This light-hearted musical features 22timeless  ABBA songs and it's fun to watch, laugh and dance to its tunes.

Elf enchants you with a perfect mix of humour, adventure and romance. It's hilarious. A family comedy, Elf can cheer you up in these tough times. The story focuses on Buddy (Will Farell), one of Santa's elves, who is actually a human.

Oversized sized Buddy who doesn't belong the North Pole embarks on a journey to find his biological father when he gets to know that he is not an elf but a human.
"You sit on a throne of lies" and more such memorable one-liners from the flick are quotable. Buddy and Jovie make for the cutest couple as they add a dash of romance to the comedy.

The movie captures the true spirit of Christmas and inspires. It also gives a message through Walter who was extra busy with his professional life until Buddy gave him a wake-up call. Your work can't be your priority in life. You must take a break from taking life too seriously.

Treat every day during the lockdown as Christmas and celebrate every moment with your family. Watch Elf for Ferrel. He is the soul of this disarmingly funny film. His performance charms it's way straight into your heart!
