“Da Vinci code” movie review

As you can see below, I am in the US attending Javaone. I have been reading the news, with increasing concern about the din being made about releasing the movie, “Da Vinci code” in India. It is most likely not going to be released on Friday, May 19th in India. This movie and book, are just works of fiction and entertainment, and I am not happy about this. When people in the US can watch it (the first show started at 12:30 am on Friday), why not in India? We seem to be becoming a society, very prone to protests and kneejerk reactions.
One good thing about Moscone center, where JavaOne is being held, is that there is a theatre, the Metreon that is close by. I watched the movie today, and I must tell you its a good movie. There are good performances by Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou. Of course, its not original to the book and some passages from the book have been sliced. For some reason, I got confused with the other Dan Brown novel, “Demons and Angels” and was expecting a whole bunch of other things 🙂
I would definitely recommend this movie, and more so for people, who have read this book before watching the movie. I am pretty sure, saner voices will prevail and the film will be released soon in India !!
