Are you as eager as us given that the summers are after all here? Study shows that children are frazzled in school with their academics, assignments, the social scene, and all the other activities that keep them active. They want time to chill and lighten up and summer holidays are generally filled with a lot of enjoyment with family and friends and open-air activities.
Moreover, following stimulating picnics on beaches and resorts, playing with friends, swimming in the pool, or otherwise playing cricket and getting exercise, most kids get indoors and look forward to relaxing with their preferred TV shows.
&pictures – India’s top mass Hindi film channel - presents a prospect of an ideal afternoon for kids and make sure that they watch a few blockbusters with a delicate life lesson pooled in the most engaging way.
It’s newest summer film fiesta, ‘Kiddies Express’, takes audiences on a fun-filled outing with compelling global successes along with a lot of learning. Starting from Monday, 9th May, it will air daily at 12 noon upto Friday, 13th May.
Get on board the &pictures ‘Kiddies Express’ that will present the following five movies that will carry your children into a land of imagination:-
Kung Fu Panda
In the Valley of Peace, Po the Panda, finds himself chosen as the Dragon Warrior in spite of the reality that he is overweight and a total beginner at martial arts. The film is directed by John Stevenson and Mark Osborne and stars the voices of veteran Hollywood talent like Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, Ian McShane, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, David Cross, Randall Duk Kim, James Hong, and Jackie Chan.
An excerpt from the film:
Po: “Maybe I should just quit and go back to making noodles.”
Oogway: “Quit, don't quit... Noodles, don't noodles... You are too concerned about what was and what will be. There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”
This movie showcases the tale of four animals who have spent their lives in idyllic internment in Manhattan’s Central Park Zoo. Chris Rock voices Marty, a cynical zebra is all set for a change after ten years of comfy incarceration at the Zoo.
He flees for the green fields of Connecticut, prompting a rescue operation by his best friends: the Zoo's star draw Alex the lion (Ben Stiller), a domineering hippo named Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith), and the gauche, hypochondriac giraffe Melman (David Schwimmer). They are all of a sudden shipped back to Africa and end up getting stranded on the island of Madagascar.
The movie teaches us to celebrate all that existence throws our means just as like Kurt Vonnegut said, “Enjoy the little things in life cause one day you’ll look back and realise that they were the big things!”
Stuart Little 2
In the midst of delicate wittiness, loveable characters, a great screenplay by Bruce Joel Rubin (Academy Award-winner, “Ghost”), Stuart Little 2 is one of the finest family films of the summer.
The story begins with Stuart’s brother, George (Jonathan Lipnicki has given his voice) having found a new friend to have fun with, leaving Stuart (brilliantly voiced by Michael J. Fox) feeling left out. His mother Mrs. Little (Geena Davis’ voice) is jealous of her tiny younger son after he barely escapes an injury in a soccer fixture.
His father (voice over by Hugh Laurie) sympathizes, but reminds Stuart of an old family adage, “Always look for the silver lining in the cloud.” The silver lining appears when Stuart rescues a homeless bird named Margelo (voiced by Melanie Griffith) from the sinister Falcon. They become friends and all is well until Margelo disappears one night.
Stuart is convinced that Falcon is conscientious and ventures out with the family cat Snowbell (voiced by Nathan Lane) to salvage her. Stuart Little 2 is a must-watch movie for its characters, dialogue, composition and animation and entertaining moments. Stuart Little is brave and modest while Snowbell is very funny.
This visually remarkable movie provides hearty amusement for kids with Stuart enlightening us with some solemn companionship goals like strength of mind, faith, esteem, and recognition.
Based on a dazzling picture book story of the same name by Chris Van Allsberg, Jumanji takes us in the course of a stunning exquisite escapade and makes it into a breathtaking outing that defies everything. The brilliant amalgamation of adventure and pleasantry are the big attractions. An eternal adventure movie, Jumanji is in relation to two kids who play a magical board game.
While playing it, they let go an adult ensnared in the game. They come across different dangers which will come to an end only when the game is finished. The movie was written by Greg Taylor, Jonathan Hensleigh and Jim Strain. It stars Robin Williams, Kirsten Dunst, David Alan Grier, Bonnie Hunt, Jonathan Hyde and Bebe Neuwirth.
A snappy description and a number of really astonishing technical expertise coalesce to craft Mr Go one of the top family films with big laughs, big emotion and even bigger thrills. Its appealing plot offers a meticulously pleasant experience for all ages. It is based on the classic 1980s comic '7th Baseball Club', the ostensible character refers to a 285 kg circus gorilla who is the first to be recruited by a savvy baseball manager to join the professional Korean Baseball League.
Setting the arena for the gorilla Ling Ling's expedition to Korea is the Great Sichuan Earthquake in 2008, which causes the death of 15- year old Wei Wei's (Jiao Xu) grandfather and leaves her in charge of his circus with a huge debt over their heads. As debtors pester her, Wei Wei is left beleaguered on how to save the circus and the forty other orphans who stay under its roof.
And so, when the wily Sung (Korean actor Sung Dong-il) comes in to lend a hand, she readily accepts his bid to make over Ling Ling into a baseball star. Dreaming of success, Weiwei and Ling Ling go to South Korea and Ling Ling promptly becomes a superstar in the baseball league.
What makes it a must-see movie is that it makes you smirk with its gratifying, touching and inspiring narrative.
