MOVIE REVIEW:Bumm Bumm Bole
Auhtor:

   

For friends, who may not be familiar with the original source of the
movie "Bumm Bumm Bole", it's an Official remake of Majid Majidi's world
famous Iranian masterpiece "Children of Heaven" or"Bacheha-Ye Aseman"
released in 1997, which was also nominated in the Best Foreign Film
Category at the Oscars. Majid is one of the most renowned new age
directors of World Cinema with a simple but unique vision of film-
making. Influenced by his magical art, Priyadarshan, the man behind
many recent hit comedies, returns with his own version of the classic
featuring the incomparable Darsheel Safary in the lead role.

Keeping its remake status in mind, I would like to review the movie in
two different sections here. One, as an individual piece of art
attempted by the Indian team of film-makers and Two, as the Official
Remake of Majid Majidi's emotional gem.

As a children movie alone, "Bumm Bumm Bole" is not at all impressive as
it should have been, considering its unusual emotional storyline about
a brother and sister. It somehow comes out with the same results as
previously seen in "Sikander" released in 2009. In fact it even starts
exactly in the same manner as "Sikander" where a child gets killed in a
bomb blast planned in the busy market. And after this clichéd opening,
the movie keeps moving at a slow pace till its climax, without any
crescendo kind of impact created by the director. Besides this, the
concluding moments showcasing a children marathon race, simply fall
flat in absence of any emotions, thrill or excitement factor put in by
the writers. Moreover the over exposure of the brand "Adidas" in
several scenes, looks quite over the top, irresponsible and unexpected
from the well known director, Priyadarshan.

However, the major flaw of the movie remains that instead of sticking
to its original plot of the shoe exchange between the two kids, the
screenplay tries to incorporate many other unwanted sub-plots into the
narration which look forced and completely misfit. For instance, What
is the use of showing a rape attempt, bomb blasts, terrorist link ups,
encounters and cold-blooded murders in a movie which is supposed to be
a Children's FLICK. Does the director thinks that these all elements
are necessary to fit-in, even when you are making a film around two
innocent and poor kids. And does he consider it to be fine enough to be
watched by the kids in the age-group of 5 to 15. I sincerely doubt it
and would strongly like to vote against any such venture which plays
around with the psyche of all those "Still not stuffed young minds".

Hence for that matter, "Bumm Bumm Bole" was a big unpleasant surprise
for me as it was not at all interested in talking about its main
storyline revolving around the two kids. On the contrary, the brilliant
performances of both Darsheel Safary and Ziyah Vastani do not turn out
to be that powerful, mainly due to the other sub plots interfering in
their scenes together at regular intervals. Both Atul Kulkarni and
Rituparna Sengupta also try their best to contribute in this
prestigious project, but their underwritten characters don't allow them
to do anything exceptional on the screen. As a result, the final
outcome is not able to touch the viewer emotionally and he just moves
out of the theater unmoved and unimpressed.

Interestingly, as I see it, the movie can be easily edited out again to
get a completely different version, which only depicts the relationship
between the two children and their parents. And that I think would be
more precise, complete and to the point version, as demanded by its
innocent theme written by Majid Majidi himself. Also this new edit
would in turn reduce the over-length of the movie which happens to be
another drawback of this dismal attempt by the Indian team.

Now comparing "Bumm Bumm Bole" with its Original Source "Children of
Heaven"….. it sadly stands nowhere around the excellence achieved by
the simplistic vision of Majid Majidi. In other words it's extremely
difficult to be as simple yet impressive as Majid and his movies. In
this context, I also remember the quote of a well known film-maker
which says that, "Cinematic masterpieces get made accidentally and they
cannot be ever remade as a version with the same genius."

That's exactly the case with "Bumm Bumm Bole" where it seems nothing
close to its Original Iranian classic and just remains another version
attempted by a successful director of Hindi Cinema. Priyadarshan very
carelessly wastes the innocent plot of two kids using the same pair of
shoes for their school among the other rotten sub-plots in the script.
Strangely, he never cares to elaborate on the time structure of the two
school shifts and neither he focuses on the relationship between the
four family members in specific. Also the premises of the story remains
confused between Assam and Kashmir with people wearing misleading
outfits in the backdrop. Still, the cinematography is excellent and the
two kids are a pleasure to watch.

Summing up, I would like to inform that few years back there was
another Hindi Version of this Classic made in the year 2006 with the
title "Salaam Bachhe". It was a kind of B-C grade movie which
completely followed Majid's masterpiece scene by scene. Strictly
speaking where this 2006 version was A Brutal Murder of the Original,
the present 2010 version is a Soft Murder of the same.

So watch "Bumm Bumm Bole"….only if you want to ruin the immense
pleasure, satisfaction and joy of watching Majid Majidi's "Children of
Heaven".
