In today's nuclear family,a child grows up all alone as his parents are busy with their lives. From a young age he is taught that he has to study, have a good career and survive in this competitive world in this rat race. All that is all right, but a child still needs that love and attention which he longs for, yet doesn't get. What about the people in the suburbs or the villages? Their life is a little different, but when they don't get the proper opportunities do they opt for crime? Well this and much more is revealed in a hilarious children's film called 'Kidnapper'(yes it is about kidnappers too!) which stars Samadarshi Dutta, Riddhima Ghosh, Paran Banerjee, Sourav Chatterjee, Apurbo Roy, Shantilal Mukherjee, Sumit Sammadar and others.
Samadarshi Dutta, Sourav Chatterjee and Apurbo Roy play three friends who stay together in a rented house and all of them are unemployed. All of them are from the suburbs and Bubka(Samadarshi) also has a girlfriend to whom he lies. Bubka is a struggling artist, Kanai is a struggling salesman and the 3rd friend is a struggling mechanic. However when their landlord asks them to really do something with their life, in fact even suggests kidnapping as a profession to make a few bucks, the friends really kidnap not one, but 3 children and one more guy who stays in a bustee also comes as an extra package! One of the kids also happens to be the nephew of Koel, Bubka’s girlfriend. The result! Total chaos as the children begin to enjoy their stay there and and refuse to go back to their house. Even the three friends get success in their professional lives as well . The rest of the film also includes a real life comic kidnapper, 'Top Up Bhai' who intends to kidnap the 3 children , but ends up being caught himself.
The film is a children’s film with quite a few laughs and yet ironical as well. It tells us how busy we have become and running after careers have made us forego our precious quality time with our children as a result of which they are neglected and feel deprived of our love, affections and a little quality time with them will help the cause instead of trying to get them occupied with other things or showering them with money and gifts. This is definitely the moral of the story and what the director has tried to project, but in a different manner. The entire cast has done well including Shantilal Mukherjee as the ‘comic’ kidnapper. There is even a song in the film,a parody which is made up of songs from over the decades which is quite nice. The rest of the songs are also quite pleasant.
