Based on the popular comic books, ‘The Adventures of Tintin’ is about the young journalist Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy and his close friends’ Captain Haddock and the bumbling detectives who are almost identical – Thompson and Thompson. They are on a quest to find the answers to The Secret of the Unicorn, the ship that belonged to the famous pirate Red Rackham.
Premiering on Sunday, 22 May at 10 am is ‘Open Season’, an animated movie that follows the funny and entertaining adventures of Boog, a happily domesticated grizzly bear, who has his perfect world turned upside down after he meets Elliot, a scrawny, fast-talking one-horned wild mule deer. They both end up stranded together in the woods during hunting season and it’s up to the duo to rally all the other forest animals and turn the tables on the hunters.
Premiering on Sunday, 29 May at 10 am is ‘Ghatotkach’, the fierce, strong and colourful son of Bheem and Hidimba, from the Mahabharat. The film traces the journey of Ghatotkach from his birth to his growing up into a courageous warrior, who plays a brave but tragic part in the great Mahabharat war. The story of Ghatotkach is brought to life in this entertaining animated version and incorporates all the classic elements of fantasy, adventure and humour.
