The much-acclaimed and much-awaited movie – 300 – has finally released in Hyderabad. In both English and Hindi, but thankfully not telugu! I guess that it will be relatively successful, given the hype surrounding it and also because it is releasing on a weekend that even has Monday as a holiday (on account of the telugu festival of Ugadi). I guess the name 300 is a depiction of the number of spartans who fought the war! Anyways, people have had much to say about this movie, Harsh J is totally enamored by this one whereas the reviews here and here suggest that it is a terribly exciting movie
According to IMDB and others..
Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel, “300” concerns the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians; the battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world’s first democracy!
