My overall take: Not one of my favorite Doraemon movies, story takes major leaps in logic to work.

In this movie, Nobita's friend Shizuka gets literally lost inside an Arabian Nights story, so the others have to rescue her. I've never particularly liked this one. Reducing Shizuka's main narrative importance to "damsel in distress" is already not a winning premise, though this is at least not used as an excuse to sacrifice her characterization. Indeed, she responds to her situation with far more resourcefulness and composure than any 10-year-old should be expected to. (And her situation gets pretty dark, including her being marketed as a slave!)
