
walks in life of Mike (Don's younger son who become Don later), his
school days, love life, personal life, family life, business life,
political life and religious life. How all of these different roles
Mike plays in his life and how intertwined these are.
I enjoyed watching these movies so much, I wish I had seen them much
before then I did. Its amazing to see how the Part-III was made 18
years later the part-I was made and everything looks so continuous if
watch them together.
I need not say much! The Godfather father trilogy been around for a
while and everyone knows that they are great set of movies, its just
the matter of when you actually get to see them.
Watch them! Kudos to Francis Ford Coppola! -Vishy
