plot

Audiences everywhere are in for a Smurfy good time as the Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Sony Pictures Animation's hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours...more

Verdict

“Even the adorable characters, funny dialogues and Hank Azaria's brilliant acting don’t help The Smurfs in engaging the audiences. A paisa-vasool watch for kids but avoid watching it in 3D.”

Once in a blue moon kabhi kabhi a line made famous by the yesteryears villain Ranjeet in Vishwanath is at play here. Type once in a blue moon in You tube if you dont know this iconic line.
Smurfs are little blue beings who look more like cute little tiny sardars with their white cap. Thanks to an evil wizard Gargamel they enter New York City and land up at the house of a couple expectting a baby. The evil wizard follows them. What happen next and how do they get back to their village is what the film is about.

Aimed purely at kids in the age bracket of 2 to 4 years this film is laborious to sit through even though it is just 86 mins long. None of the characters have any charm. Even though the Smurfs looked cute there was no effort put into the writing to involve the audience in their predicament to get back to their village. An amateurish direction adds to the misery of sitting through it. The stay in New York looked more like a fun vacation than a conflict for The Smurfs. Hank Azaria as the comic villain Gargamel is the only saving grace in this film. The track featuring Neil Patrick Harris & Jayma Mays is added so that the parents coming with the kids do not go back thinking there was nothing in store for them but it fails to engage.

Final few words: Smurfs is not worth a visit even for its target audience. Quality time with the kids can be spent doing something else.

Rating: **

Ticket meter: Worth a dvd watch only of if the kids insist.
