Princess Merida does everything that a princess ought not to do -- she excels in archery, speaks her heart out loud and clear, and moves around shabbily with hair unkempt. Of course, there is a price she has to pay for all that she does....
what's so brave about Brave? The very Princess in question, Merida (Kelly Macdonald), who does not believe in playing by the rules come what may. So much so, she wants a bow and arrow on her birthday unlike the princess next door. In fact, she surely is in for a big fan following amongst rebellious teens this weekend. Why? She hates perfection. She hates rules and regulations. And she hates being told what to do and not to do. For her, life is all about being free to choose... free to express... free to fly... even if that means there's danger ahead. The idea is pretty clear (read brave) in this animation movie -- As long as you make your own choice, you are ready to take things in your stride... and come out winner eventually. Case in point, keep praying for your nagging parents to change, but just be ready to set things right if that change is not for good, but far, far worse.
The animation is bright, colourful and magical. Adding to that is the scenic beauty, soothing music and a couple of sweet melodies. Sprinkle that with the usual magical spells, legendary tales of years gone by and humourous moments to get your dose of weekend entertainment. As for those on the lookout for something emotional, there's the do-not-miss bonding between the King, Queen and their daughter.
But then it's once again the very girl power that takes you by surprise, specially when Princess Merida decides to change the rules of the games in this movie that presents Hollywood's version of our very own swayamvar. Woman(iya) power indeed!.
I loved it!! I was smiling the whole day after watching it. The scene in which the queen ( a bear now ) walks in on her sons messing up the decor of a room they don't take a second to recognize her ( now is hairy and 7 feet tall and looks nothing like a human being ) and start to sheepishly clear away the mess under her supervision -- was very endearing. :)
As a Pixar movie, I think that the storyline was a little weak, But Brave is very much better than Cars 2 and the 3D effects were spectacular. If compared with Madagascar 3, I think Madagascar 3 was better but don't give this a miss too!
