Overall Review:
Moana is helmed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the same guys that co-directed both THE LITTLE MERMAID and ALADDIN. This is Disney’s 56th animated feature and the studio isn’t losing their touch. Film is full of original and incredibly catchy songs, brilliant characters and a heart-warming story that makes it soul touching animated film in recent times from Disney...

Plot:
After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy, the happiest Troll ever born, and the curmudgeonly Branch set off on a journey to rescue her friends.

Overall Review:
From the creators of Shrek comes smart, funny & fresh animated comedy of the year – TROLLS. Film directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn features the voices of Anna Kendrick & Justin Timberlake. Trolls is funny and sweet filled with great songs. The story is good, with relatable characters and situations and is predictable. However, what makes Trolls a must watch is its visual beauty filled with bright / vivid colours...

Pet's  Dragon

Pet’s Dragon

Duration: 103 minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 19-AUG-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3 / 5 (An Average Affair with the Dragon)

Plot:
The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

Overall Review:
After hits like: Zootopia, The Jungle Book & The BFG, I had high expectations from Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. But Disney has failed to deliver. Pete’s Dragon is nothing less than The Jungle Book meets The Good Dinosaur. Disney rolls the dice with a green fuzzy dragon Elliot, the biggest asset of the film. It works brilliantly mainly because they craft the illusion in such way that you believe he is really there...

Review: HERO

Hero

Genre: Action, Drama, Romance
Duration: 132 minutes
Language: Hindi
India Release Date: 11-SEP-2015

Plot:
A boy and a girl find themselves stuck in a whirlpool of such intense love that they would do anything, go to any extent and face all odds for the one they love.

Overall Review: Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty starrer “Hero” was high on the buzz, but film has turned out to be a fuzz. Film does not do any justice to the new comers. Film’s first half is fast, and the story doesn’t linger around the usual parameters of drama and turmoil but it loses its pace in the second half. An introduction scene of Sooraj Pancholi is the most structured framed scenes in the entire movie...

Plot:

Overall Review: Love, Peace & Humanity has no limits & Religion; Aise hai apne Bajrangi. An emotional saga of Bajrangi (Salman) and Sajida (Harshali) will take your breath away. A film with a lesson on humanity, breathtaking cinematography, powerful performances from three pillars: Salman, Nawazuddin and Harshali along with heart touching story with backfrop of Indo-Pak relationship will surely steal the debut show of Salman (as a producer) this EID...
