Animated films are one of the most loved genres for all age groups and needless to say, we all love watching it on television or movie theatre. Based on the globally successful video game Angry Birds, the makers decided to make a feature film and in the year 2016 the first animated film was released and was loved by masses. Now, taking the franchise forward, the sequel of Angry Birds 2 opened at theatres today.
Yes, all you Angry Birds' fanatics, its time to fly into the world of Red (Jason Sudeikis), Pigs land led by Leonard (Bill Hader) and Eagle Zeta (Leslie Jones). In a nutshell, Angry birds 2 is a cute and funny film, with a Bollywood angle of love, revenge and drama. You read that right!
It so happens that, Zeta, the eagle is all set to destroy the bird and pigs island as she is tired of staying in a frozen island, she has also turned ice cold and revengeful as Mighty Eagle who is Red’s best friend betrays her and walks away without marrying her. What happens next, is predictable for the Indian audience.
The film is a light take on how frenemies red and Leonard become friends, how Red, who is all by himself, finds a bird Silver whom he eventually, start to love. From pigs flying to chicklets having a baby sister, songs, touches of humour and lots of "aww moments" make the film a must-watch.
Director Thurop Van Orman and co-director John Rice have done a fine job and we can surely say that let yourself loose and forget all the worldly problems for good1 hour and 36 minutes. The voice performances by the ensemble cast are beyond perfection be it, Jason, Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Chuck, Danny McBride as Bomb or Bill Hader as Leonard charms us and doesn’t fail to put a smile on our face.
This Janamastmi weekend watch Angry Birds 2 with your loved one!
