Ferdinand English Movie Review

This a wonderful animated movie which I enjoyed with my daughter of 5 years. Ferdinand, a bull with a big heart, is mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and taken away from his family. His return to his family with the help of his friends forms the adventure of this movie.


There is one particular scene in this movie in which an old lady who is watering her flower pots notices Ferdinand, scared she waters her sleeping cat on the window sill instead of the flower pot. My daughter saw that particular scene thrice. By the way, she is very fond of cats.

It is mesmerising to see the nature in the back drop: the animated field were flowers and green grass grows, birds chirp and sing, and Ferdinand goes around smelling the flowers. Also the view from the top of the mountain is too good in terms of animated movie.

What I like about animated movies is most of them have a good message for everyone, including adults. This one too does. It is a simple enjoyable story that has some funny moments to keep one entertained till the end.

My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended for entire family!


Kataka Kannada Movie Review

This movie has a good message against the use of  black magic which is set in the back drop of a beautiful village filled with greenery.  This is Ravi Basroor’s debut movie in Kannada which is promoted by Power Star Punith Rajkumar. It is said that the movie is inspired by true life incident.


Everyone has performed well in this movie. Especially, Baby Shalaga is the show stealer who is well supported by Ashok Raj and Spandana who play her parents in this supernatural thriller.  The movie is well made keeping it’s low budget in mind. Technically it is very good.

The cinematography by Sachin Basroor is very captivating. The special effects in the movie isn’t path breaking, but done reasonably well. So is the background score and a couple of songs that give meaning to this movie.

At the end the message by Punith is good. Climax is the best part of the film, as you start feeling for the characters of the movie and also the bad implications of the black magic.

My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.
