Plot: Max( a terrier)’s life revolves around his owner Kathy who loves him and pampers him a lot. However, for him, their relationship hits a rough patch every day when she goes out of the house (for work) leaving him alone.
And it’s not just a feeling that only he goes through. It’s a feeling which every pet in the neighborhood goes through every day when their owner/s leave for work.
Things take a turn in the lives of all these pets, who live next to each other, when Kathy brings home another dog- Duke, who is now a threat to Max’s perception of a comfortable life.
How a fight between these two lands them up in trouble and how they come back home safely is what will always remain ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ for humans!
Direction: ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ is a complete delight for every pet owner out there, irrespective of what they own- a dog, a cat or even a hawk! And the reason for that is that they would easily be able to relate to the movie.
And for those who do not have a pet, well…this movie would give you just another reason to have one at your place!
A sweet, adorable and short adventure that brings together all the pets and the stray animals together on a combined mission, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ is filled with awesome visual gags that will leave you in splits.
Plus, the voice cast is too good; even though Kevin Hart’s antagonist bunny Snowball does get irritating at times.
However, the only department where the movie falls back is that it does not have anything new to offer! Yes, the movie lacks originality.
On the whole, it is worth the watch with the little ones in your family!
Combo-On-Offer: Drama + Comedy
Verdict: We give the ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ THUNDEROUS CLAPS for being an adorable adventure that will be loved by the entire family…especially the kids!
