Mary Poppins Returns

*ing: Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep

Rated: 7/10

The mythical and legendary nanny is back on screen after very many decades but you seamlessly pick up from the last time you left her. She is zanny, funny, magical and beautiful all at the same time in the same old smoky London and the family she served in her earlier avtaar.

There’s Colin Firth too but not as the good guy. However, Firth fans need not break their heart over his image makeover as he is just a two-bit entry in the proceedings otherwise living up to the tag of Disney magical musicals. There’s Meryl Streep too in her short but imposing presence that lends weight of stardom to a film otherwise helmed to near perfection by the highly gifted Emily Blunt.

Blunt lives in the skin of Mary Poppins from the moment she glides down a kite accident and takes charge of the widower and his three children without giving him an option.

Disney movies, needless to say, are beautifully landscaped and this one is no exception, looks as it is straight from a picture gallery where the brush splashes not only colour but also mood, emotion, love, music and all else that is related to the good old family drama. All must go and pay their respects.
