Storyline

A tree narrates the story of four Mumbai-based school-children: Priya, Karan, Ritesh and Laddu, who are curious about a beggar, Raavan, and decide to observe him. With the help of a young construction laborer, Ram, they steal material from a construction site, build a tree-house in order to spy on him - a process that ends up in friendship. Things take a turn for the worst when a builder, Bakshi, asks his assistant, Gupta, to cut the tree down. The children object but are told that this action has been approved by the local government. The question remains: What can the children do - especially when they face opposition from their parents, and that Bakshi has not only made a donation to their society but also has Raavan arrested - in the state of Maharashtra that has set a near dubious record of cutting over Eleven Lakh Thirty Thousand trees in a five year period (2002-2007).

Mithunda is just superb....
22 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Before we get into the film, here's a special mention to: Mithunda, this film has him, and the biggest plus point is already packaged. The Multiple-National-Award-Winner never disappoints, and 'Zor Laga Ke Haiya' is no exception.

Now coming to the film. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise... 'Zor Laga Ke Haiya' is beautiful film. Debutant Director Girish Girija Joshi makes a film with a noble intentions, and the message is really effective. "Save Our Tress" says the film, and after watching the honest attempt you actually support the issue.

The film is directed well, the Cinematography is perfect, and the Music is decent.

Talking of performances: It's a Mithunda show all the way. Mahesh Manjrekar is funny; making you laugh at the right places. Gulshan Grover is superb.... and he sure Loves Nature. The kids do a decent job, especially the one who plays Seema Biswas's son. Riya Sen, Seema Biswas, Raj Zutshi are passable in cameos.

On the whole 'Zor Laga Ke Haiya' is a sincere attempt that deserves a watch. Go For It!
