Movie Review: Moana


Over the years, the mega production house Disney once synonymous for its ‘Princess' films diversified into offering different cinema. Now after the 2013 film FROZEN that introduced a new Disney princess named Elsa, we see Disney reveal yet another princess of sorts with MOANA.

Basically, Moana, an animated musical fantasy adventure film featuring the voices of Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger and Alan Tudyk, tells the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When blight strikes her island, making coconuts rot on the trees and fishing boats return empty, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod responsible for this disaster, and hopes to save her people. But will the film that sets up a whole new world work with the audience is what we analyse.

MOANA starts off with the story of Maui (Dwayne Johnson) a demigod of the wind and seas who with a magical hook manages to pull islands out of the sea, ending up stealing the heart of Te Fiti, an island goddess who created life. With her heart gone, the darkness sets in, laying waste to the living while slowly spreading across the world. In the meantime, Moana Waialiki (Auli'i Cravalho), a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators, leads an idyllic life oblivious to the fate that is headed her way. When the darkness starts to encroach on her island, whose chief Moana is set to become, the Young Turk must set off on an epic journey to find the heart of Te Fiti, locate Maui and replace the heart.

Right from the start, the viewer is thrown into a make believe animated world where everything seems more colourful if not larger than life. The more

And this fight is certainly going to be the highlight of the show

Viewers of Bigg Boss 8 will finally get to witness some major drama in tonight's episode of the high voltage reality show. Gautam Gulati has once again hurled abuses, but this time not at Karishma Tanna, instead at Captain and wild card entry of the Bigg Boss house, Ali Quli Mirza.

And that triggers a major fight between the two. Gautam abused Ali for something, and the latter didn't take it jokingly, he screamed “gaali kyun di” and also shouted saying ”aankhen nikaal dunga”. Of course, a lot of tamashaa took place and both Ali and Gautam got really aggressive with each other. In fact, Ali, as he said was literally on the verge of taking Gautam's eyes off. But then as you know, rules of the Bigg Boss house do not permit that. Amidst all this, if you are wondering what was that abuse that Gautam hurled at Ali, it was bh*****d. Well, that's what our bitchy birdie from Lonavala informs us.

All said and done, this fight between Gautam and Ali will certainly be the highlight of the show. And honestly, we were waiting for something like this to happen. Now that it has happened, it will help to boost some TRPs of Salman Khan‘s show, we are sure of it. more
