How to train your dragon review : a training for me

HTTYD was a brief training session for the Dragons, Hiccup and his friends, his father and other Vikings and of course Me. Storyline is simple. A young Viking, Hiccup, wants to join his town's fight against the dragons that continually raid their town. However, his father and viking leader Stoik, will not allow his small, inventive son to do so. Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can't kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged this species. With the efforts from Hiccup and Toothless, the vikings and dragons destroy the evil and a friendship between them blooms. This movie reminded me of another classic animation movie "Monster Inc.". The concept is very similar in both the movies. There it was monster vs human child and here it is Dragon and Human. There one monster and a child change the whole monster-child relation which is similar to the change happened in Dragon-Viking relation.

Animation was classic and with 3-D, it actually added a new dimension. The emotions conveyed in a very sweet manner. First time I think the Dragon was given a very sweet face in any movie, it can even smile with the short tooth. Well now if I start talking about the graphics and animation quality etc, then it will sound like "Chota Muh Badi Baat". Only I can say is a must must watch movie (4.5/5) for everyone (specially children).
