It’s Showtime!

Director: Michael Gracey

Writers: Jenny Bicks, Bill Condon

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya

Release Date: December 29, 2017

2017’s biggest musical is finally coming to theatres this month. The Greatest Showman – inspired by the story of how P. T. Barnum started the Barnum & Bailey Circus – is a biographical period musical drama film directed by Michael Gracey. It stars the Wolverine of Hollywood, Hugh Jackman, as P. T. Barnum, paired opposite Michelle Williams, who plays his wife. Other members of the circus include Zac Efron (a stage actor), Zendaya (a trapeze artist), Rebecca Ferguson (a singer), Keala Settle (a bearded woman), and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (an acrobat). Prior to its release, the film has already received three Golden Globe nominations – Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy)Best Actor (Comedy or Musical) for Jackman, and Best Original Song for ‘This is Me’. Needless to say, the release is much-awaited to see if the movie can live up to its hype.

The story of The Greatest Showman shows the journey of Barnum since he loses his job as a tailor. Unemployment pushes him towards exploring his creative ideas and he gatheres a unique crew to put up a first-of-its-kind circus. This later became the famous traveling Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which derived much flak from crowds for its portrayal of physical abnormalities. Yet, Barnum was the first showman of his kind and his circus led to the idea of what we today call ‘showbusiness’. Complete with music and dance performances, his story is narrated in a magical way – pleasing to both the eyes and the ears.

While The Greatest Showman has a Christmas release in most parts of the world, here in India, the musical is slated to release on the 29th of December. We hope to end this year on a mesmerizing note and there is nothing better than watching this movie in its full glory in theatres.

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
