Wonderland, with a twist

Alice in Wonderland’ airs on November 28 at 8.05 pm on Zee Studio. Alice (played by Mia Wasikowska) is all of 19 when she gets engaged to an English nobleman. Alice finds her fiancé rather stupid — and so, she runs away from her engagement party, wondering whether she wants to go through the marriage at all.

That’s when she falls down a hole in the garden and lands up in Wonderland — only it’s called Underland and is inhabited by strange people and talking animals. Alice soon finds out the reason for her presence in Underland — to overthrow the horrid Jabberwocky and re-establish the queen on her throne.  The movie stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover and Matt Lucas.

Starring Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom, Dyan Cannon, Robert Webber and Tony Beckley, ‘Revenge of the Pink Panther’ airs on MGM at 5.30 pm on November 28.
