There is arguing that this movie will confuse the hell out of you. It is based on a concept that has never been tried before. It is based on dreams. But if you watch it with all the attention you can give then you can understand the plot of this movie.
At the beginning of this movie, we can see that Cobb (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) is at a beach, and some soldiers took him to an old man who said that he met Cobb before in a dream. And then we come to know that the old man is Saito (Ken Watanabe).
Then Saito gives Cobb a job to put a plan into a man’s subconscious mind. The plan is to put thought into ending a company. But to do that, they have to go to a person’s deeper sleep and plan the plan so that the person thinks it’s his own plan. And going from one dream into another is called Inception.
Sounds complicated, right? Let me explain. So to perform an Inception you have to go to a person’s dream, then from that dream, you have to go to another dream, and from that third dream, you have to go to another dream. So dream within a dream within a dream.
Cobb’s partner, Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), said it was impossible, and Cobb replied that it is possible. So Cobb asks Saito if he can put all the charges on Cobb down, then he will do the job. The charges are for his wife’s death. Saito agrees to do that, so Cobb is ready to do the job.
So at first, Cobb needs an architect to build the location of the dream-like reality so that the dreamer doesn’t understand that he is in a dream. So he hires Ariadne(Elliot Page) and then he brings his old partner Eames(Tom Hardy) and hires a chemist, Yusuf(Deelip Rao), to make a potion to go to deep sleep. They arrange a flight with the target, Fischer(Cillian Murphy), and go to his dream and then kidnap him in the dream.
But Fischer’s subconscious tries to defend, and Saito gets shot, so they go to another dream inside of that dream. Fischer’s subconscious tries to attack them so they come up with an idea to tell Fischer that he is in a dream to convince him to join them, then they again go to Fischer’s final dream.
Between that Cobb faces some troubles. His subconscious mind tries to bring back his dead wife Mal(Marion Cotillard) and his wife tries to kill everyone so that Cobb gets trapped in this dream and lives with her forever. She shoots Fischer and he almost gets killed. And to bring Fischer, Cobb and Ariadne go to another dream and kill Mal and bring back Fisker.
Then in the third level of the dream, Fischer comes to know that his father always wanted to see his son as different from him. So Fischer got the idea not to continue his father’s company. So now they have to get out of the dream.
Everyone gets out of the dream but Cobb and Saito. Because Saito was shot in the first level of the dream he died in the third level and was stuck in a Limbo, which means he was in the fourth level of the dream for decades. And when Cobb goes to find Saito he found that Saito was old and that is where the starting of this movie matches.
Cobb gets Saito out of the dreams and Saito keeps his promise to close all the charges against Cobb. And in the end, he is finally able to meet his children. But the twist is Director Nolan confused us with the ending. He finished this movie like the audience doesn’t know that Cobb is still in the dream of reality.
