The world of dreams can be an incredible window into the psyche, showing one’s deepest desires, aspirations, and repressed memories. One hopeful tech lab has been developing the “DC Mini,” a device with the power to delve into the dreams of others. Atsuko Chiba and Kosaku Tokita have been tirelessly working to develop this technology with the hopes of using it to deeply explore patients’ minds and help cure them of their psychological disorders.
However, having access to the deepest corners of a person’s mind comes with a tremendous responsibility. In the wrong hands, the DC Mini could be used as a form of psychological terrorism and cause mental breakdowns in the minds of targets. When this technology is stolen and people around them start acting strangely, Atsuko and Kosaku know they have a serious problem on their hands. Enlisting the help of Officer Konakawa, who has been receiving this experimental therapy, they search both the real and dream worlds for their mental terrorist.
While watching this movie the other movie which came into my mind is Inception, Yup you read it right it is Inception as both the concepts are similar. It can be said as the anime adoption of the live action movie or live action adaption of anime as Paprika was realised in 2006 where as Inception was realised in 2010. The effects in this movie is so good guys but this movie is confusing and we need to have so much of creative mind in order to understand this movie, I feel like Inception can be easily understood when compare to Paprika. There are so many scenes in this movie which are similar to Inception and which even reminds us of Inception. The balance between real world and dream is not up to the mark and it was not clear till the end. It was shown as the dream got ended but suddenly they say that they are still in the dream. If you keep that aside the concept, the effects everything is good but I felt like the movie was rushed. Everyone can watch this movie for its concept guys as it has a good and unique concept.
