‘Abominable’: An adorable journey towards home

The first major co-production between DreamWorks and China’s Pearl Studio, Abominable, is a charming and adorable tale that holds your interest during its 90-minute runtime. An exceptionally amiable animated tale, written and directed by Jill Culton, Abominable is one kind and gentle hug to mankind.

The film begins with a prison break scene, as where we can see a large creature escaping a lab before reaching a Chinese metropolis. It is not until the creature sees a billboard advertising trips to Mount Everest that we notice that we’re following a yeti.

The Yeti escapes is owned by an eccentric billionaire, Burnish (Eddie Izzard), an adventurer and entrepreneur who wants the big furry beast  back to prove that he did see such a creature years before while climbing Mt. Everest. The creature ends up on the rooftop of a young girl named Yi’s apartment building.

Yi (Chloe Bennet) may look like any normal Chinese teen on the streets of Shanghai, but she’s a teen on a mission. The other kids are away for their summer break and having fun, but Yi spends her days working to earn. She does babysitting, takes dogs for walks, dumps trash, and takes any odd job possible. And with the hard earned money, Yi hopes to take a trip across China, which was her late father’s dream. When Yi finds a young Yeti on her apartment building roof, she gets skeptical of the creature,  but is won over by the adorable nature of this creature and decides to call it Everest.

The cute furry creature gently manages to reach our hearts with its funny behaviour. Everest can do magical tricks, particularly with nature, where he grows giant blueberries or conjure a speedboat that can sail through miles of flower fields. The beautiful animation makes these acts look exhilarating to behold.

When Burnish’s helicopters hover over the city and his right-hand woman Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) keeps careful watch on every street corner for tghe yeti, Yi suddenly realises that it’s important that she puts aside her own dreams to help this defenseless creature and help get him back home, to Mt. Everest. Because even though he’s huge, this Yeti is just a kid. He’s alone. He’s lost. He’s separated from his family. And Yi knows well, that this human world is a rotten place for any kid to be.

Yi, joined by Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and his basketball-loving little cousin, Peng (Albert Tsai) set off to somehow find a way to—and they do everything they can to help Everest reach his family.

Along the way, Yi comes to realise that the path they’re taking across China is almost exactly the same path that her dad wanted to travel. The adventure helps Yi to not only connect with the memory of her father, but also to find a sense of healing through sharing her own pain and loss with her friends.

The film ultimately manages to subtly highlights the importance of friends and family when it comes to finding a way through deep personal loss and grief. The character sketch is done so precisely that one can easily find a Nai Nai (Tsai Chin), a caring mom, typical social media- obsessed teenagers in real life.

Lastly, there is more to this delightful tale than what meets the eye. Abominable offers an animated exploration of how great loss can tempt a person to bury her feelings. After the death of her dad, Yi has walled herself off from her loved ones. But in her determination to get her new furry pal back to his family, she finds a way back to the important people and things of her life, too.

Eric, however, never goes overboard with his shenanigans, making his character very endearing.

Cosmos-Maya SVP development and current projects as well as the creator of the show, Dheeraj Berry noted, “A lot of the animation in Smarty-Pants Eric is about opening the boundaries of your imagination. The biggest creative challenge we faced was to design the characters such that they look endearing and relatable, and yet cut across geographies. The situations are universal, but the moments are personal.”

The 6th edition of the Taiwan Excellence Gaming Cup’s (TEGC) grand finale received a stupendous response from participants and audience alike. Professional gamers from across the country converged in Mumbai to battle it out at India’s most prestigious eSports championship on 27 to 28 September at Infiniti Mall, Malad (W), Mumbai. Organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade (MOEA), TEGC is India’s longest running eSports championship.

In fact, the overwhelming response it has received this year is testimony to how its popularity is growing each year. The first edition had seen only 565 participants, while in 2019, the number has grown to 6,136 participants. 

This year’s edition featured a collection of games including PUBG Mobile, DOTA 2 and CS:GO. The elimination rounds for TEGC 2019 kicked off in June for the pan-India championship with an impressive line-up of cities including Hyderabad, Bangalore, Silchar, Kolkata, Pune and Mumbai. 

This year, the participants and audience got an opportunity to witness and get a first-hand experience of some of the best technology from leading Taiwanese brands including AIFA, AORUS, AVerMedia, Avision, D-Link, InWin, MSI, Predator, ROG, Thermaltake, Tokuyo, Transcend, U.CR+, Victor, XPG, Zowie, Zyxel, etc.

Additionally, ever since its inception, TEGC has been striving to work towards the overall development of gamers and the gaming industry in India and has also been providing ample encouragement to the vibrant community of gamers. Each year, TEGC introduces newer elements to its format to aid in the development of the gaming industry. 

This year’s edition too included a unique initiative where India’s most loved sport lent exciting support to India’s fastest growing sport. To grace the grand finale, TEGC invited some of India’s biggest cricketing legends including Zaheer Khan, Kiran More and Abey Kuruvilla who are currently coaching the Mumbai Indians IPL team. These stalwarts were present at the event to interact with the young eSports athletes, mentor them in general and instill the values of true team spirit and sportsmanship in them. With the aim of offering gamers overall grooming towards pursuing eSports as a career, TEGC requested the stalwarts to interact with the young athletes who could learn from the knowledge and experience of the senior players.

We foresee that eSports will not only represent the spirit of Indian youth today but will also serve as a symbol of India and Taiwan moving forward together in the pursuit of innovation and competition. We always want to come back with a much bigger edition of TEGC each year and we wish to see same kind of enthusiasm from these passionate gamers and the audience.”
