Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment’s Godzilla Vs. Kong (dubbed from the Hollywood film of the same name; UA) is, as the title suggests, the story of a face-off between the Godzilla and Kong. It is a monster film which is a sequel to Godzilla: King Of The Monsters and Kong: Skull Island. It is the 36th film in the Godzilla franchise, the 12th film in the King Kong franchise, and the fourth film in Legendary’s MonsterVerse.

The two Titans collide in this drama but the outcome is important as the future of the world depends on it. Kong and his protectors undertake a dangerous journey to find his true home. Jia (Kaylee Hottle), who is the adopted daughter of Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall), is the only one who can talk in sign language with Kong. She is, of course, part of the expedition. But Kong’s supporters realise that they have come in the path of an enraged Godzilla which is wreaking havoc across the globe. What has instigated the Godzilla? And who will win the battle?

Terry Rossio, Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields have penned an interesting story which keeps the audience interest alive from the start till the end. The screenplay, written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, is fast-paced and pretty engaging. At many points, the screenplay is so exciting that the audiences are at the edge of their seats. The track of Jia and Kong gives an emotional angle to the monster drama.

Alexander Skarsgård is quite good as Nathan Lind. Rebecca Hall is pretty impressive in the role of Ilene Andrews. Millie Bobby Brown leaves a mark as Madison Russell. Demián Bichir is effective as Walter Simmons. Brian Tyree Henry is entertaining as Bernie. Eiza Gonsález makes her presence felt as Maya Simmons. Julian Dennison is cute as Josh. Kyle Chandler has his moments as Mark Russell. Kaylee Hottle shines as little Jia. Shun Oguri (as Ren Serizawa) and the rest of the actors lend able support.

Adam Wingard’s direction is impactful. His narration keeps the viewers’ eyes glued to the screen. Junkie XL’s music complements the drama well. Ben Seresin’s cinematography is of a high order. Tom Hammock and Owen Paterson’s production designing is of a good standard. Art direction (Bill Booth, Mitch Cass and Andres Cubillan) is nice. Josh Schaeffer’s editing is sharp. Visual effects and computer graphics are fantastic. Dubbing is pretty good.

On the whole, Godzilla Vs. Kong is a nice entertainer for the entire family. However, given the growing number of coronavirus cases in India in the second wave and, therefore, the reluctance of many to venture out to the movies, the film will not be able to realise its full potential at the box-office. Further, different state governments have put different restrictions on cinemas (for example, 50% occupancy only, night curfews, cinema closure on Saturdays/Sundays, etc.), which will further restrict its business at the turnstiles.

Released on 24-3-’21 at Maratha Mandir (daily 2 shows) and other cinemas of Bombay by Warner Bros. Pictures (India) Pvt. Ltd. Publicity: good. Opening: impressive, considering the adverse climate. …….Also released all over. Opening was good at many places. …….The original English version has also opened simultaneously.
