The Pakistani film makers have been successful in making the animated films like 3 Bahadur and Allahyar And The Legend of Markhor which are up to the mark and according to the international standards. These films have clinched appreciation at home and in abroad breaking numerous records at the box office as well.
The rapidly progressing animated movie department is flourishing with every passing day and the latest presentation ‘The Donkey King’ by Talisman Studios is all set to join the club. The movie revolves around the life of a donkey named Mangu Mangu Jan Mangu who has got bigger dreams to rule the world and being famous but soon the reality is struck on his head by his father, who’s concerns about their own kind makes him rethink about his perspective of life. The film has got a deeper message hidden into the plot and the brains behind ‘The Donkey King’ have tried to spread the message by using the life of a donkey as a metaphor. The Donkey Monkey is an excellent attempt to deliver a message to the children and the movie also promises a exciting learning experience for the adults. The teaser tells us that the visuals and the sound quality of the movie is according to the international benchmark. We simply can not wait to watch the life story of Mangu Mangu Jan Mangu and we are yet to see how the film distinguishes itself from the animated movies made in the past.
The makers of this movie aren’t any other than the think tank behind the famous commander Safeguard. The director of the latest animated presentation Aziz Jindani states that he’s on a mission to change the animated film culture in Pakistan and according to him there’s a lot of potential in this genre of film making. Aziz aims to redefine the dynamics of animated movie making and want to take this genre to new heights in Pakistan.
According to Aziz Jindani:
“The Donkey King is an attempt to redefine the animation film genre in Pakistan. It will transcend the category by appealing to children and the child within every adult. The strongest point of The Donkey King is its unique, locally relevant story line, tongue and cheek dialogues and characters that are built to last. The content speaks to the kids but consistently winks at the adult, which will make it a worthwhile watch for all age groups.”
He stated further that “The strongest point of The Donkey King is its unique, locally relevant story line, tongue and cheek dialogues and characters that are built to last. The content speaks to the kids but consistently winks at the adult, which will make it a worthwhile watch for all age groups.”
If the claims made by the makers are to be believed then we feel safe to say that this movie wouldn’t be any lesser than the ones that are made in Hollywood and we could expect the same kind of quality content from the upcoming release.
The Donkey King is all set to hit the screens on 13th October 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited to witness what this latest animated film has to offer.
