In his secret life, Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) dreams big...really, really big. There's no challenge beyond his grasp, be it climbing a massive glacier or rescuing a senior citizen from an exploding building. When he's not daydreaming, the not-so-secret life of Walter Mitty is the opposite of his heroic alter-ego's; he's just...more


“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is visually impressive but it is more style less substance. Ben Stiller's ambitious enterprise is not a resounding success but an entertaining watch. ”

Walter Mitty(Ben Stiller) lives a boring existence and loves to day dream or gets ‘zoned out’ as some like to call it. As someone who does that too often, I could relate to the character a lot. He likes a co worker, who is recently separated from her husband but takes the route of an online dating site to connect with her because; he is too shy to ask her out in person. His life sucks so bad, that he has nothing to write in the ‘been there done that’ section of the dating website. A missing picture, that is supposed to go as the last cover of LIFE (the place he works)before it shuts down pushes him on an adventure so extraordinary, that it leaves you wondering if it is for real or is it one of his day dreaming episode.

The film has the heart of an Indie but the budget of blockbuster. Visually enthralling and beautifully shot by Stuart Dryburgh ( Amelia) every day dreamer and traveler will love the film instantly. Ben Stiller dons the director’s hat after a gap of 5 years and gives a feel good comedy with a loud and clear message that live is supposed to be lived to its fullest. Writer Steve Conrad (the pursuit of happiness) adapts James Thurber’s short story of the same name beautifully to today’s times. I guess mungerilal ke haseen sapne( you remember?) came out of the same short story.

People who live mundane lives while thinking about the life they would love to live will find inspiration to stop dreaming and start living the life they want to.

Word of mouth - A wonderful feel good film which is a visual feast for travelers and comforting for day dreamers
