Director - Lasse Hallström

A hearing perspective:

American film ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ is a movie from a dog’s perspective. It has comedy, drama and adventure.

The film starts with a young boy Ethan who saves a dog and names him Bailey.

Ethan and Bailey enjoy being together and form a strong bond of love and care for each other.

As years pass, Ethan grows into a big and strong high school football player who falls in love with his classmate Hannah.

Due to a sudden turn of events, Ethan badly fractures his leg which makes him feel low and he breaks off his relationship with Hannah.

After sometime, an aged Bailey slowly dies at the hospital after a teary goodbye with Ethan.

The film surprises the audience when Bailey takes a new birth not once, but thrice, as Ellie, Tino and Buddy.

Each time, he is born again, the film shows his story from life to death, except in the life as Buddy, where he meets his original owner Ethan again.

The film shows how dogs teach humans to laugh, love and live.

There were lots of cuteness and emotional moments in this film.

I simply forgot myself and got immersed in the film for one and half hour.

The film deserves all the appreciation and support for its beautiful direction, awesome storyline and lovely dogs.

The film is an amazing experience to see life differently. Go for this and you won’t regret. :)
