Review: This is a film about making your dreams come true. It is about following your desires to whichever unexplored corner they take you to, and most importantly this is a film about being yourself! A visual spectacle, "The Greatest Showman" tells the touching tale of a man who opened the first ever circus! A unique yet simple story put together on screen with so much grace and all heart is so refreshing. The effortlessly thrilling narrative is just lovely! Foot tapping music helps in driving the marvel of a story forward. Mostly , all the artists in the circus were simply dancing and it would have been nice to see them trying their hands at different stunts. Nevertheless, that doesn't stop the movie form treading on the path of victory , a victory so glorious, achieved just by a novel and lucid idea. This movie is a celebration of life and makes one acquainted with the beauty of human kind and the fact that everyone is special in their own way.
Hugh Jackman's transformation from the murderous Wolverine into the wide eyed dreamer who wears his heart on his sleeves is commendable. He's seen singing here as well! Quite a talented ring master one would say! Zac Efron is back again and is as delightful as ever! It is so great to watch him singing on screen again , the last I can remember seeing him do so was during his High school musical days! He brought a certain earnestness to the role which was worth watching! Another Disney discovery, Zendaya is here too and she mesmerises you with her trapeze stunts. I must add that She has quite a melodious voice! I really wish that Zac and Zendaya had a bigger part to play in the movie. Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson are good too!
Please do go and watch this stunning movie that is pleasing to the eyes and the heart! You come out of the theatre feeling so much better about yourselves!
