Story: Two turkeys travel back in time to get 'turkeys' off the Thanksgiving menu. Do they succeed?

Review: Two 'space' turkeys (as they are from the future), Reggie (Owen Wilson) and Jake (Woody Harrelson) travel back in time to change the course of history and get turkeys off the Thanksgiving menu. They go back to 1621 (First Thanksgiving), so that they could fight the hunters (humans) who are about to feast on the birds and start the tradition. The two time-travel in their talking spaceship called Steve. As they enter the past to save their species, Reggie falls for Jenny (Amy Poehler), daughter of the head of the flock. Love happens and everything falls into place.

The intention was to make 'non-vegetarians' think twice before salivating over a juicy turkey again as the film is about the birds fearing extinction, owing to our Thanksgiving tradition. However, it fails to serve its purpose.

Barring the 'Go vegetarian' message, like Planes (2013), this film too is a feel-good, run-of-the-mill low-budget venture which should have ideally headed for a direct-to-DVD or TV series release as it's strictly made for kids under the age of 10. So, if you decide to accompany the children for this one, do expect the experience to be yawn-worthy. An over-simplistic execution and a highly predictable plot further disappoint you.

The film is supposed to be a comedy but only a few scenes manage to make you smile, like the ones involving baby turkeys. The rest look like an episode of an outdated cartoon series. Even the 3D doesn't make the film look recent. Those typical cutesy buddy scenes fail to touch your heart. You don't feel for the characters either.

Free Birds is quite forgettable and generic for your liking. If your kid still insists, let him or her watch it. Meanwhile, you can dream of a scrumptious meal, while taking a short nap in the theatre.

It's totally a "Nawaz"style movie. Nawazuddin remains phenomenal throughout and once again stuns us with his remarkable performance.He does total justice to the plot and his character.Co-stars could have been better.But all in all freaky ali is a blend of desi emotions and hence deserves a watch.
