Storyline

When an employee of Mumbai's Chandan Nagar leaves, he is replaced by a youth, Fatka, who has a stray dog, Bhidu (a.k.a. Buddy). There is no accommodation provided for this homeless orphan, so he and his pet decide to make an abandoned antique car their new home. There is some resentment from the children of the building, but Fatka gets accepted in the cricket team after he demonstrates his bowling capabilities. A chance visit by a politician, Shashikant Bhide, results in enforcement of new municipal legislation to capture all stray dogs, and the children decide to oppose it. Their attempt to secure 31 signatures from residents turns out to be in vain, and they decide to launch a unique protest. Shashikant puts pressure on Chandan Nagar's Secretary, Tandon, as well as launches his own campaign to enforce the legislation and ensure Bhidu's capture. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Innocent and Admirable
13 July 2011 | by (Reno, Nevada) – See all my reviews

No pretensions, no melodrama, no gimmicks but just plain honest movie making. Fresh artists, relatively new filmmakers and a simple script. If all those 'big Bollywood movies' refrain from complicating their sub-avg story-lines, some of the craziest films could actually become watchable.

Delhi Belly & Chillar Party - 2 decent movies releasing within a span of two weeks. That has got to be a record of sorts for the Hindi Industry. Among the hundreds of movies they throw at us every year, only a handful are worth our money & time, and I can assure you - Chillar Party (2011) is one of them.

What makes me wonder is - how a bunch of school kids can emote so well and deliver their lines with such conviction. There are many other movies other than Chillar Party where children have done a splendid job. Mainstream actors who call themselves "professionals" and "adults" who bomb on a regular basis should watch and learn. Comedy is top-notch and the screenplay fits the script like a glove. Most of the scenes will evoke a smile or a laugh and you wont mind a tiny bit when the movie sometimes teeters on the edge of childishness. I mean, for Gods' sake, the lead actors are kids, how else can you expect it to play out ?

It will remind us of our own childhood and bring back fond memories. But, importantly, the aim of the movie is not to move us emotionally or make us nostalgic, but to tell us in a subtle way that honesty & simplicity are the most cherished qualities a human being can have. Those are qualities we all had back when we were at school, but now our adulthood and the society we live in, has changed our sense or perception.
