  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-8
When it comes to creating a land of fantasy, fun and mirth for children, there wasn't much that Walt Disney couldn't do. So, when his daughters implore him to fulfill their wish and make a movie out of their favourite book, how could he refuse? It's a promise that would take him two decades to keep.

A year before 'The Sound of Music', in 1964, Julie Andrews starred as the mysterious, magical nanny who floated in from the sky in Disney's beloved children's film 'Mary Poppins'. Now, nearly 50 years later, 'Saving Mr Banks' takes us behind the scenes to show us the drama that went into getting

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-7
Based on real life incidents, Saving Mr Banks is a behind the scenes look at how Walt Disney convinced author PL Travers let them make a big screen adaptation of her literary work Mary Poppins. Tom Hanks plays Disney while Emma Thompson is Travers. It isn't much of a story about Disney

  •  Indian Express -Shalini Langer Rating-8
This is a film by Disney on Walt Disney and on the making of one of Disney’s most-beloved films. So don’t be surprised at the spoonfuls of sugar Saving Mr Banks comes with. That Thompson still holds her own as the irascible P L Travers, the author of the Mary Poppins books

  •  Deccan Herald -Preetha Jennifer Sebastian Rating-8
For 20 years, Disney was repeatedly rejected by a stubborn Travers, who was heavily pursued for the movie rights to her story. But when desperate times called for desperate measures, a money-starved Travers considers co-writing the potential movie script.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-7
Great stories often have a story behind them that is actually as great. Saving Mr Banks accounts one such instance. The film tells the story behind the Disney classic, Mary Poppins , and how it made it to the screen.Yes, it does sound like a smart self- PR trick on Disney's part to hawk the idea
