Looks like Pixar was keeping the best for their 10th release, Up. A perfect mash-up of an adult love story set against the backdrop of a wild adventure, Up starts on a high note.


Carl (Asner) sets off on a magical journey to South America with helium balloons tied to his shanty house. Having no idea who's going to knock on his door in mid-air, Carl is soon forced to take 'wilderness explorer' Russell (Nagai) under his wing.

Grieving the loss of his wife, Carl takes Russell on a journey that has them encountering strange birds, beasts and getting to know each other better.

Then there is legendary explorer Charles Muntz (Plummer) who's in exile after facing public humiliation on his discovery of a large wild bird.

Sugary and full of cute moments, the film will have you in splits with Russell's funny antics and also work on your tear ducts as you see Carl's unending love for his wife.

What's hot: Coming from a studio whose resume has The Incredibles, Ratatouille and WALL-E on it, Up is a shining star that dazzles brightly.

It's expected that Pixar will deliver in animation giving visual treats that will have us craving for more. But in Up, there's more than just superior animation, the film has a strong storyline and characters that don't just create interesting expressions but work under our skin.

Watching the flashback scenes of Carl and his then girlfriend Ellie melt your heart, and prepare you for a climax that's bound to get you all teary eyed.

A perfect cocktail of an adventure-love story, Up never loses its tempo. Constantly offering you ingenious and colourful moments, the film soars on all fronts like the helium-filled balloons. Ed Asner and Jordan Nagai are outstanding in their respective characters.u00a0

What's not: The 3-D version doesn't really do much, save for a few scenes. So if wearing thick frames annoy you, go for the regular version which delivers equally.u00a0

What to do: It's feel-good, uplifting, an experience that will cheer you up no matter what mood you are in. A must watch, thisu00a0 easily is the best animation film of the year!
