Movie Review: Children’s films have always been neglected in Bollywood. In the recent past, filmmakers like Vishal Bharadwaj ( Makdee and Blue Umbrella) have made some beautiful children-centric films. Of late, Chillar Party and Stanley ka Dabba have also managed to revive this particular genre in our Hindi Film Industry.
One such director is Sanjivan Lal who makes an earnest effort with Bubble Gum; a cute, relatable story. First things first, Bubble Gum does not have any well-known superstars. However, this does not stop it from tugging at your heartstrings. The concept and treatment of the movie take you back in an age when we were kids ourselves. You can actually feel like you are re-living your childhood all over again.
