Storyline

Nanhe Jaisalmer lives a poor lifestyle in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, along with his mom, Sarla, and sister, Suman. His father took advantage of Sarla's illiteracy, sold their property and absconded, leaving the trio to live a near-destitute life. When he was four he was cast in a movie starring Bobby Deol. This minor role did have a major impact on his life and he became obsessed with Bobby so much so that he had Suman write to him regularly as well as collected posters and photographs and hung them on the walls of his tiny bedroom. Six years later he is now a tourist guide, able to converse in Italian, German, French, and English, even though he neglected to attend school, instead spent all his spare time watching Bobby's movies, and became the main bread-earner for his family. He instantly gives his approval to Badal (a movie title starring Bobby) who wants to wed Suman. Nanhe is thrilled when he finds out that a Bobby will be appearing in 'Yaar' which is scheduled to be filmed in ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a movie for every one
24 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie definitely deserves to be tax-free, as it caters to many segments of film viewers, embedding a very important message, especially for people of developing countries where full scale literacy of its citizens is still an issue. An incident in the movie where someone puts a tattoo on the hero of the movie the small child Nanhe's hand and on his camel derogatorily writing 'Gadha' which means donkey and the hero does not know it, and only realizes it when everybody makes fun of him, thats when the message of getting educated seeps deep into his psyche. This reminds one of an old movie called 'Unpadh' for the message of how important it is to be educated and also of another recent movie called 'Billu barber' later renamed 'Billu' starring Shahrukh Khan showing the craze of fans for their film stars in small towns of India, herein one cannot forget the Jaya Bahaduri starrer 'Guddi'. This is a must-see movie for children. There cannot be a more innocent movie for anybody with a message than Nanhe Jaisalmer.
