The Marvel universe is steadily expanding. Doctor Strange is yet another venture from their bag of trinkets. Does it shine well enough to stand out as a remarkable piece of work? Or does it prove to be a classic example of the saying ‘All that glitters is not gold”. Read more to find out.


Doctor Strange is a story of how Doctor Stephen Strange learns magical arts on his journey to heal his hands. How he uses it to safeguard our earth from threats is what forms the rest of the story.


The plot is relatively new for the superhero genre for the Sci-fi genre. Although for those who are very familiar with the world of complex thrillers and trippy films the story might seem a tad predictable. The screenplay features humor that is synonymous with the Marvel Universe. Also with every spice of every Marvel movie thrown in, at times the movie has nothing new to offer with the turn of scenes. The visuals are nothing short of spectacular. Tantalizing your visual senses, many sequences make you wish we can play those again in our mind in slow motion, just to see how every visual detail falls into place in a poetic way. The background score supports the movie well enough with worthy compositions. The editing is slick, crisp and shines through the action stunts where the world turns Topsy turvy. The cuts executed when multiple realms collide and merge is what makes the viewing experience a memorable one. The art direction is neat and looks pretty much spot on.


Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton and the other casts were apt. Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be the most suitable choice for the lead role as he essays his role with ease.


Overall Doctor Strange is a cooked mix of various templates but is presented in a spectacular manner. Although depth to characters, an establishment of a resolute purpose and a strong plot line would have made this better, Doctor Strange is still a good watch.


Verdict: A visual treat which is a good watch.
