While a lot of Bollywood films are considered children friendly, there are not a lot made specifically for children. On a day like today, that celebrates children and the inner child in you, it is but fair to take a look at some truly beautiful movies made about and for children.
1. Stanley Ka Dabba
Amole Gupte debuted as a director with this amazing children centered film and boy, did he make a splash! Bringing together a beautiful story of school and lunch boxes, Stanley Ka Dabba was exactly the kind of movie needed to be made for people to revisit their childhood in all its glory. However, despite all the happy memories, the film has a subtle message to it and one really has to pay attention to the movie to understand the underlying point.
2. Raju Chacha
An Anil Devgn directorial, Raju Chacha had Ajay Devgn and Kajol playing the lead roles. Narrating the story of three kids who are trapped by a villain trying to steal their property after the death of their father, this movie was a keeper for the ages. A perfect medley of nostalgia, drama, suspense and thrill, Raju Chacha was a treat for sore eyes.
3. King Uncle
Directed by Rakesh Roshan, this movie talks about what happens when you let your guard down. Revolving around the story of a strict and controlling man (played by Jackie Shroff,) King Uncle shows how all one needs is a child to let go off all the things holding you back. A coming of age story, this Rakesh Roshan movie still gives one major family goals even though you have watched it multiple times.
4. Mr. India
Directed by Shekhar Kapur, Mr. India is perhaps extremely relevant even now. With clearly thought out villains, ghosts and superheroes, Mr. India was the perfect combination of fun, laughter, drama, tragedy and sadness. While all the characters played their parts brilliantly, the film would not be the success it was had it not been for the beautiful story line. If you are feeling particularly nostalgic about your childhood, watch the movie today!
5. Chachi 420
Directed by Kamal Haasan, Chachi 420 was an adaptation of the Hollywood super hit, Mrs. Doubtfire. Based on the story of a father going above and beyond to make things right with his daughter, Chachi 420 was one of the most heartwarming films made about the relationship between a father and his daughter. You know what to watch to take you down memory lane today!
6. Koi Mil Gaya
Another Rakesh Roshan directorial, Koi Mil Gaya was all about how you can excel if you have a protective hand making sure you are okay. Loosely drawing inspiration from Hollywood movies like ET, Koi Mil Gaya showed the beauty of acceptance and how one grows through adversities. Definitely a must watch film on a day like today!
7. Taare Zameen Par
Another film about accepting children despite their shortcomings and pitfalls, Taare Zameen Par was about accepting your child with both the negatives and the positives. This movie was Aamir Khan’s debut as a director and not many can bring to life a story like this with just the right amount of emotions and intensity. With a wonderful message at the end, Taare Zameen Par needed to be made and told with a loud and clear message. As parents, you should do all you can in your power to help your child grow, even if the child has problems you do not understand.
Here’s wishing all of you a very happy Children’s Day and if you have other movies you would like us to watch today, comment and let us know!
