Story: Set in Jamshedpur of early 80s, in an era when there were no TVs, Internet or mobile phones, the story revolves around a fourteen year old boy named Vedant(Sohail Lakhani). Vedant, who has just stepped into his teens is going through a disturbed phase in his life, because of academic pressure and his infatuation with a colony girl Jenny (Apoorva Arora ). To worsen the situation, enters Ratan (Suraj Singh), his competitor, a guy from the same neighbourhood. Adding another twist to the so called love story, is the return of Vedant’s elder brother Vidur (Delzad Hiravali), who is deaf and comes home for his Holi holidays. Parents Mukund (Sachin Khedekar) and Sudha (Tanvi Azmi), get too engrossed with Vidur and Vedant starts feeling neglected. After the whole muddle, Vedant realises that not only his brother, but also his parents are special for him. He understands why his parents are considerate towards Vidur. The title proves right, as the flick shows that things may be stretchable, but the bubble of patience bursts after a point. Story treatment : The subject of the story has been dealt with smartly. Depiction of 80s and that of a small steel city like Jamshedpur, has been done to perfection with every minute detail taken care of, even something as trivial as the telephone model and the pressure cooker used in those times. The characters look pretty realistic. The bell bottom pants would remind you of that era and so would the fact that then, love was just about having a glimpse of your beloved. The director has maintained the simplicity of time, which makes the movie look realistic. In fact, one of the scenes that shows the importance of treating teenage children as friends and building a rapport with them, has been shot very sensitively. The movie is surely about parenting. As a teenager, Vedant’s mood swings have been captured really well. Star Cast : The central character played by Sohail Lakhani, looks his age and his portrayal of a confused boy torn between infatuation, parents and academics is good, but somewhere he fails to create an impact. Seasoned actors like Sachin Khedekar and Tanvi Azmi, who play Vidur and Vedant’s parents, show a lot of poise in their performance. They complement each other and Tanvi needs a special mention for her ease with the sign language. Portraying the role of a mother of two sons, Tanvi maintains the right balance. Delzad Hiravali, who is a new face and plays a deaf boy is just about okay. Direction : Sanjivan Lal, has touched upon a topic that would take one back to school, when Internet and mobile phones didn't form a part of our existence. A sensitive issue like how parents of teenage and psychically handicapped kids should deal with their problems, has been depicted tactfully. Also, how parents should at times leave their children to handle their own issues, has also been touched upon well by Lal. He has chosen the cast carefully and using a kite as a symbolic reference is beautiful. Dialogues / Cinematography / Music : Dialogues written by Sanjivan Lal are straight forward and simple. Cinematographer Anshul Chobey's camera work is simple yet nice. Music by Hanif Shaikhand Bapi Tutul goes unnoticed. The movie could have done without the party song sequence. 3 Ups and 3 Downs : The story of the film is very realistic, but it would have created more of an impact if it was set in today's time, the teens could have related to it in better way. The film has children as actors, but it is not a children's film. Few of the fight scenes look pretty unrealistic. Parents of teenage kids can give the movie a shot.
