Storyline

Chain Kulli Ki Main Kulli, a children's film, is a journey of an orphan boy of 13 years of age who dares to dream big and thereby, proves to the world that "Believe in yourself and the world will be at your feet". The film revolves around an orphan boy, Karan, who lives in a dilapidated orphanage owned by a stern, uncouth warden, John Kakkad. Karan has two dreams, one is to have parents and the other is to be a big cricketer. His inspiration is Kapil Dev since he has been brought up on the motivating stories of India's '83 world cup win by the orphanage caretaker, Bholu Dada who is a loving and a gentle old man. Karan's best buddy in the orphanage is Daboo who often lends his gentle ears to the aspirations which Karan lives on. His dreams take a turn when one day, he lays his hands on an old cricket bat which Karan is convinced is the bat that Kapil Dev used to win the '83 World Cup, and for him the bat becomes a magic bat.

An okay but forgettable movie for kids about believing in your dreams
14 August 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

A decent film for kids. It's much better than those pretentious kiddie movies like Krishh and Koi Mil Gayas but the fact that 'Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii' is a ripoff isn't exactly an advantage. Karan (Zain Khan) is a young orphan who dreams of being a cricket player. However, living in an orphanage, it seems an impossible dream until one day he finds a bat, not just an ordinary bat but a magical one.

This film has its share of flaws (which are many): The Hitler character was really annoying and the actor was pretty bad at playing the evil headmaster. It has it's share of melodrama (but then again it is targeted at the young audience). There are also many similarities to Nagesh Kukunoor's 'Iqbal' (which of course is a much better film).

Zain Khan is alright (even though he goes a little over the top quite frequently and annoys). Rahul Bose is good but this isn't among his best work, mostly because the role doesn't have much to offer. It's nice that he did a kids movie (in spite of being known for his intense roles) and he takes a back seat as he allows more scope for the newcomer kid. Meera Vasudevan has a very small and insignificant role but it's nice to see her after a long time (if only the role was something of substance).

So parents, uncles, aunts and whoever wants to enjoy a movie with their kids can give this forgettable film a go. Yes, you might enjoy it but it's not one you'd care to remember. Plus, I just didn't like that it was a ripoff, I mean, is it really that difficult to come up with an original idea?
