When you have a dream , the only thing you would require to achieve it is through desire and passion. Gattu tells the story of a street kid who achieves the impossible.
This Day That Year Box Office : When Irrfan Khan And Rishi Kapoor Came Together In D-Day For The First And Last Time
A street kid, Gattu , takes up the challenge of defeating a local champ Kaali in a kite-flying competition. To compete from the top level, he infiltrates a school terrace by impersonating as the student and also makes new friends.
Directed by Rajan Khosla , Gattu is a welcome change as it brings back the childhood memories of kite-flying , being mischievous in school , playing pranks on your teacher. The film duration is just 75 mins and every frame is amazing to watch. The kite-flying scene is eye-catching ( on the same par with Hollywood film Kite Runner). Cinematography is good. Dialogues are nice. Editing is crispy. Screenplay is gripping. Hats off to Rajan Khosla for choosing a different subject based in North India. Mohd Samad was perfect for the role of street-smart , mischievous, good-at-heart Gattu. He emotes so well through his eye and is amazing to watch him act.
Gattu did not do well at the box office but was an honest attempt, made on a shoe-string budget, with beautiful picturization. Gattu went on international accolades at various film festivals.
