Saving Mr. Banks Movie Reviews

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s Verdict (CNN IBN)

Like all Disney films, this one too is doused in a vat of good-natured sweetness and sprinkled with a helping of schmaltz. Yet the film is eminently watchable whenever Thompson is on screen. As the forever snapping Mrs Travers – she refuses to be addressed with even the slightest hint of familiarity, no Pam or Pamela will do, thank you very much – she nevertheless brings wit and charm to a film that could’ve done with a little less sugar to make the medicine go down. I’m going with three out of five for ‘Saving Mr Banks’. It’s not one for the ages, but you’ll come out feeling all warm and fuzzy.

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Gavin Rasquinha Site:Times of India (TOI)

Inspired by true events, the film is a behind-the-scenes backstory about how Walt Disney (Hanks) had author P.L. Travers’ book, Mary Poppins, made into a successful feature film. When Disney’s charm doesn’t work on her, he realizes that he can only understand and deconstruct Travers’ difficult ways by tapping into his own childhood. In doing so, he uses empathy and not anger to try and melt Travers’ frosty ways and to look at the movie as a kind of catharsis. Heartwarming without being soppy, this film makes for a thoroughly enjoyable watch.

If Disney’s ways did lead to a film that generations upon generations of children remain besotted by, then he may well have been in the right. This film, by admiring that instead of questioning it, loses its sharpness: but candyfloss could do without an edge. Saving Mr Banks is too long, too sentimental, too hacky in bits, but, ultimately, it’s truly chipper in a way most films have forgotten how to be. It might not be supercalafragilisticexpialidocious, sure, but at least it points us in that direction.

The clash of cultures and ideologies between the two countries divided by the Pacific is brilliantly showcased in the film. Emma Thompson gives a performance that has been unfortunately ignored by the awards community. Her portryal of Travers makes the film soar! For fans of Mary Poppins or Disney, Saving Mr Banks offers a wonderful insight into the drama that ensued behind the scenes in making one of the best loved child classics of all time.
