7. Dudes, Ever Watched A 7D Movie? Not 3D! Wow!!

Have you ever watched a 7D Movie. Well dudes, I haven’t. My big kid Hiru who studies in a far away country did. She came online to chat two days ago. This is how it went.

Hiruni: hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Thaththaa, Amma, Malleeee,
Hiruni  is online.
Henry: hello
thats the best movie experience ever
Henry: that's what we told you not to miss it…….

And that was how it started. She was so thrilled and was freaking out, I asked her to write it in a word doc right away while the memory was still fresh, and email it to me without smothering me with details, which she did. She’s always been one of my favorite writers. You’ll see what I mean.
It had been us the other day who had asked her to go and see what a 7D movie is like when she said about that. She was a bit reluctant and said it was not worth it as the running time is only 20 minutes which cost as much as a standard length movie. She finally went to see it with her best friend just because we were insisting.
And here is the account she wrote in a Word Doc and mailed to me as it is , unedited in its original form.

This Is the Ticket for the 7D Movie

In the Lobby. You can see an employee watching the audience on the TV screen.

The Name Of the Movie We Watched "затерянный остров"  . It means  Lost Island.

The Day We Watched A 7D Movie. Wow!!

A  7D  MOVIE! What on earth was 7D. I spent around 2 hours last night trying to figure it out and still couldn’t come up with any reasonable concept. I have watched the3D Movie “Avatar”. Three Dimensions I understand. What are 7 dimensions? Could it be that we can see the internal organs, this is the last idea that crossed my mind before I drifted to sleep. And this morning I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep due to the fear of oversleeping and missing the movie.
We reached the cinema around 10. 00 am. The neon lights sported the word 7D and a pair of specs in blue and red. It reminded me of Las Vegas. Anyway to my amazement there was just another small boy and his mom. The little guy had a huge Pepsi bottle and a can of popcorn tucked under his arm.  I asked the lady where to buy the tickets and she answered me in Russian that the lady at the ticketing counter will arrive soon. 
I took a sneak peek into the hall. The first thought that crossed my mind was that this was the planetarium that we were taken to so often on field trips as kids. There were so few seats and the screen was curved and it was a bit bigger than our living room. 

Then this boy came and switched on a TV that was outside the hall and guess what we can see all the chairs from outside. In other words we [ the spectators ] were on screen for the people who pass by the film hall. 

There were around 12 movies shown on the ticketing booth and we didn’t know which we were gonna watch. Then finally this girl came and sold us our tickets. The mom and the son were first to go.  They were each handed in a pair of specs. And then we approached her and she asked us what we wanted to watch and we promptly answered that whatever was shown was what we wanted to watch. Then she handed us two tickets and told us to go to seat row no. 2. We found ourselves seated right next to the mom and the son. On the row of seats in front of us we saw nozzles which we later understood the purpose of. Then all of a sudden the lights dimmed. And the sponsors were advertised, just some astronaut thing. And the letters were right in front of me I could reach out and touch them. And then it all began…………………..
There was this animated guy in a plane. Soaring over all these lush green lands and suddenly something goes wrong with his plane and it begins to swing and go all over like crazy. I felt dizzy and nauseous as I realized that we too were falling. Falling and swaying down down, down. And then bang. We crashed to the ground. I was nearly thrown out of my chair as we landed. I heard the little boy scream.
 And then we stood up and started walking through the jungle. The leaves were everywhere and so were the branches. I could touch them and every time I did my hand passed right through them. And I had to duck and bend just to save my head from hitting the branches and twigs. 
Then we came across some elephants. They put their trunks just near my face and I could touch them. And I would have if they hadn’t taken some water from the pond they were in and sprayed it right over me. I am not lying by the time we passed the elephants our faces were dripping water! It was so cool. 

Then we came to this spot with the butterflies and they were so colorful and flying just in front of my eyes and were coming up from behind me. It felt as if though I was somewhere else, somewhere like heaven. I touched so many of them. It was the closest I’ve ever gotten to live butterflies. 

Then came the leopard. Just like that. Out of nowhere. We ran and ran for our lives. Trudging and ducking to avoid being slapped in the face by branches and we ran up the wide branches of the trees, up and up tilting this way and that way.  It reminded me of the Tarzan video game I used to play with my little bro. And all the while the leopard was thumping and jumping and landing with such terrific shudders that the earth vibrated and rumbled beneath our feet. Then finally we were safe and it was night. 

It was then the fireflies came out. I touched about two or three of them. And then came the part when I nearly passed out. Well almost. There were the frogs. They were on the leaves and sticking their tongues out. And alas then they just jumped out and began crawling up our legs. Believe me they really really did crawl up our legs. I screamed and took my legs up onto the chair. And I heard a commotion to my right and saw that the little boy too has freaked out. They were just squirming up my legs. 

Then to my utmost relief that part ended and it was day time. They showed an area full of skulls guarded by this huge gigantic python. I was so glad we were not in that territory. But how was I to know that my relief was short lived? And we started our walk to find some help, any help. A flock of birds just passed us and the wind that followed their wake blew at our faces. We had to tilt away to miss their beaks piercing our eyes. 
It was then we came to the land of the skulls. And oh my God! There were these daggers coming right at our eyes. Swishing past us with the wind following their wake blowing right at us. They were coming straight at us. This way and that way and we were ducking all along to avoid them. I was so scared believe me I really expected one to hit me in the head! 

Then one of the skulls tilted forward and out of it came one rat. Then two and three. And they jumped straight at us, baring their sharp, pointy teeth all the while. And then it was happening again. They started climbing up our trouser legs. Climbing and climbing. Once again my feet were on the chair and I was almost running out of the hall. 
Then when I thought I had seen it all, the giant python started sliding. It was so huge. It unwrapped itself and then looked directly at me. Just at me. It recoiled and then with great vengeance it lunged forward at me!!!!!!!! Right in my face. Right there. Then it recoiled once again and lunged back at me. If in any case I had some heart problem it would have been it for me. I would have rested in peace then and there. Then it was the end. 

Oh no, not yet. Not at all. The ground beneath us started to cave in and we were falling and falling and falling. I just wanted to throw up. We were tilted this way and that way and then once again we landed with such jarring impact I nearly spat out my heart. It was such a harsh landing. 

Then was it over? No. The land once again tilted and everything around us came crashing down. The mountains, the rocks the trees. Absolutely everything.  And the Earth beneath our feet was rumbling and quivering. And we were tilted and were falling, down down down into the lava. Yes. This was it. It was how it was all going to end. And when we were just about to touch the flames that were coming up from the great depths of the Earth, we landed on a wedge of rock that was protruding from a mountain. 

And then we heard the nicest sound in the world. A chopper. Right there to save us. But were we to be saved that easily?  No way. The wedge of rock started crumbling, giving away chunk by chunk. We were running back. Then at the same moment a ladder was thrown out of the chopper. It was there right in front of my face. The rungs so inviting and I stretched my hands to catch it. And so did Jo Jo. The guy who was me all this time. The guy who crash landed. The animated guy who took me through all the terror. 

And we were safely rescued from all the horrors of the unknown land. And then the names were cast. And the lights came back on. And the little boy still had his Pepsi and pop corn in his hands, untouched. He looked at his mom with bewilderment! 

Yes it was over. The best 20 minutes any movie watcher can ever have. A 20 minutes I will not  trade for 1 hour 45 minutes of any movie I’ve ever watched. It was all over. I wonder how much the little boy managed to see through his fingers which were covering his face all the while. The fingers his mom was trying to pry away and show him what was happening.
And as we were coming out the lady at the counter took back our specs and asked us if we had enjoyed the movie. Had we enjoyed it? She already knew the answer as she could see us on the TV outside! It was an experience of a life time. We determined to see the rest of the 12  7D MOVIES, too.

So that was the end of it dudes. Anyway when I referred back to the chat that I had saved it explained how some of those effects are made with strips of rubber, water sprinklers and the works. I’m also dying to see one dude!!
Well if you already have dudes, why don’t you write about it in a comment and post it?


  1. blogwalker i don't know how to thank youfro sharing my experience. it means a lot to me. thank you so much. it made my day! thanks agin. keep on writing. we love your blogs

  2. Hi blogwalker,
    Wowwwwwwwwwww! It's really awesome and thank you very much for sharing this with us as I've never heard about a 7D Movie. And I'm really thankful to Puthu for reliving the movie from the beginning to the end. The writing was really cinematic. I also feel like watching one. Thanks again both of you.


  3. hey can u tel me wts the difference between 5d and 7d.. bcoz i experienced the same thing in 5d movie too....

    1. Ankit, Thanks for the comment. Actually it's my daughter who watched this. Can you see in the top picture, on the bottom left corner there are 7 small reddish boxes. just zoom in and see. Those are supposed to be the 7 dimensions they advertise.

  4. The device is certainly worth considering, even at the full retail price and with
    only a $200 discount on the contract, it might make sense to
    consider paying the full retail. The Nexus S, however, has
    flash while some variants, such as the Samsung Vibrant
    and Captivate, of the Samsung Galaxy S do not. Like the Apple i - Pad Keyboard Dock listed above,
    the Logitech Android Keyboard has many tablet-friendly features.

  5. It can help you in your business life, school, or personal life.

    If your gate changes at the airport, this app will alert you.
    The devices must be hooked to a power source and
    be connected to WI-FI for it to automatically back up.

  6. While the latter may have better specs, the Kindle Fire HD
    8. 9-inch, wifi-only style was released on Nov Of sixteen,
    and also the 4G-enabled variation is timetabled to be removed the week associated with
    December. ' Many websites and commentators took this to mean that Amazon would establish the connection to your bank and send the results to you.

  7. Is it an advantage or disadvantage to save everything on the web.

    Though fascination with this laptop has not died, but some gaping negatives
    have been highlighted. " Should you not mind an inferior screen however , you will not taking the laptop with you - we may advise something from the 14-inch range.

And now you can SPICE’EM UP, too. :)
