"Anyone can cook" was a best seller by the great Chef Gustav. His fan, Remy, a genius cook of humble origin- a rat- helps revive the magic of Gustav's restaurant after his death.
The critic who pans the restaurant and causes the untimely death of Gustav looks so like Sherlock Holmes. An awkward garbage boy , an arrogant & money minded chef who takes over from Gustav, an ensemble of chefs similar to Cheeni Kum in recent times and the rat's family led by a father ( who reminded me of the old man in Everybody loves Raymond) and an adorable brother complete the cast.
That a simple well made dish reminiscent of mom's cooking wins over the critic is really sweet.
The voice over casting is fantastic. The animation is of course lively and exciting.The fairy tale ending was expected, given that it is from Walt Disney and more for kids.
Lovable and sweet, this movie is not just another children's movie but is bound to leave a feeling of bonhomie.
