Aladdin – A Disney Movie

A Movie Review by Inesh Shenoy

Aladdin is a new Disney movie directed by Guy Richie. The movie has real people acting in it, along with very good animation and computer graphics. It also has a nice combination of songs. Thanks to the #StarMoviesSecretScreening, we got to watch the movie a day before it released in the City theatres. 

Here we are with our very own #StarMoviesSecretScreening boarding passes to watch Aladdin!

Aladdin is a poor street boy who lives in Agrabah with his pet monkey Abu. Agrabah is a small city ruled by the Sultan. Princess Jasmine is the Sultan’s daughter. She has a pet tiger named Rajah. Aladdin and Princess Jasmine fall in love, but there is a rule in the Kingdom that the princess can only marry a prince.  

Listen to the review directly from Inesh Shenoy

Jafar is the Grand Vizier of the kingdom. He is a sorcerer and wants to find a legendary magical lamp. With that lamp he wants to be the most powerful being in the world, and also be the Sultan of the Kingdom. Jafar promises Aladdin that if he gets the lamp for him, he will make him a prince. The lamp is inside a cave. Aladdin goes inside the Cave of Wonders, but gets trapped inside. Aladdin also frees a magic carpet inside the magical cave. 

The Star Movies people asked us to take a photo when the the magic lamp first appeared!

Not knowing what the lamp is, he rubs it and a huge Genie appears. The Genie says he can grant him three wishes. With the Genie’s help, Aladdin and Abu escape from the cave with the lamp and the magic carpet. Now Jafar is after Aladdin, wanting to get the lamp and the Genie. Jafar manages to grab the lamp from Aladdin and now that he controls the Genie, he appoints himself as the Sultan and takes over the kingdom. 

Can Aladdin defeat Jafar with his pet monkey Abu and the magic carpet?  How can they fight Jafar now that he is the master of the genie too? What will happen to Princess Jasmine? To know what happens next, you have to watch Disney’s Aladdin movie.  

I loved all the songs in the movie. My favourite song was “Friend Like Me”,  by Will Smith. I also liked the song Speechless, sung by Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine in the movie. It is a very powerful and touching song, and plays an important role in the movie.  Another favourite song of mine from this movie is “Prince Ali”. This song is also  sung by Will Smith. 

Enjoying popcorn as we wait for the movie to start!

Will Smith did an amazing job acting as the Genie, and I loved his role.I also loved his songs. Mena Massoud plays Aladdin and Princess Jasmine is played by Naomi Scott. I liked both their roles a lot. I also liked Jafar’s character, because of all the sorcery and magic he shows. 

I loved the movie a lot. I think you should watch this movie because it is a really magical and fun movie.

Becoming Super-Heroes!

We love Comic Con! We have been going to Comic Con Bangalore right from the start. The first time we just went to see and meet the different comic book characters. We had a lot of fun.

Listen to this story directly from Ishaan

Then our dear Peter-maama and Claudia-maami surprised us by sending a set of superhero costumes from Scotland! This helped us to be Hulk, Spiderman, and Captain America.

And that is how we have gone to Comic Con for the last few years! The first time, it was just the two of us – Inesh and Ishaan. We went dressed as Captain America and Hulk. It was 2014 and Iresh was less than 3 years old!

Inesh & Ishaan turn into Captain America & The Hulk

But all the fun really started in 2015 when Iresh took over his favourite character, Captain America. With a broken arm too!

Young Iresh makes his first appearance as Cap’n America!

Now SO MANY PEOPLE wanted to take photographs with him! It was like everybody wanted to take photographs with him and us! We were even featured on the Comic Con Facebook Page and also in a news article on! We went this year too!

Iresh and Inesh and Captain & Hulk make the Comic Con Official FB Page! (2015)

That time, a comics stall owner gifted Iresh the Captain’s Shield! This time, Iresh was gifted a signed portrait of the Captain by the artist Eugene Joseph (@genesjournal)!! He really has the best time among all of us! Sometimes we are jealous of him. Very jealous!

A happy Iresh poses with Eugene Joseph and his amazing gift!

Anyway, we have fun too as a lot of big people and other cosplay characters pose for photos with us. Here are some of our favourite photos from this year’s Comic Con Bangalore.

After all that fun, we are now waiting for Captain Marvel to launch. The movie is coming on March 8th and that is only a few weeks away!

We can’t wait to watch it! We are also hoping that @StarMoviesIndia will invite us for a #StarMoviesSecretScreening and give us a chance to see Captain Marvel before everybody else in the world!

After all, we are #SecretKeepers too!

We are busy writing…

Hi, big people and our little friends!

Sorry! We are still busy writing reviews for you. Reading the books and then writing about them takes us a long time. And we have already posted so many reviews for you to read!

Inesh and Ishaan are seen sitting at their desk, busy penning their thoughts into their books.
The iTwins are busy penning their thoughts for a book and a movie!

So we will be slowing down our reviews to three a week. Sometimes we will post more. Sometimes we may be forced to post less. This will also give you enough time to catch up on all our reviews. Also it will give you time to read the books we are recommending! And of course watch the movies too!

Do you agree with us? What do you think of our reviews? Are you liking them? Are there any books that you want us to read? What about movies?

Please write in to us! We are waiting to hear from you.

See you soon!
