Same old story. Poor boy meets rich girl. The girl is bound by the shackles of patriarchy while the poor boy's limitation is well; that he is poor. Not to say that the film does not have its moments. Aladin is an endearing Disney musical that has its shining parts. The lead's comic timings, and the princess' witty retorts are just a few of them. It is always so wonderful to observe how films tailorcut their tone to suit the times. The dialogues in the film Aladin similarly have pretty much got a millennial twang to them. I am not biased i my contention that the best characters are actually the monkey and the flying carpet.
As an afterthought- it just seems to me that Disney films almost have a copyright on magic and happy endings.( Not that it is a bad thing but it just offers a sort of Utopian mirage to the real world, which is actually full of struggles, failure and well, not-so-happy endings). They could work on the choreography as well, because I felt that it tended to fall into stereotypes.
But I would definitely reccommend this film to uplift you mood levels to take a magical ride through the smokescreen of everything happy that Disney unfailingly always provides.
