Storyline

Nanhe Jaisalmer lives a poor lifestyle in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, along with his mom, Sarla, and sister, Suman. His father took advantage of Sarla's illiteracy, sold their property and absconded, leaving the trio to live a near-destitute life. When he was four he was cast in a movie starring Bobby Deol. This minor role did have a major impact on his life and he became obsessed with Bobby so much so that he had Suman write to him regularly as well as collected posters and photographs and hung them on the walls of his tiny bedroom. Six years later he is now a tourist guide, able to converse in Italian, German, French, and English, even though he neglected to attend school, instead spent all his spare time watching Bobby's movies, and became the main bread-earner for his family. He instantly gives his approval to Badal (a movie title starring Bobby) who wants to wed Suman. Nanhe is thrilled when he finds out that a Bobby will be appearing in 'Yaar' which is scheduled to be filmed in ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Inspiring movie
9 June 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I am not of Indian decent but i love watching Bollywood movies of late. They maybe generally viewed by the western country moviegoers/watchers as cheesy due to to their song& dance but take time to just stop for a while and actually watch the whole film, you will find them interesting if not interesting. This film is one of them that just gets better the longer you spend watching it.

The boy hero Nanhe is your typical boy from the "other" side of the road one could say. He's dirt poor and illiterate. But even though illiterate, he knows four languages, a valuable skill he has for his trade (safari tourist guide). His boss, they call her "madame" has faith in this kid that given the much needed education, can be really successful in life. However, Nanhe isn't interested in learning at all, all he dreams of is meeting up with his "friend" Bobby Deol, the Bollywood actor.

Reluctant nonetheless, he gives in to the wishes of his mother and boss to study. This due to the fact that his "friend" told him to do so and value the privilege to to be able to study. Without having to say too much about the movie, our boy protagonist spends time with his friend while balancing it with his studies. His friend not only spends time with him but also inspires him in many ways.

the end part might be a bit cheesy but heart warming still. Overall, Its a definitely a good break from your typical Hollywood film. The characters are well played out, story pacing might be slow at times, but its forgivable and Nanhe the boy protagonist just grows into you. its not Oscar level material but its a feel good movie that's worth the watch.
