The biggest dilemma I face right now is how to marvel about Spider-man No Way Home without giving out any spoilers. I am going to try because “with great power (to write a review) comes great responsibility!”
What happens when your friendly neighborhood Spider-man is labeled as a ‘menace’ and a danger to the world? What happens when you suddenly become the ‘most famous person in the world?’ Well, it is a gift and a curse! Spider-man No Way Home starts with a broadcast that reveals Peter Parker to be your friendly neighborhood spider-man! As expected, the world was divided and everyone he loved was endangered due to the unexpected revelation. To undo that, Peter seeks help from Stephen (Doctor Strange) and in the process, ends up complicating the matter all the more. The entire film is a result of a spell going wrong, opening up the multiverse, in the most unexpected ways. Whose fault was it? Well, doesn’t matter because what’s done is done.
While Doctor Strange tries to salvage the situation, and send home those who enter Earth from the multiverse, Peter makes sure there’s ‘No Way Home’. Why? Because he believes in second chances. What happens when a Sandman, a lizard man, Dr. Conner, Max, come together from the multiverse and are challenged by the magic of 3. Well, remember the song by Bob Dorough? ‘Three is a magic number?’ Well, it kinda makes a lot of sense once you watch Spider-man No Way Home.

The new Marvel film explores the potential of the multiverse in a rather uncomplicated way. So much happens simultaneously which is enough to leave you smiling, choking, and cheering at the same time. Moments when Spider-man battles it out with the multiverse villains are stupendous and so well done that it gives you the chills.
The dialogues obviously make you chuckle and for any Marvel fan; you know how the fan comments and theories are sometimes turned into dialogues that can be self-deprecating in a rather funny way! There is so much to go crazy about but I don’t know if I can do that without spilling. the beans!
Zendaya as MJ is the perfect support Peter needs with Ned adding the laughter punch here and there. The cinematic glory of the film remains unchanged. The experience in itself is fulfilling and overwhelming.
The use of background score and unexpected moments of a twist really keeps you on the edge.
Well, MJ reiterates in the movie, “If you expect disappointed, you will not be disappointed.” Don’t listen to her! Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-man will not disappoint you! Go and watch right away!
PS: The post-ending scene will really give you the hint for what to expect next!
