Bokya Satbande - Notepad

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Bokya means only well and is manipulative to that end. He's a social messenger for our children and the child in us. The film though is a bit too sweet to be true.

Plot Summary

Bokya (Aryan Narvekar) is a 7-year old boy who looks at the world with a lot of empathy. With this empathy he tries to do what best he can using the fairest means possible.

What Worked

  • The top angle shots of the playground.
  • The background music

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • The set-up of Belvande ajoba's (Dilip Prabhawalkar's) house. The sad state in which it was looked too done up.
  • Okay, why are 20-30 kids travelling out of town without adult company?


This section lists things that I think are not important to the overall impact of the movie. In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless. Hopefully, they will tickle you too.

  • Dilip Prabhawalkar's wig was horrendous and distracting.
