The story of this animated flick is based on the beautiful fairy tale of the strikingly beautiful Rapunzel who had long hair and lived in a tall tower where a witch had locked her up since she was a child.The movie has the Disney touch and is bound to get one and all enchanted.
The story begins with Rapunzel being kidnapped by the evil witch Mother Gothel after she discovers that the little girl is blessed with healing powers from a magical flower. The powers are said to grow in the golden hair of the beautiful little girl. Now since the powers of the magical flower had to be kept away from the world Rapunzel is locked in a tall tower. As Rapunzel grows up to be a beautiful teenager her hair grows to an amazing length of 70 feet.
Things change rapidly as one day a bandit Flynn Ryder climbs the tower and is then kept captive by Rapunzel. She only allows him to go on the deal which she strikes with him. Thus, wanting to run away from the prison like tower with the bandit who had climbed over into the tower she tells him to take her to the place which dazzled with floating lights that seemed to be so attractive to her whenever she was allowed to see it ever year on her birthday.
Thus begins the wonderful journey of the girl and her new found life and what adventures she goes through .The entire animated film has been given a very contemporary touch and the storyline has been slightly altered from its original pattern to suit modern thought process and logic.
Rapunzel voice over by Mandy Moore and Delaney Rose Stein as the baby Rapunzel are both quite competent and convincing in their performance. Donna Murphy as the evil witch is also excellent. Other characters are also very much believable and adorable. Indeed a great watch.
