M. S. Keerthana and Sonia Chelirian, “Colonialization in Bird’s Eyes”, OPUS: International Journal of Innovative Technology and Exploring Engineering (IJITEE), vol. 8, no. 7, 2019.[Abstract]

In the contemporary global scenario, the aspects and attributes of post-colonial theory has encapsulated almost all the major echelons of our society ranging from popular media to international economics. The dialectics of the ‘oppressor’ and the ‘oppressed’ has become one the most important topic of deliberation since the nineteenth century so that, it has been both exemplified and trivialized in popular culture to great extends. This paper is an attempt to analyse the 2016 animation movie The Angry Birds from a postcolonial perspective. Although the movie is a comedy, primarily intended for the child audience, it has strong implicit undercurrents of colonization and independence wars. The clan of birds symbolizes the native people who are the ‘colonized’ and the green-coloured pigs represents the ‘colonizers’. This paper also examines the movie’s close parallelism with the history and course of British colonization in India.
