BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced a nationwide lockdown for the 21 days to fight the coronavirus pandemic. He has strictly instructed all citizens not to leave their homes during these days. “Forget about leaving home in the next 21 days. If you cross the Lakshman Rekha, you will invite the virus home,” Modi said in his second address to the nation within a week.
Now, those who have been cribbing for the longest time to catch on the latest release, this is the time to stay at home and watch them all. Before you react, we know. It is a tensed atmosphere. Of course, 10 countrymen have died due to coronavirus already and number of positive patients have crossed 540. But then, in this time of crisis, we have to brace ourselves and stay strong, mentally and physically. In this home quarantine, why not ease our tension by watching some of the greatest films, and if that film is the Oscar-winning Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite. Of course, one should have watched this one in the theatres, but now, you can watch this masterpiece on Amazon Prime Video from March 27.
And wait, we haven’t told you the most interesting portion. You know, Parasite is a Korean language film, which bagged the Oscar for the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film. And of course, Amazon Prime Video will screen the film in the Korean language, and also with English subtitles. But Bong Joon-Ho’s cult film, will also be available in Hindi dubbed version to reach to a wider section of the audience. Now how great is that.
As the story of Parasite goes, Ki-taek`s family of four is close, but unemployed. With a bleak future ahead of them, the son Ki-woo is recommended for a well-paid tutoring job, spawning hopes of regular income. Carrying the expectations of his family on his shoulders, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview with Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm. It is at this house that Ki-woo meets Yeon-kyo, the beautiful young lady of the house. However, behind this meeting, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.
