It was fun to watch The Lion King in Tamil (தி லயன் கிங்) in Tamil. The story and the characters were (almost) the same as in the original animated film that released in 1994 and became a super-hit for Disney. The photorealistic animation in this release was unbelievably good. Hearing Simba, Scar, Nala, Zazu and other characters speak in the voice of famous Tamil film stars Siddharth, Arvind Swami, Aishwarya Rajesh and Manobala added to the entertainment. Go for this film, enjoy it with your kids.

Unbelievable it was almost twenty-five years that the first instalment in this franchise, Toy Story (1995) got released. That film catapulted Pixar and the whole category of animated movies to new levels. The next two instalments Toy Story 2 and 3 that came in 1999 and 2010, kept the excitement alive of watching Toys being able to walk and talk, anthropomorphism in short. There is only so much you can extend a franchise with sequels, so I was sceptical about Toy Story 4. Surprisingly, Disney has succeeded in producing a great film that people of all ages can enjoy.

There is a timeless beauty to simplicity. More than a decade ago, when my son was a few years old, I remember watching a TV series for kids on Cartoon Network. Originally made by Nickelodeon, “Oswald” was about a fun-loving octopus living with his friends in a neighbourhood of a big city.

Seeing the characters, I wished my life was as simple as Oswald’s. Each episode is brief at 12 minutes and nothing unpleasant…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) was fun and more enjoyable on an IMAX 3D theatre. This is not a sequel to The Amazing Spider Man 2, but a parallel narration. Spider-Man (2018) is an animation film about Miles Morales, a teenage boy of African-American race, accidentally becoming a spiderman and tasked with saving the entire universe he is living from being destroyed by the villain Kingpin. Kingpin is building a particle accelerator to access parallel universes to bring from another dimension his (deceased in this dimension) wife and son. This causes multiple dimensions to collide with each other and potentially risking of destroying…

Disney is the undisputed leader when it comes to making animated films that both kids and adults adore. I always notice their brilliance in the way they bring out human emotions in all their characters whether they are toys, animals or princesses. Ralph breaks the Internet (2018) – The story is about two friends – Ralph and Vanellope, both are virtual characters in two arcade games that are in an old video game centre. Due to a mishap, they travel outside their consoles to the Internet to look for a missing spare to keep their game alive. Picturising living beings and…
