Hanuman-Da-Damdaar-Wallpaper-HD-17749Hanuman Da’ Damdaar takes you on an exciting adventure that depicts the tale of Hanuman’s childhood. Laced with really copacetic dialogue with contemporary lines along with Bollywood references, the film makes sure it appeals to both, its young audience as well as adults.

Salman Khan’s boisterous voice coupled with his famous lines like Ek baar jo maine commitment kardi fir main aapne aap ki bhi nahi sunta, also mujhe par ek ehssan karna ki mujhe par koi ehsaan na karna infuse life and vibrancy into the character of a grown-up Hanuman.

The film opens with Valmiki telling a grown-up Hanuman that everyone will be interested in the story which Hanuman has written as opposed to the one that Valmiki has penned. So Hanuman destroys what he has written for Valmiki.

Then the story rewinds to when the little Maruti loses his memory after Indra’s attack and is under house arrest. He then becomes very scared of even little things. Once he steps into the outside world he discovers his true potential and superpowers.

As a writer Ruchi Narain has worked brilliantly on the screenplay and the dialogue. The story connects instantly and the lightness of the script makes it relatable to kids. Directorially, presenting her vision to the screen is another marvel. Animation is top-notch.

The voice-over by Salman Khan is limited on the screen but his typical style makes it thoroughly entertaining. Also the voice-overs by Javed Akhtar, Raveena Tandon, Makrand Deshpande, Saurabh Shukla, Kunal Kemmu, Sneha Khanwalkar, Chunky Panday and Vinay Pathak support the characters well.

Verdict: An entertaining family watch.
