Storks: Film Review – Well-Delivered

Verdict: The cutest film you’ll see this year.
 
The film industry has evolved greatly in the past decade. Millennial movies are more progressive, diverse and less offensive. Even children’s animated movies have changed over the years. Disney princesses are no longer damsels in distress, but are shown as powerful and independent women. More communities are represented in films, and black-and-white characters are slowly disappearing. Take Zootopia, in which carnivores were not shown as blood-thirsty beasts, or the upcoming film Trolls, in which trolls are not big and hairy monsters, but cuddly little creatures. Storks tries to do that, too, and the result is a cute, funny and extremely progressive movie – the kind children need to watch more.

Storks, like the name suggests, is about a community of storks, who are in the delivery business. They work in a place called Cornerstone, whose motto is ‘Always Deliver’. The current CEO, Hunter (Kelsey Grammer), is a stork who decided to move on from the practice of delivering babies to packages. Cornerstone houses storks, and many other kinds of birds, and one human girl, Tulip (Katie Crown). Tulip was the last baby made by Cornerstone, before the business was shut down. As her home address was lost, the storks took her in. But the movie is largely based on a hard-working stork named Junior (Andy Samberg), who is to be promoted. The promotional task given to him by Hunter is to fire Tulip. Junior falters in his task and instead confines Tulip to the mail business, telling her to never leave the mail room. There, Tulip does not have much to do as no one writes to the storks since they stopped baby-making. But a letter from a lonely child far, far away changes everything. Suddenly, a new baby is made and now Junior and Tulip have to deliver it to its family, before Hunter finds out.

Storks was definitely not made just for kids. Elements like parenthood and work culture that are discussed in the movie resonate better with adults. Yet, there’s plenty for kids to enjoy. Other than the main characters, the wolves (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) are likely to derive the most laughs. Even the antics of Pigeon Toady (Stephen Kramer Glickman), who adults will relate to as that annoying guy in office, will leave the kids in splits. While the plot is unique, the script is full of dry humor, sarcastic comebacks and pop culture references – a classic animated movie trait these days. The journey from Cornerstone to delivering the baby is an engaging one, full of adventure and mishaps, which are likely to keep you at the edge of your seat, while rolling with laughter. Even baby haters can’t help but fall in love with all the cuteness this movie has to offer.

Why You Should Watch This Movie:

Adventure, humor, emotions – Storks has it all. This is the cutest movie of the year, and should not be missed. If that does not appeal to you, simply watch it for the funny wolves. Their creative skills will leave you amazed.

6 Years of Piku: 5 Unknown facts about the Deepika Padukone, Irrfan Khan, Amitabh Bachchan starrer

1. Did you know that the original choice for the title role was not Deepika Padukone? It was Parineeti Chopra. Shoojit went to Parineeti to play the Big B’s beleaguered daughter in Piku. But PC Jr argued she was already doing a father-daughter film Daawat-e-Ishq. Director Shoojir Sircar shrugged and rang Deepika’s doorbell. As luck would have it, Daawat-e-Ishq bombed. Piku was a cult success. Daane-daane pe likha hota hai khane wale ka naam. Same goes for roles.

Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali reinitiate talks for Izhaar; Shah Rukh to play a man who cycles to Norway for love

Shah Rukh Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali created magic on screen almost two decades ago with Devdas. But ever since, they have never worked together in a film. But sources say they were very close to reuniting on screen on several films. SLB had offered SRK both Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat but talks fell through. In fact, there were also rumours that the director wanted to cast Salman Khan and Shah Rukh together in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam 2. That also never materialised. Then, there was the Sahir Ludhianvi biopic that SLB was producing. So there have been a few misses for the actor-director duo.

BREAKING: Radhe – Your Most Wanted Bhai makers voluntarily make 21 cuts and modifications after getting censor certificate

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had always been seen as a spoilsport. Many viewers have cried foul since years over CBFC’s idea of chopping off ‘objectionable’ scenes and thereby compromising on the freedom of expression of the makers. This perception of CBFC got a boost under the chairmanship of Pahlaj Nihalani. Though he vacated the post in 2017, the perception remains.
