A Superb Movie :-)
4 January 2013 | by aakashjanSee all my reviews

A superb movie with a superb story and dialogues. Dedicated to all teenagers but made specially for parents. Specially Chiu's(Bhagyashree Shankpal's) smile will make you die.

Balak Palak provides the space for adolescent adventures but has enough moral fibre to keep the adventures from going haywire. BP is a message movie about the importance of talking to children about the birds-and-bees business that doubles up as a nostalgia piece about a community-based way of life in which experimentation and edification share an address. The Director stays away from double entendre and keeps the movie firmly on a UA-rated course despite the boldness of the subject. The young actors perform their roles admirably, and betray no awkwardness about being avid consumers of adult material.
