Frozen 2 is now playing out in your nearest cinemas halls and yesterday, I got the chance to watch this much-awaited Disney movie which released around six years after Frozen. With the infamous voice cast – Idina Menzel – Elsa, Kristen Bell – Anna, Josh Gad – Olaf and Jonathan Groff – Kristoff, the story moves forward right from where the first part ended in the fairy-tale land of Arendelle.
Elsa starts to hear a mysterious voice calling her out in the enchanted forest. She follows it and accidentally awakes the elemental spirits that force everybody in the kingdom to vacate. Knowing that Elsa decides to discover the truth about her powers and the Kingdom to set things right. With Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven then embark on a journey to the North following the mysterious voice.
The movie has eleven soundtracks and as Elsa voiced by Idina Menzel, had pepped up us to ‘Let it Go’ the first time around, this time she sings ‘Into the Unknown’ while responding to the call. It is safe to say that it is the new anthem that we are going to hear and sing for a long time. The original soundtrack by Panic! At the Disco (end credits song) is also worth becoming the fearsome earworm from Frozen. It can swing around one’s brain as it’s undoubtedly as catchy.
The Director duo Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee has this time carefully modulated the film to get in touch with the widest probable audience whilst offering plenty enough for the adults to think that at least these are strong female characters. The absence of a villain from the film can be a concern for many. However, the center stays on sisterhood that is commendable. Maybe the absence of a bad character, such as Hans in the predecessor, makes the storyline missing in drama. However the same was completely balanced by Olaf, throughout the film and particularly when he tells the Northuldra people and troop of Arendellian soldiers about what happens in the first part.
• Although Frozen was about its music, nevertheless Frozen 2 has so many soundtracks that it will leave you wondering the length of the song.
• The detailing of every aspect of the movie is worked out remarkably such as details on the scarf of Queen Iduna(Elsa and Anna’s mother)
• The younger audience is not likely to be so fretted concerning the plot as Olaf will keep them delighted all through.
• Wait to see the look of Ice Queen when she discovers the source of her power. Her dress transforms into an amazing white flowy dress and I liked it more than the blue dress from Frozen.
In a nutshell, although Frozen 2 has its flaws, and may not leave you the same feeling as Frozen did, however, it will keep you sit by and let it overcome you. At least, a few parts of it will. So watch it with your kids at your nearest cinema halls and enjoy it for the next 103 mins.
