SYNOPSIS
An eight-year-old Sunny Gill has always had a blocked nose, and therefore, no sense of smell. A freak accident gives Sunny the most refined sense of smell ever. The entire dog squad of the country's police force cannot sniff what he can. But is that enough for Sunny and his young pals Google and Twitter to combat a menacing & ruthless gang of car thieves? What starts out with tracing a single missing car in the housing society, ends up busting the heftiest car racket in the country. No villain could ever be as unlikely. But then, neither could the gang of detectives!

Verdict: Amole Gupte's artistic frames leave you wanting more. We have been blessed with five senses and to be honest, life can be pretty difficult if you can't use anyone of those senses. If you think, that you can survive without the sense of smell, the first 15 mins of Sniff will convince you otherwise. Talking []... ...Read full review
The nose truly is the underdog of the human head, at least when it comes to Bollywood. Because the awkward little organ cannot be sexualized like its prettier counterparts (the lips, the eyes or the hair) it is often deemed unworthy of attention. Until movies like Sniff!!! decide to turn the spotlight on it with a fragrant idea. ...Read full review
Sunny (Khushmeet) has a nose. But its merely an appendage till one day it starts to do what noses are meant to: smell. Ta da. The boy with the blocked olfactory senses can now sniff out stuff from far and wide: pickles in jars an inch away, and car chors miles off. ...Read full review
Known for his path-breaking childrens films, Amol Guptes latest offering - Sniff - which hits theatres on Friday offers us a sweet insight into the world of kids. Sniff is the story of Sunny Gill (Khushmeet Gill) who cannot smell. An accident in a school lab leads to unpredictable results of mixing different elements and suddenly, our hero is cured. ...Read full review
There are two things you can be assured of when you watch a film written and directed by Amole Gupte. The film-maker, who had us licking our lips after the tasty little Stanley Ka Dabba, manages to make food an indelible part of his latest film Sniff!!! too. ...Read full review
There is something beautiful about the simplicity of Amol Gupte`s aesthetic. The filmmaker priorities storytelling over style, which is why - despite an ace technical team - the opening credits of his latest film, Sniff, are made up of highly straightforward overhead food shots that look like something from Zee TV back in the day, not something gloriously oversaturated or mastercheffed up with slick wizardry ...Read full review
Amole Gupte`s Sniff opens with delectable images of spices and food in the tradition of a cookery show. It lingers on and lovingly until we`ve at least theoretically caught a whiff. ...Read full review
Sunny Gill (Khushmeet Gill), an eight-year-old boy, has always had a blocked nose, and therefore, no sense of smell. This seems to be a prominent problem as he comes from a family of pickle makers. A freak accident gives Sunny the most refined sense of smell ever. ...Read full review
The best thing about "Sniff" is the wonderful children - God bless their untarnished souls - who play detectives to a car thief in Mumbai. But wait. This is much later. This is where our interest in the goings-on begins to flag. The minute Sunny Gill (the wonderfully solemn and wise Khushmeet) turns super-snooper the plot loses its flexibility and momentum and falls prey to a kind of hushed rush of juvenile activities that don`t really add up to much. ...Read full review
Amusing children today is a task that requires superhuman talent and often, superhumans too. And given the ocean of content available to them at the tap of a touch screen, managing to interest, engage or even distract them enough to make them look up from their phones warrants extraordinary skill. To that effect, Amole Gupte`s films have managed fairly well, even ensuring the experience doesn`t become an ordeal for pappa and mummy. ...Read full review
Many Mumbaikars would look upon the prospect of going through life without a sense of smell as a blessing, but its a condition that makes little Sunny Gill sad. Sunny (Khushmeet Gill) is the eight-year-old protagonist of Sniff, an otherwise happy-go-lucky Sikh boy who is heartbroken that he has never been able to appreciate the myriad smells of spices in his familys famed pickles, or that he cant tell when hes accidentally stepped in dog-poo and stunk up the classroom. ...Read full review
Writer-director Amole Gupte is back with another slice-of-life story involving children being adorable and not annoying. This time around his central protagonist is the sullen Sunny (Khushmeet Gill), an eight-year-old boy who cannot smell. His family of three which includes his grandmother is worried because he needs a functioning nose to take over the family`s pickle business. "Na soongna na dekhne ke barabar hai," says grandma. If there`s one thing that Sniff gets right is that children are under pressure to live up to the expectations of the adults. But this is not a source of melodrama and conflict. Instead Gupte shows how the lack of a sensory experience impacts a child. ...Read full review

A simple childrens film with a surreal concept, Sniff is a fascinating bundle of contradictions. This movie is about a young boy going from having no sense of smell to being the superman of olfactory senses. But for a kid with such an outrageously cool gift, writer-director Amole Gupte keeps his adventures a little too domestic. Even at its most perilous juncture, Sniff`s adventure feels like its at home in a TV series like Wagle Ki Duniya. The movie couldve benefitted with a little more swashbuckling fun. ...Read full review
If there is anyone championing the cause for children in Bollywood, thats director Amole Gupte for you. Beginning as the creative consultant on Aamir Khans Taare Zameen Par (a movie which he was supposed to direct), Amole Gupte directed two lovely movies with kids and their issues as the crux of the premise Stanley Ka Dabba and Hawaa Hawaai. Now he is back with another kiddo movie, Sniff, that has a boy who has the best smelling nose in the world and uses it to solve cases. Heres our review of Sniff ...Read full review
In the thematic short-film anthology, Shor Se Shuruaat, a Zoya Akhtar mentored segment called Aamer captured the essence of Indian noise in the truest sense. A hearing-impaired Mumbai street kid has a bittersweet experience acclimatizing to the possibilities of his new electronic hearing-aid device. His excitement to digest everything he has missed out on quickly turns into disillusionment with the citys relentless assault of sounds. In the end, he simply lowers the volume to re-embrace his vacuum of soothing silence. ...Read full review
