Storyline

Laxmi and her three male schoolmates study in a small rural school in India. They face considerable opposition and taunts as they come from a very poor background.

Then one day they come across a youth who calls himself Chetan, who wears a loincloth, and cannot speak a word. They find that he has magical qualities and can perform several athletic feats. Laxmi and her friends befriend Chetan, and together they decide to change their lives once and for all. But can magic solve their problems forever? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

It could have been a good film
27 January 2013 | by sliddar121See all my reviews

This is the Hindi dubbed version released in 1998. The original was released in 1984. They have decided to re-shoot and add some new scenes with Satish Kaushik, Harish and Urmila. These added scenes have nothing to do with the original movie, and are boring and act more as a story breaker.

The original Malayalam version and the added new scenes really stand out really badly and are easily identifiable. They have so badly messed up the original movie, most of the time you don't even know what is happening.

I suggest you watch the original version as that is more simple, enjoyable and straightforward.

I have given it 4 stars for the scenes in the movie which are from the original 1984 movie. The new 1998 re-shot added scenes bring the movie down by 6 stars.
