&pictures to premiere ‘The BFG’ in Hindi on 20 May
MUMBAI: Hindi movie channel &pictures is all set to premiere ‘The BFG’ in Hindi on 20 May at 12 noon. The premiere will drop curtains on the on-going Summer Holiday Film Festival.
Directed and co-produced by three time Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, the film is based on the novel of the same name, written by Roald Dahl. A Walt Disney Pictures production, it captures the beautiful relationship between its two protagonists, which is nothing short of a fairy-tale.
‘The BFG’ begins with Sophie, a 7-year-old orphan suffering from insomnia. One day, while reading through the night, she sees a giant outside her room who takes her away to the Giant Country. From escaping deadly encounters to reaching the Dream World with the giant, she finds a friend in him and names him- BFG, the Big Friendly Giant. When the man-eating giants barge into BFG’s house looking for Sophie, a chase game begins, forming the crux of the story.
