Storyline

In a small town in central India, kids and adults are equally obsessed with kite-flying. The airspace is dominated by a black kite called Kali with mysterious origins. A street kid Gattu, dreams of defeating Kali but fails. He discovers that the local school has a roof which will give him a vantage point. Impersonating as a student he sneaks into the school and must now pretend to study. The only problem -- he is illiterate! Nonetheless, the little street urchin takes up the challenge. Dreams aren't impossible when the desire is strong. Written by Wouter van der Sluis

Totally amazing concept
20 December 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Indian education system is trying to aware more and more kids about education and system is trying that more and more kids should get proper education because child labor spoils there childhood and they live in slums and die in slums.this is the biggest problem of this country.

now about the about first i say it should be recommended to more and more festivals coz its basic concept was very marvelous.what a movie great acting by its lead actor and this kind of movie should be shown to our country's filmmakers who are spoiling money and audience time.

This movie proves that if you have good story and great casting you can create any thing even in low budget.I appreciate for the storyline of this movie.
