It basically defines the excellence in music tracks, production design, costume design and choreography that is so rich and visually aesthetic to view that it upbeats the audience on the seat to a point where one can't defy that it is entertainment at its best. It is finely detailed when it comes to create the high pitched musical sequences where each and every beat, lyric and tempo serves the right amount of taste that has been missing in musical features. The plot does not only lifts up from eerie perspective but stays true to its nature throughout the course of it that has gripping screenplay, stellar performances, perfect editing and execution, amusing characters and stunning visuals. Rob Marshall is in his A game in here being aware of the opportunity and the potential that this script has, he draws out the best from each and every frame. A smart adaptation by Bill Condon; the screenplay writer, that offers enough space and range for the character and actors to factor in. Renee Zellweger and Richard Gere are brilliant in it but the real game changer is Catherine Zeta Jones as a supporting artist. Chicago is a rare art that touches the craft and hardwork at its peak and radiates the deep down emotion and communicates with the audience from the first frame and doesn't leave until the curtain drops.
It may be a tad bit risqué, but Chicago still has splendid visuals, solid performances, and cool song and dance numbers.
