banno, dhanno and teja in bumm-bumm-bhole-land

buy it

I’m not happy with the synopsis. Why, oh, why, the sad story of a happy film?

I guess I won’t be able to crib about Shemaroo anymore.Though the good news is they haven’t mastered this, Reliance has. Shemaroo is only distributing it. Several friends from FTII were involved in checking the technical quality of the DVD mastering, so I’m hoping it won’t disappoint.

A friend saw it at Crossword.

You can also buy it at Flipkart here. You get 2 bonus movies with it.

It comes with Tamil, Kannada and Bengali subtitles. Need to confirm whether it has English subtitles or not.

[Edited to add: Yes, it does have English subtitles. The Flipkart page makes it seem as if it doesn’t.]

Please ignore the synopsis, and write your own reviews.

[Edited to add: The DVD also has some great archival footage of Chacha Nehru at the inception of CFSI with lots of kids.]

    Oh yes, absolutely. That child on the cover looks familiar, should it?

      Ankur, do get it, and review it. Yes, the child should look familiar.:) Dhanno, the star.

    But you don’t mind if I crib about Shemaroo do you?
    I think I’ll be able to get it when I am in India next time!
    And I am looking forward to it!

      Yes, after 4 years, certainly calls for celebration.
      I look forward to your seeing the film, and reviewing it.:)

      Natasha, I made the film 4-5 years ago. CFSI finally came out with a proper DVD and actually got it out into the stores. So Yipee Doo indeed! Look forward to your take on the film.:)

    Congratulations Banno! Hope to get my hands on your film soon. Not sure if flipkart delivers to the village I am currently residing in!

      Kate, easy to recommend since it is my film.:) The other 2 films on the DVD are also good.

    I’m sure I posted a comment here yesterday about putting this on my to-buy list when I’m in India next!😦

      Anu, never mind, as long as you do get the DVD, a comment one day late, does not matter.:)

      I know, Dipali. And it feels good to have my work out in a store. Though it would have felt better to have been out in a cinema hall.:)
