Deaf critic movie review of Hanuman Da' Damdaar
June 13, 2017
A hearing perspective:
Hanuman Da' Damdaar is a Hindi animated adventure film directed by Ruchi Narain.
The film features the voices of Salman Khan as Hanuman, Raveena Tandon as Anjani (mother of Hanuman), Saurabh Shukla as Kesari (father of Hanuman), Hussain Dalal as Garuda, Kunal Khemu as Indra, Chunky Pandey as a tourist guide, Javed Akhtar as Valmiki, Vinay Pathak as Popat Sharma and Makrand Deshpande as Vishrav.
The film starts with the sage Narad telling Valmiki that there is a better version of Ramayana written by Hanuman.
Valmiki goes on to read Hanuman's Ramayana written beautifully on the stones of the mountains and praises Hanuman.
But when Valmiki expresses his concerns of who will read his Ramayana, Hanuman moves and destroys the entire mountain having his Ramayana in the nearest ocean.
Hanuman's power of sacrifice and surrender makes Valmiki declare him as the highest devotee of Lord Rama.
The film then shows Hanuman describing his childhood story of how he lived happily with his mother Anjani and father Senapati Kesari.
However, a negative incident makes baby Hanuman become a scared little boy and forget how brave he was before.
The film shows how Garuda enters Hanuman's life and helps him to transform from a Bhola-Bhala Bajrangi to Hanuman Da' Damdaar.
The film gives a simple yet meaningful message that there exists a lion inside even the weakest person.
The film is a one-time watch for good quality voice-overs of the characters, average visual effects, funny and entertaining dialogues.
