Verdict: An extraordinary story made even better with splendiferous performances. There`s a constant debate on what the audience wants to see and what the audience should see. As of now, the consumer is king and the media we expose ourselves to caters to our desires. However, this is also the reason for some of the highest grossing []... ...Read full review
The film tells Barnum`s rags to riches story and explores how his meteoric rise to fame and fortune was muddled with allegations of exploiting the disabled for his circus.

This is what you ever want, this is what you`ll ever need and this is the line you`re greeted with the moment The Greatest Showman begins. A typical musical with nothing extraordinary in it but just enough happening to love everything about the film. Boasting of a cast including the likes of Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, and Zendaya among others, the musical, based on the life of America`s most popular showman PT Barnum, is a hit with the perfect balance between chaos and emotions, music and dance and of course the rise and fall and rise again success of the man of actually invented the spirit and form of circus. ...Read full review

Barnum and his troupe of talented oddballs and outsiders, `The Greatest Showman` tells an uplifting story in the old fashioned way of musicals. ...Read full review
Last year, Illumination Entertainment realised that a world of possibilities exists beyond rehashing Minion shorts and made Sing. The musical animated comedy had Matthew McConaughey play a broke music producer koala who is looking for talented anthropomorphic animals to launch a singing reality show. He finds a bunch of misfits who trust him with their future. ...Read full review
The biggest charge thrown at P T Barnum, the American showman known for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus, was that he was a fraud, who sold fraud. What can you call a film about his life no less than a cheerful musical that colours all the greys out, that marginalises all the people he exploited, that drowns out all the questions his life raises in song and dance, to give us a man who is a loving husband, a doting father, a dreamer, and, to top all fakes, a believer in giving every person a chance? ...Read full review
A film about a showman starring Hugh Jackman seems like a sure thing on paper weve already seen in The Prestige and Les Miserables that Jackman can elevate any material of this sort. The Greatest Showman, unfortunately doesnt benefit from his talent as it is bogged down by formulaic story beats, unexciting plotting and messy direction. ...Read full review
