This trait of Pappu was a big disturbing fact for his
father Chotulal and his mother Sumitra. They had to face
the wrath of the villagers every time when Pappu ran away.
Chotulal was completely frustrated, but Pappu's mother
know that one day Pappu would do the whole village proud.
The same belief and faith was felt by Kuhu, the 6 year old
blind girl played by Rajvi Suchak, who was Pappu's best
friend. Both of them shared a warm affectionate and
understanding relationship. Seeing them both together
would make anyone happy and joyous. Pappu could do
anything for Kuhu's happiness and so one day when they
were watching television and Pappu was describing the
visuals to Kuhu, Kuhu got very excited to listen to the
fact that people can actually fly like birds on
parachutes. Kuhu desires to fly and that desire becomes
Pappu's challenge to get a parachute in the village and
make Kuhu fly on that.
Now they genuinely feel the urge of going back to their
homes, their village life. But the 5 kids are helples in
this vast city.
Pappu and his four friends face obstacles in Mumbai as
they are mistaken to be accomplices of four terrorists who
have also arrived in the city with evil plans.
What happens to the kids? Do they find the parachute for
Do they meet their parents back in their hometown? How
does Mumbai treat these small kids?
Siddhartha Sanghani and Rajvi Suchak do very well in
enacting their characters. Zakir Hussain and Rupali
Ganguli, as Pappu's parents are subtle and okay. Kay Kay
Menon has a limited scope in the story. Liliput and Sanjay
Mishra virtually have no role whatsoever. Rajpal Yadav and
Jackie Shroff appear in their brief roles.
Cinematographer Soumik Haldar captures the scenic beauty
of Nainital very well. Satrangee Parachute has children
who display Indian values, this is quite realistic. It has
a fresh new story, nice music and good photography. It
does have a fresh subject.
