Plot: It has been a year since Marlin and his friend Dory, who suffers from short term memory loss, had set out on a journey across the oceans to find Nemo. A small incident triggers off Dory’s memory about her parents and the blue tang fish, along with her ‘family’ Marlin and Nemo, sets out one journey once again all the way to California in order to re-unite with her parents and get back her childhood.
Direction: Andrew Stanton returns with the sequel of the animation movie that once proves to a game-changer of sorts. And despite the gap of 13 years, what doesn’t change is continuing with the simplicity of the movie.
While the first one had Dory has a mere supporting character, this one has the one with the imperfections playing the lead. It just doesn’t restrict itself to the oceans, but enters the land of the humans, and has the sea animals creating a havoc without hurting each other- even if they showcase the humans trapping the animals every now and then.
As the case is with every animation movie- attention to the minute details and mannerisms of the characters makes this one an enjoyable watch along with each of them having their own humor. The cuteness factor doubles as we get to see the little Nemo as well as the emotional flashbacks from Dory’s childhood. And the ending might make you shed a tear or two.
Having said that, the movie lacks a novelty factor and the magic which made ‘Finding Nemo’ a favorite amongst the audience.
Combo-On-Offer: Comedy + Drama
Verdict: We give ‘Finding Dory’ CLAPS for being a humorous and wonderful ride across the oceans after 13 years that can be seen with the entire family!
