Ravi and Padmini share a strained relationship due to their teenage son Buddhi's intellectual handicap. Buddhi, a mildly autistic slow learner displays his flair for art but his parents, with their middle-class insecurities, neither recognize nor encourage his talent. Driven by Padmini's social insecurities and Ravi's guilt for dropping Buddhi as a baby, the parents chase an unreal dream of seeing their son as a normal good student who, like others, must become an engineer or a doctor. While Dr Sen, the neurologist, tries hard to make Padmini accept the reality, Ravi's accidental meeting with Dr Sathya - the maverick scientist, leads him to the experimental "Brain Booster" that can make Buddhi a genius. The magic drug has a side effect - Amnesia, which Ravi thinks is a blessing since Buddhi has no good memories to talk about.

Appreciable work done by debutant (?) Kaushik Roy!
Credit goes to Kaushik for bringing such a fine and different film. You wouldn't see this kind of film being made in Bollywood nowadays. Performance by Irfan Khan (as always), Sobana, and Dhruv is definitely worth watching.
This movie interested me a lot because it had different but a good theme, which a lot of bollywood movies lack these days. This movie shows you how hard is parenting to a mentally-challenged child and the consequences you could face. It shows how parents dream of their children's success; hence sometimes they discourage their children's talents. I am not going to get much into this because I recommend watching this movie. It'll be a different experience indeed.
