By accident, more than anything else, the three find themselves beside the grave of Thomas Godwin. The grave was dug up by some miscreants for unknown reasons. The rather colorful history of Mr. Godwin makes Feluda curious to know more about the man.From the diary of Thomas' daughter Charlotte, Feluda finds that a very precious clock went to Thomas' grave with him. To his surprise, Feluda finds that another party knows about this clock and they are trying to get it aided by the letter with them. Thanks to the brilliance of the detective and the help of 'Haripodobabu', the chauffeur of Mr. Ganguli, a new introduction in this book, their plot is foiled.

However, the weakness in this movie comes from the fact that it really isn't clear what that opinion is, because it seemingly tries to be both for and against it, through the confusing turns of Sheen's Tony Blair. I thought the script was well done, a very appropriate and topical issue with which to undertake a biopic on the Queen, and was sufficiently paced to make the movie enjoyable. James Cromwell performed admirably as Prince Phillip, biting off his words with a savagery that put him in stark contrast with the remaining cast members who are more reserved and quiet. However, I went into this film for the purpose of admiring Mirren's work, and to be completely honest I don't see it. I fail to understand why she swept the awards, as while she did well, she most certainly didn't blow me away. Glad I saw it, but wouldn't actively recommend.
Swayamdeep S (us) wrote: LUP is about 3 characters. Phillip, his girlfriend Ashley , Irk . Phillip is a emotionally detached writer. He analyses every thought that comes into his mind. Phillip guards himself from human connection. He is actually very honest about his feeling . But his brutally honest analysis of emotions makes him mean. He has developed a pattern of destroying meaningful connections with the people who care about him.One of these people is Ashley. Ashley is played by Elizabeth Moss. I love her voice. There is something very distinctive about it (Maybe it is just a Madmen thing). Ike is almost what Phillip will become when he turns 60. A loner who sabotaged his relationship by scrutinizing every bit of them . Narrator :"Ike has begun to loose his passion to be alone all the time and eager to have an impressionable young mind to impart his wisdom" . Ike sees Phillip as a young version of himself but less talented. A loner takes another loner under his tutelage because he is too tired to be all alone. All feelings , thinking , future aspects of different relationships are thoroughly analyzed by the narrator and the 2 loners. Other characters (which are effected or hurt by the loners) suffer. Ike's daughter expresses her frustration out loud. But Ashley suffers in silence."It's ok. I am not angry with you anymore"LUP is about mean people and suffering caused by them. But it is not a melodrama , it is a study of extremely reserved people . It is an analysis about what is healthy for such people and what is not .- Note to self : Rewatch after some years. Dialogues are stuffed, cant make sense of all in one go.SPOILER ...............Later achieve an enviable level of wealth and success . From this day forward, Phillip will never invest so much of himself in anybody else. Instead living a life , so much as consider emotional honesty and deeply vary of those who attempt to get close to him. A pattern of behaviour that ultimately left him in isolated and emotionless specter, forever remaining a mystery, even to himself.

Richard Harris was great as George and a nice suprise of Honor Blackman (probably best known for her role as Pussy Galore in the Bond movie Goldfinger) in the role of Joy.

Too bad. It had potential. Even had a cameo of Coach Messere from West Genesee. Still waiting for a good movie with some lacrosse in it.
Wildaly M (us) wrote: Why did I even freaking watch this? What a waste of time. Everything is blown out of proportion. The lead actor (Klein) looks like a dufus rather than a hero (every other character has to literally spell out for him that the owners are killing players on purpose). Also, this is not a remake. In fact, I'm not going to continue and just tell you to skip this (watch the classic 1975 version instead), unless you want a shot of Rebecca Romijn's breasts or a great tutorial on how NOT to do an action film.
