Paddington welcomes the screen with a video of a voyage to Darkest Peru, in which a British traveler happens to be in an ancestor of such a smart, chatting bears with a fondness for fruit preserves. The British tourist assured to accommodate them in London.

Moving about in the present day, Paddington is heaping oranges for his Aunt Lucy and Uncle Pastuzo in making marmalade when an earthquake devastates their home. Now that he’s at the right age, Paddington’s aunt sent him to London.

Hauling loads of his favorite foods to last him all the way through his trip, off he goes in his red hat. But when he gets there, people reject his friendly effort to bond with them.

Tossed at Paddington Station, only Mrs. Brown and the Brown family showed consideration to this down-and-out, tousled creature.

Although the other members of the family have doubts at first (Mr. Brown, daughter Judy and son Jonathan), Mrs. Brown was amazed with him. After some embarrassment and catastrophic, humorous adventures adapting to his new London life, Paddington tuned in and established himself. The Peruvian bear maintains a brave outlook even though he is homesick.

Paddington also faced some serious threats, which might be terrifying for kids. Like when Nicole Kidman, a taxidermist hunts him.paddington

Inducing facial gestures helps generate an unexpected touching connection. The home of Mr. Brown that opens to reveal the whole family doing their business in their rooms and a wall painting of a tree in the staircase that varies to manifest the atmosphere of the scenes; it’s an epic wide screen treat.

It remains authentic to the traditional character in a hi-tech escapade. Paddington also came across a Cuban band whose music is fiercely distinctive and ideal for the mood of the place.

Along with the wit, toilet humor and the offshore quest, the film also exert as a rather cunning parable about migration and devastation. The movie allows a bear miles gone from Lima, Peru to feel like he’s home. It seriously implies that he lost his dad and was neglected by his mom. Paul King, the writer and the director, came up with this subject in a style that is not too oppressive for adults, yet it has a recall to the kids in cinemas.

Those who are familiar with the book (written by Michael Bond) will love it. This is a wonderful movie for children and adults.  Thumbs up to the filmmakers who handle to plot the digital bear next to his co-stars and manage to connect historic pride to a high-concept narrative.
