An Efficient Work!
26 April 2013 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Honestly, I cannot recollect talking to my parents about my my first kiss or my.... Moreover I don't remember the root cause of its instigation. Being born in the 90s, I can so much relate to this great endeavor, BP!

Riteish Deshmukh has sealed his place in Marathi cinema with BP which boats off a wonderful cast, new story & an even amazing plot. All the realities based on how kids (aged 13 in the 80s & 11 in this YOLO gen) get so inquisitive to learn about sex, pleasure & porn. The detailing (with absolute perfection & no anachronism) of both the generations is very fine. The impulses, conversations, dialogs & monikers are so pure, no stone has been left unturned to create a movie worth watching and which deals with a sensitive topic like sex education. Also, keeping the obscenity at bay & driving straight to the point with no masochism, Ravi Jadhav has done a terrific job.

The child actors are great with special mention to Prathamesh Parab; Kishore Kadam is genuine; Sai Tamhankar is voluptuous & perfect as the neighborhood bombshell while the four lead artistes are true in their characters, besotted with reel-life chemistry & wonderful in their demeanor. Music is good (although some tunes were plagiarized). The screenplay is entertaining & I totally enjoyed it, not only as a cinema but also as a good message-sender.

BOTTOM LINE: Every child should watch this movie with both his/her parents. Parents should see this as a great & non-vulgar weapon to sex education. You cannot have such a beautiful guide. 9/10!
