English Name: Minions
"Minions", the prequel to "Despicable me" is one helluva film where yellow pill like one eyed creatures chattering gibberish and even amusing us with their endearing tactics which may seem tad silly make for paisa vasool entertainment.The cinema hall where I sat greeted the principal protagonists Kevin, Stuart and Bob, the Minions with loud cheers that are only reserved for the Superstar and Khans.Nice to see animation characters whip up a frenzy ans cast a spell.
Sandra Bullock voices Scarlett Overkill, A Femme fatale fashionista with vengeance.The chemistry between the Minions and her crackles on screen.Smaller characters like a sewer rat whom Bob befriends in the 2nd half and the ragged teddy bear he carries all through out linger in your minds.The bigger rounds of applause was however reserved for Mr.Despicable in a special appearence towards the end (whom the Minions take to as their master in the sequel).
Minions is such a charmer of a film, fun guaranteed at the cinemas and a complete family entertainer.Never before have I seen adults and children hooting and cheering animated characters with such enthusiasm and live wire energy.Highly recommended.
