Michael Bond’s classic Paddington franchise has found its cinematic entry.
When a bear is extremely courteous, that itself draws the attention of the children. And when the bear, who hails from Peru, is presented in a film with loads of comedy, should I say that it’s a treat for children? Well, you should watch the film to accept my statement.
The young hero, the courageous Paddington bear, journeys all the way to London from Peru, since his locale is destroyed. He has nothing with him except marmalade, which was given to him by his aunt Lucy. His aunt convinces him that the British takes care of the children evacuated by war. While in London, Paddington is for a short period taken care of by the Browns (who are exceptionally good to him inspite of the problems they face). Now watch the movie to know how it proceeds, whether it is predictable or unpredictable…..
The star ensemble is amazing. Ben Whishaw adds life to the gentle bear through his earnest voice. Also, the CGI-animated bear’s “performance” is quite expressive. Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters and Nicole Kidman do their parts in a convincing manner.
Paul King, who is famous for The Mighty Boosh, a television series, has helmed direction for Paddington. He has handled the movie in such a way that it proves a convincing treat to the children. The movie is produced by Heydey Films, which has given us the Harry Potter series.
What’s not there?
The script could have been given more flesh.
A film that will vibe well with the target audience.
