The King of Mugassa and the story of Yuvraj Simba, ‘The Lion King’ is once again in front of us. While this animated movie was introduced in the year 1994 in the form of the film, this time the photorealistic computer animated version is in front of us. While the live action technique used in the movie stays with the audience, Shahrukh Khan’s voice over is also the film’s life. Although there are some drawbacks of the film, due to which it goes away in the category of films like ‘The Jungle Book’ (Walt Disney).
Mufassa is a king, who wants all the animals in the forest from the heart. He wants the next king to be his son Simba, but his brother Skar Lion believes that he deserves the position of the king. On the other hand, Simba continues to innovate with his friend Nala to prove his bravery. In the meantime, Mifassa’s life goes away in an accident. Simba runs away from the jungle. At a new place, he meets Pamba Wild Boar and Timon Nevay. Both of them tell Simba about their phulashef ‘Hukuna Matata’.
The ‘Hukuna Matata’, the tone of the story, is always fun. Teeny Simba comes in the company of these new friends and learns to fill the stomach with insects. Vegetarian animals in the area are nervous at first seeing a lion’s child in the area, but when they realize that they have painted in the color of Pamba and Timon, they stop scaring him.
On the other hand, Simba’s mother Sarabhi Lioness, her childhood friend Nalla Lioness and the rest of the animal, are unsettled by the horror of Simba’s uncle Scar. Now, will Simba do something to change the situation or will you keep the ‘Hukuna Matata’ garland? It would be better to watch the movie to know this.
