Children’s Film Festival In Mumbai

Summer holidays have begun and most of the children have either gone off for a vacation to far off places or they are busy watching TV or are on the net. There are some of them who have come to Mumbai to spend their holidays, I see them enjoying, playing outdoor games in the building compound and I am sure most of them would be interested in watching films, especially children’s films.

Now who doesn’t like watching children’s films, especially if the actors are children themselves?

Specially if they are films like Santosh Sivan's 'Halo' and 'Malli', Sai Paranjpye's 'Bhago Bhoot', Pankaj Advani's 'Sunday', Sankalp Meshram's 'Chutkan ki Mahabharat' or Batul Mukhtiar’s 'Lilkee'

Surely they will like to see ‘Halo’, a story of seven-year-old Sasha's search for her pup who's got lost on the streets of Mumbai.

Or maybe 'Lilkee', a story of an11-year-old village girl, brought to the city by a working couple to take care of their baby.

Yeah! The Children's Film Society, India is organizing a summer bonanza of its films to be shown from 3 May 2010 to 31 May 2010. The films are on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays every week of the month of May, 2 shows, one at 11 am, and one at 4 pm.

All the children, whom I used to take for children’s film are grown ups now and are in their naughty age, but what the heck…. I still enjoy children’s film and I might as well go with my friends who share my taste.

What say you??

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
