Storyline

Parshuram (affectionately called as 'Parsha') is like any other child of his age - chirpy , mischievous and utterly likable . However when he complains of vision problems his grandfather Keshav Vichare (Arun Nalawade) travels all the way from their small village in the Konkan region in Maharashtra to Pune for getting his eyes checked . It turns out to be retino blastoma , a type of eye cancer that has only one cure - eye removal . Dr. Sane (Sandeep Kulkarni) asks Mr. Vichare to break the news to Parsha . Vichare is procrastinating at first but realizes later that the need of the hour is not only to break the news to Parsha , but also to show him the value of life and the joy of living even after rendered blind .

23 April 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Caught this movie on DD while flipping channels...And thank heavens, that too when it just started.. Having studied in Pune, this film touched off many happy memories of the city...that apart, one wonders why more movies like this aren't made...Every character is so well etched-the grandpa, the kid, the doc...except for the social worker who grates a tad, the rest of the movie hardly has a flaw...a deserving entry for the Oscars, even if it wasn't nominated...definitely leaves a lump in the throat...who sez u need mush to tickle ur lacrimals ? And to think that this movie needed Sachin Tendulkar to propagate it. Inspite of being in Marathi, there was hardly a moment where I wasn't able to follow the movie...the subtitles were good.. A must watch for any fan of good cinema.
