2 years back when i read that David Fincher is gonna make a movie on Facebook, i seriously thought that he had lost it.
The first thought that came to my mind was that its gonna be LAME.... but then few days later got the news that its gonna be based on Ben Mezrich's Book 'Accidental Billionaires', which was all about 'How Facebook Happend' ?
Now it seemed totally different & with Aaron Sorkin on board as the scriptwriter the Expectations were Sky-high.
And THANK GOD .... 'THE SOCIAL NETWORK' didn't disappoint me. The First thing i did after watching the movie was, go to Mark Zuckerberg's page on Facebook and LIKE it.No wait.. actually that was the second thing. The First thing i did was search for Erica Albright but was disappointed.
You can surely term this movie as 'The Movie of This Generation'.... it has everything from .. Love,Friendship,Betrayal & Money .... Lots of MONEY :)
Fincher just showed us again why he is such an Amazing Director.The Cast which features virtually Unknowns with an exception to JT... was just tooo apt for their respective roles.
Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg truly nails the performance.He was well supported by Andrew Garfield (Da New Spidey!) , Justin Timberlake & Arnie Hammer.
But for me,the True Hero of this movie is Aaron Sorkin who just adapted Ben Mezrich's Book in a totally different way for which he truly deserves an Oscar.
Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) & Atticus Ross have given reallly apt music. Do check out the track 'In The Hall Of The Mountain King' :-O. They already have got the Globe , Let's see whether they walk away with the Golden Statuette or not.

Rating : 4/5 ( Great Script , Great Direction & Amazin Actin by the Cast)

Verdict : Don't u wanna know How IT all Started? ;-)
