The Lion King (Movie; Hotstar)

The formula never fails, and Disney never ceases to amaze. The remake of the 1994 animated classic, slightly darker and closer to a Shakespearean tragedy this time, will bowl you over with its sheer artistry. The computer generated African savannah landscape and its wild animals seem straight out of some NatGeo wildlife documentary – right from the very opening scene in which the camera pans the Pride lands where the lion king Mufasa introduces his new born cub as his future successor to the stampede in which Mufasa is killed under the thundering buffalo heels to the final showdown where Simba avenges his father’s murder to become the king. Equally commendable is the voice cast. Go for it and just don’t compare it with the original animated one, even though most of it is a scene by scene remake.
