The Good, the Bad and the Voices Inside your Head:

From the studio that made films about talking toys, talking cars, a cooking rat, the industry of monsters, the life of a banned superhero family, and the adventures of an old man - comes another animated masterpiece, that will bring you into the abstract world of the mind of an 11-year-old girl, and her five emotions - Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear - that reside inside of her head.

As odd as the film may sound, "Inside Out" is a true gem with an original and creative concept that will show you how our minds work, and how our emotions actually affect our growth and behaviour. The film is not only aimed towards children, but also adults who will also equally find the film highly memorable, touching and full of fun!

Parents who watch this film will be able to understand the true meaning of this film as it is as if watching how your children grow up and the various emotions that come into play. They would also especially be able to relate to Joy - the main character (or should I say emotion) that has been controlling 11-year-old Riley and watching over her as she plays sort of a surrogate parent role, hoping for the best for Riley so that she wouldn't get hurt.

Children however, may enjoy the visual aspects of it more but may not think too much of the film and may not be able to grasp the underlying meaning behind it. To them, the film may just seem like another fun, adventurous movie surrounding the colourful muppet-like characters.

As imaginative as the film may be, some made-up facts, information or explanations in the film are passable as they seem to fit into the concept or situation even though you know that they are entirely untrue. But then again, nobody really knows how our minds work, but the way directors Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen made sense out of everything in "Inside Out", prove that the two men are true geniuses, and that you can expect no less as they are also the ones behind the award-winning Pixar films like "Up" and "WALL-E".

Most of the film takes part in Riley's mind and focuses a lot on the emotions themselves. Each of the voice cast did a great job for their respective roles. Amy Poehler as Joy in her peppiest role ever, Phyllis Smith as the insecure yet adorable Sadness, Lewis Black and his uncontrollable temper as Anger, Mindy Kaling who keeps giving sarcastic remarks in her role as Disgust, and Bill Hader the cowardly jittery nerve-like Fear which can't seem to stay still. Each of the characters serves their purpose and is fun to watch!

Overall, the film is an appropriately fun movie for the whole household - be it adults or children - and it is definitely a must-watch as it contains a meaningful and brave message that is relatable and understandable for everyone.

Trivia

• The directors initially wanted to include Pride as a character but decide to take him out and give his attributes to Joy instead.
