INCEPTION - Dream or Reality !!!

What's the most resilient parasite? An Idea. A single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules.

INCEPTION is Christopher Nolan's best movie till date and has surpassed Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. A must watch movie with a mindblowing cliffhanger ending. 10/10

Now the climax of the movie made me think if its a reality or a dream. On my first viewing, I was sure that it is a dream. But on my second viewing, I got confused as I had read many discussion boards and stuff and I saw things which I had not bothered about earlier. I'll now give a detailed explanation evaluating both theories whether the movie is a dream or reality.


Many people, including me, believed that Cobb's kids, Phillipa and James at the end of the movie are the same, haven't aged and are wearing the same clothes. But on my second viewing, I noticed that the kids are different and are older compared to the younger ones we've seen throughout the film. Their clothes are slightly different. The girl has a white shirt underneath her red dress and his son is wearing shoes instead of sandals at the end. Even the credits at the end show two different sets of kids.

Cobb remembers exactly how he got to where he is, which he wouldn't know if he was dreaming.

In EVERY scene which is supposed to take place in reality, Cobb isn't wearing a wedding ring. Every dream sequence, he is (as he tells Ariadne, "In here we're still together."). At the end when he goes home and spins the top, he isn't wearing the ring. I didn't notice this at all on my first viewing.

All my life I've tend to let people walk over me too much. But I've learnt the hard way that being too nice never helps. Remember that you are born alone and you will die alone. So let me share some of the Don'ts I've learnt through many experiences.

Don't lose your self respect and dignity.
Don't let anyone treat you badly or put you down ever.
Don't let anyone overpower you or treat you in any wrong way.
Don't believe in rumors or gossips and assume that you are just hearing one side of the story.
