"He is only
a kid..." is something that is heard ever too often. But
when a kid displays the valour and wit that is no
child's play and the presence of mind that belies his
age, it certainly is no kidding matter. Hari Puttar is
the awe-inspiring story of one such kid.
Hari Prasad Dhoonda (Zain Khan) of Hari Puttar, as he is
fondly called, is a bright 10 year old who has recently
moved from India to the U.K. with his parents (Sarika
and Zakir Khan).
His father, Prof. Dhoonda is assigned to work on a
secret project with the Defence forces at a remote
location in the U.K. He has access to confidential
information that is stores on a chip and safely kept at
a vacation for the entire family and one night before
they take off, Hari's mother sends him off in the attic
bedroom as a punishment for no big fault of his. As luck
would have it, the next morning the whole family leaves
in a tearing hurry, forgetting that they have left
something integral behind - namely Hari and his little
cousin Tuk Tuk (Swimi Khara). But this realization does
not dawn until they are half way with their journey.
When Hari and Tuk Tuk discover that have the large house
to themselves, they are ecstatic with their new found
freedom, but not for long....
Little do they know that, an
infamous Don, Kali Mirchi has assigned two bumbling
burglars named as Filter and Diesel to steal the
secret formula chip from Hari's house.

of their arrival in London, Hari's aunt Santosh (Lilette
Dubey) and Uncle DK (Jackie Shroff) visit the Dhoonda
residence with their own as well as DKs Boss children.
DK (Jackie Shroff) is a
technology wizard. Lost in his own world but is also
capable of the odd eccentricity and fun in a typical
Punjabi style. Santosh (Lillete Dubey) is a contemporary
woman who is friendly and warm in equal measure and
represents the best traditions of a loud, gregarious
friend than a nagging mother.
Suddenly the house is filled with the effervescence of no
less than ten kids. At this point, everything goes for a
spin for Hari Puttar not only is thrown out of his room to
accommodate the girls. He is also ragged and ridiculed by
all the other kids for being too naive. Hari Puttar
suddenly feels unwanted, undermined and unappreciated.
But Hari has a friend from his
fantasy world - Funtoon (Animated Character), who is
around when Hari really needs him. Funtoon is a fun
character. A 'Masti ka boss' and helps Hari cheer up when
he is down or when he is upto some masti.
Filter (Vijay Raaz) is a dumb and clumsy thief whose
pretensions on being smart and quick thinking fall flat in
the absence of Diesel, his partner in crime. Diesel (Saurabh
Shukla) is a greedy condescending small town thief who
can't believe his luck to be involved in a high level
heist only to see all his dreams go awry due to the
machinations of a 10 year old kid.
Sangeeta (Sarika) is a classic model for motherhood. She
is a warm and loving person who wants to make sure her
children are strong and disciplined. A trait borne out
later when Hari outwits the two convicts.
Hari Puttar (Zain Khan) is a fun loving independent and
strong boy, who is not afraid to take on two older goons.
At times brave, and at times enterprising, the plans he
puts in place to outwit the convicts is the stuff of
Tuk Tuk (Sweeny Khara) is a warm regular child who loves
to create mischief and have fun but is always bed ridden
due to illness. However her true calling comes in her
adventures with Hari when they set about to outwit the
But when Hari accidentally discovers the mission of the
burglars he is determined to save the secret formula from
being exposed. Is Hari able to outwit the persistent
Is Tuk Tuk an able partner to fight the thugs?
An entertaining film for children.
