With the release of yet another take on the Cinderella story of Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Cinderella’, the question now if how it will stand on its own considering we have seen the story on the big screen a lot of times already. Does it offer something new to the table? I kept my expectations lowered to nothing going to see this movie, and you know what, I actually like this movie.
The reason why this film succeeded in many ways compared to say ‘Maleficent’ is that it never draws itself to the “dark” and “moody” plot twist that became a thing nowadays. Instead, it pays utmost respect to the 1950 animated classic by retaining its style and design. Kenneth Branagh sure does succeed in bringing this story for the modern audience by applying the “Shakespeare-an” trademark he was known for in his films.
The geek rates it 8/10!
‘Cinderella’ is now showing in cinemas nationwide from Walt Disney Pictures!
