Bubble Gum: Childhood Nostalgia

Synopsis: The film is set in the steel city of Jamshedpur in the 1980s – an era when there was no TV, Internet, mobile and Facebook! It is a fun, frothy and warm coming of an age story of a fourteen year old Vedant. He has just stepped out of childhood and has not yet stepped into adulthood. It is while going through turbulent phase of life in his academically critical year of Standard 9, first love or rather infatuation happens to him and sends his relationship with his family and his world upside down finally leading him to discover the meaning of love, life and relationship in a positive way

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. 

This is why we instantly relate to Vedant’s story, who has a crush on Jenny. Vedant’s life undergoes a drastic metamorphosis. Bubble Gum revolves around Vedant’s story and how he understands the true meaning of love and life. 
 
The story of Bubble gum though simple is truly engrossing. Moreover, the characters stay with you even after the end of the movie. All the child actors have performed their parts with commendable ease and brilliance. They are natural and convincing. The senior actors also deserve a special mention. Both, Sachin Khedekar and Tanvi Azmi have done a good job. 
 
Bubble Gum, like Stanley ka Dabba and Chillar Party, has proved that we need to encourage this genre. Many times such small films make a bigger impact than the so-called big budget Bollywood extravaganzas. 
 
Final Word: Watch Bubble Gum if you want to be transported back into an age when everything was simple and innocent.  Go for it!!!
