Coco movie(2017): Why should you watch it?
Music has the power to rejuvenate your soul. It can heal you from the wounds that have been caused in your past. Music has this magical ability to drag you from the darkness onto the light and provide you with a way to go about your life. Music, to me, is a way to come out of all my uncertainties and a medium I always go to when I feel dejected as well as when I am content.
Now, you all will be wondering why I am elaborating so much on music. I will tell you about that in this article.
Well, this movie called Coco, an animated fantasy film streaming on Disney+Hotstar has left me with immeasurable happiness and admiration.
The movie narrates the story of a 12-year-old boy, Miguel who aspires to become a great musician like his idol Ernesto de la Cruz. Despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, Miguel desperately wanting to prove his talent lands up in the “Land of dead”. After meeting a charming trickster named Héctor, the two go on board to unravel the real story behind Miguel’s family history.

Coco: Reasons to watch it
You all might have a question, what makes this movie so wonderful that I am emphasizing you to watch. Here are some reasons-
So this is one of the few animated movies to have shown every human emotion that is happiness, sadness, fear, surprise, and anger. Believe me when I tell you, all these emotions are perfectly woven together. The emotional bond between a daughter and her father is splendidly displayed. “Family comes first”, is the message with which the film concludes and will leave you in tears.
All this time, I’ve told you about music. This film has some fantastic music which makes this movie, a must-watch. The song that won the academy award (“Remember me”) is one of the best songs I’ve ever heard, to be honest. This is the song that a father sings for his daughter. I am sorry to give you a spoiler but this song reminds the daughter of her father. I mean how sweet is that?
To make the audience laugh is very hard but this movie, with its light and unadulterated comedy, makes you laugh. Many unrealistic things here set you off on a humorous yet emotional journey.
4. For every age group: Coco can definitely be watched by any group of people irrespective of age. While the animation persuades children, the emotional story and music can have the adults get indulged. This is just a pure family drama. And make sure you watch it with your family because I assure you that this is an amazing film you wouldn’t regret watching.
At some point in time we all have wondered, how is it going to be after our death? So this movie has this out of box thought that nothing really changes after death, it is just that we live in another world but as skeletons, haha!
So, yes these are some of the reasons for you to watch this film. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section if you’ve already watched this work of genius. We will come back to you with many more amazing kinds of stuff very soon. Until then, stay safe and keep watching movies!
