    No Hurry….

    Children’s in India have been lusting for Out and out Kids flick from ages. Earlier there use to be few films with kids in theme or kids centric, but it use to be once or twice in a decade. Recently Hanuman got back kids to cinema hall and started a trend of children films. But except for one or two average flicks, they still lust for a good Out and out Film based for kids. Many of them were made with low budget or were low in production values, etc. “Hari Putter” arrives with high Production Values, Tie Ups, Publicity and a decent Star cast. But does it quench the long waited thirst of out and out children film? Let’s find out.

    “Hari Putter” is story of Hari [Zain Khan] who has moved to London with his family consisting for Father [Scientist on Mission], Mother [Sarika] and Brother Rocky. They are visited by Their Uncle [Jackie Shroff], Aunt [Lillette Dubey] and their Gang of Kids with Tuk Tuk[ Swini Khare] the Smallest of all. Hari and his brother Rocky indulge in a fight which upsets everyone and Hari is punished by sleeping alone in study room. Next day the entire family leaves for a vacation and in the hurry forgets Hari and Tuk Tuk. Hari and Tuk Tuk starts’ enjoying the freedom but their smiles vanishes as they find out that two Robbers [Saurabh Shukla & Vijay Raaz] are planning to break in their house to steal a Micro Chip which belongs to Hari’s Father. Hari plans a welcome attack and thus starts the terror adventure.

    Sounds Similar? Yes it is, as is highly inspired or copied from “Home Alone”. The writer despite having a huge reference of a cult film manages to do so many errors. Story, Screenplay both are very very weak. Music is ok and does not deserve to be mentioned more than that

    Direction is as good as story and screenplay. Sadly all the good locations [U.K],along with good stars go in vain due to this weak technical team. All the comedy scenes or the climax scenes looked total forceful. Production values are good, including branding of cartoon character “Funtoon”.

    Zain Khan and Swini Khare does a good job in this weak film. But they deserve more as their original talent is not shown in this film. Sarika and Lillette looks good and have done a decent job. Jackie Shroff was fine. Saurabh Shukla and Vijay Raaz were nothing great.

    So Bol Meri ‘FILMI KHOPDI’ is Film mein kitna hai dum ?

    Koi Dum nahin hain, weak copy hai Hollywood blockbuster ki. Kids who have watched loads of bad children movie might digest this one also but not in big way. The quench for out and out children film still keeps continuing. If you are not a kid or are not going to watch the movie with a kid, then hurry…please go back home and enjoy the original movie on DVD or Star Movies.

    Ratings : 1/5
