RIO

RIO

In the screening of RIO that I attended, the English version was erroneously played for about 15 minutes. It was pretty enjoyable to be very frank, and I was apprehensive whether the Hindi version would match up to it. To my surprise, it did!

A pretty young blue macaw Blu (Shaan) is enjoying his life in a jungle before being ensnared and illegally taken to a small town. He's rescued by a young girl Linda. The two become the best of friends and even brush their teeth together. One fine day, a Brazilian ornithologist visits Linda and informs her that Blu is the last remaining male of their species. He requests Linda to allow Blu to be taken to Brazil, where a female Jewel (Sunidhi Chauhan) is waiting. Linda along with Blu arrives in Brazil. Shortly after Blu meets the spunky Jewel, they are captured and about to be smuggled.

Director Carlos Saldanha (ICE AGE) creates a wonderful tale, high on emotions. The relationship between Linda and Rio and also the brewing love between Rio and Jewel are endearing. Although the film lacks in the humour department, its script is strong enough to hold your attention. The animation is good but you wish there were more scenes in which you feel things come out from the screen to your auditorium, when you have your 3D glasses on. Renato Falc„o's cinematography is superb.

The moment Rio starts flying, there's a smile on your face cheering him. The carnival climax in Rio de Janeiro is riveting. The Indianised songs are simply hilarious.



Shaan rocks in the voice of Rio. Sunidhi Chauhan does an excellent job. A special word for Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey, who are uproarious as Blu's sidekicks.

RIO has enough drama to impress kids and adults alike. It surely flies high!

Rating: 3/5
