Beauty and The Beast (2017) : Movie Review

Beauty and The Beast

Beauty and The Beast is a movie based on the novel of the same name and is directed by Bill Condon. The initial release of the film was in London on 23rd February 2017 and was set to release in India on 17th march 2017. It is the most awaited film for the lovers of this novel and some of the people who love Emma Watson.


Now, practically this movie is based on the most famous novel Beauty and The Beast written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve. This story is mostly written in the 17th century and has been loved by everyone till now. Many other films based on the movie have also been released previously. Basically, most of the people might already know the story but for the rest of others, let’s have a little chat about its story.

It is about a girl and a cursed man who had turned into a Beast. The name of the girl is Bella and her role in the movie is played by Emma Watson. The girl lives a very simple and ordinary life in her village with her father but also is very keen to explore the world and have some big adventures. She reads a lot of books which was not considered good in that period of time. The girl Bella was captured by The Beast in his castle were some of the things were alive and can even talk as it also was a part of the curse.

The Beast and rest of the trapped members can only be set free when The Beast falls in love with a girl and that same girl also loves The Beast in a defined amount of time. I can keep on talking about that story and you probably will figure out the end without even reading it completely cause it is very simple. But it’s the simplicity of this story that made people fall in love with the novel first.


Many people around here would be knowing this story but seeing this all stuff virtually is absolutely amazing. The movie is directed very nicely and all of the scenes that convey a message are also shot amazingly. It really isn’t about the story but it is about the execution of that beautiful story. Definitely, you wouldn’t​ get bored cause they did find a way to keep us entertain and that was none other than by using songs.

Seriously, this movie has lots and lots of songs. They just described a character and a small story in those songs. Smallest things like having a dinner or even a good night were used in the songs. Songs of the movie no doubt were very good but it came very frequently and after some time we find it annoying. The video that is visual for all these songs is very good and that is the only one reason that makes you keep seated in that very exact chair of yours.

The Beast definitely was very amazing and it looked very real. They have done an excellent job on the graphics and videography too. All of the visual effects were looking just simply good. The scenes where we see Emma and The Beast together can be considered as the best scenes in the movie. Emma Watson playing Bella also did a fantastic job on her side of the role. She looked very pretty and absolutely beautiful.

Am afraid that many people will not be liking this movie especially those who don’t believe in fairy tales and can’t get out of their real world. Watching this movie requires a good set of imagination skills and don’t use your brain much just go with your Heart. The movie just has a very nice flow and goes very smoothly without letting us get bored at all. And yeah it also is a love story so people getting sick of love stories should definitely not watch this movie but people who like love stories a lot should surely watch this once.

A little about The Novel

Reprint version of novel

As I said earlier this movie is based on the most famous novel named Beauty and The Beast written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740. This novel is a fairy tale and so is the movie. This movie definitely reminds us of our childhood were we used to imagine stuff that they have shown us in the movie. The novel was first published in La Jeune Américaine et les contes marins (The Young American and Marine Tales). Many versions of this story and also lengthy versions of this story were reprinted later on at different places. Definitely, this is all just a fantasy.


Many people might be thinking of not watching this movie. But let me tell you that if you’re ready to go out and have some fun and watch a movie with your friends then this surely is the one. This movie is a very fine piece of art and so is the novel that we talked about earlier. I would like to shed a light on the collection of songs of the movie as there are a lot of songs but visually those songs seem to entertain very well. But those same songs can get frustrating sometimes because of their frequency. Rest assured Emma Watson did a splendid job and The Beast played by Dan Stevens was also very good. Also, the flow of the story is quite relaxing and completely understandable. Visual graphics are also very good but watching this movie in 3D wouldn’t make much of a difference. So, this movie is totally entertaining and also a family trip kind of movie. Kids will easily understand this movie and surely will enjoy too much. Happy Weekend.
