The film brought life into Dahl's narrative

Steven Spielberg's The BFG is finally out and the exciting tale of giants is alive. With the help of Disney's CGI imagination, this live-action fantasy promises to take the young viewers into one of author Roald Dahl's most vivid imagination.

The BFG is about two out caste characters in their respective societies, an orphaned girl and a friendly old giant, who become each other's best friends amidst gruesome intentions and situations. Going by the trailer, Spielberg has kept the main essence of the story intact. The film stars Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall and Bill Hader.

Will the film be able to justify Dahl's narrative? Will Spielberg's magic be reinstated after the film? Will Indian audience connect with this imaginative masterpiece? Sameeksha from News18 is inside the theater to findout.
