Rio 2 finds Jewel, Blu and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city for a journey to the Amazon. They encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild.

Verdict

“Rio 2 is bigger than its predecessor but may not be better. This vibrantly animated sequel with wonderful song sequences is a must watch for the kids.”

Watching another sequel to an animated feature has all the charm of lining up for another sequel of the GolMaal franchise. What may have been charming once is just killing us with, well an overkill, of the same stunts, gags, and item numbers. 

So Jewel convinces Blu to go sheher se door, gagan ke us paar,for the  city life and hand held gadgets are just ruining their kids. Kahanai ghar ghar ki. It helps her cause that Linda and Tulio are somehwere in the Amazon where they have discovered a hidden tribe of the blue macaws. Oh wow, somehow Blu and Jewel are not alone any more; that must take some of the pressure off the kids of being the Spix Macaws ke aakhri chiragh.

Somewhere along they encounter Nigel the evil cockatoo (who is suffering some unwanted inter species love from a poison dart frog). In the Amazon, Jewel is reunited with her dad--and for the next half an hour I had to suffer gags inspired by Meet The Parents.

Item song, Evil loggers, Item song, soccer match off between the Spix macaws and some scarlet macaws, item song, Angry Birds, item song.

That is Rio 2 in a Brazil nutshell.

And while we are at it, could we start a petition that it is about time they allow the story to be the king? Enough with the 3D effects. A particular generation of kids think movies are not made any other way. And 101 minutes of 3D glasses is quite taxing on the little peepers.

Seriously.
