Beauty and the Beast Movie Review
Rating :- 4/5 Reviewed by: Renuka Vyavahare Site: TimesofIndia
The special effects, sound, costumes, voice-overs, songs – overall production values are first-rate. They make you live the fairy-tale as you are transported to the castle along with Belle, experiencing her adventure.What essentially works for ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is its relevance. It stands out because no matter how old the tale, it holds significance especially today, when smart phones and selfies have turned us all into beauty loving beasts.

The film, even with all its glorious animation, sets and songs, struggles to drive home a fresh new perspective on the fairytale we have loved for ages. Much like Cinderella (the 2015 live action adaptation), this too makes for a good revisit to the classic but you forget about it as soon as you step out of the theatre. Costumes and colour correction can only take you as far when you have no new story to tell.

Not much of the original story has been changed, and while that guarantees that the film will remain a classic, it might leave the more dubious thought if it was worth it. As Beauty And The Beast ends, it leaves me with a satisfied feeling in my stomach, one that you get after finishing a remarkable movie or book. A cinematic experience like this one doesn’t come by too often.

Also interesting is the discussion the film can provide to the young ones watching the film – about the moral consequences of one’s actions and humans’ natural proclivity towards greed. A little less interesting, however, is Watson as Belle — it’s hard to pinpoint what exactly is disappointing about her but there’s little newness that she brings from her work in the Harry Potter films. Her persona is so naturally ‘wealthy’ and recognizable that it’s hard to completely believe she’s playing someone else. A newcomer in the role would probably have been a much better choice.

This gloriously old-fashioned musical with gee-whiz trappings is a dazzling beauty to behold (with enough Rococo gold decor to gild all of Trump’s properties) and is anything but a beastly re-interpretation of a fairy tale as old as time. Also welcome is the more inclusive display of love in its various forms, which go beyond the sweetly awkward courtship between brainy, brave and independent-minded bookworm Belle (Emma Watson).
