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.

The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir (2019) starring Dhanush is a feel-good movie that is a story of a young boy “Aja”, living in a Mumbai slum growing up and succeeding in life. If this sounds like Slumdog Millionaire, you are partially wrong. Grown-up Aja goes to Paris, then life takes him to London, Barcelona, Rome & Libya – in every place he gets help from unexpected quarters and there is a touching love story too – many scenes felt like you are reading a WhatsApp forward, or watching Life of Pi (2012) or reading The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.…

If you want to switch off your logical brain, sit back, relax, and can enjoy Mr Bean style of comedy, then check out Johnny English Strikes Again (2018). I enjoyed it, just like I did with Johnny English Reborn (2011). The story (do you need one for a Rowan Atkinson starrer?) is about how a “fired” MI7 agent Johnny English gets reinstated to investigate a cyber crime that exposes the entire secret service of the United Kingdom. As usual, Johnny English goes about with his pointless way of investigation, luckily with the help of his saner sidekick Bough (played by…

How much ever we may comment on all romantic comedies being the same and silly, quite often we watch one – and we come out feeling good and that’s what a good romcom can do. Isn’t It Romantic (2019) is one such film. Natalie is a successful architect working in New York, she is single and has low self-esteem about herself. One of her coworkers Josh has feelings for her, which both don’t share with the other. One day, Natalie is mugged, gets hurt and goes into a coma. Waking up she gets to live her dream! Rebel Wilson as…
