Kabhi Paas, Kabhi Fail (1999)Best Children

Kabhi Paas, Kabhi Fail (1999)Best Children 

Awards National Film Award for Best Children’s Film (Year 1999) Best Child Artist – Queen’s Child Guidence Centre – USA
Language: Hindi Starring: Sajeel Parakh, Saurabh Shukla Director: Virendra Saini Eight-year-old Robin is a math wiz. His flair for numbers has earned him the admiration of his whole village, and the young boy, too, uses his talent to help the villagers in their everyday 

calculations. Set in a quaint Goan village, Kabhi Paas, Kabhi Fail, begins by introducing Robin’s (Parakh) happy little world and its many inhabitants. His parents are nurturing and appreciative of his skills, his dog Koko is his constant companion and confidante. We also meet an enthusiastic shop owner, an affectionate washerwoman, a genial priest — each one, Robin’s friend and well-wisher. Robin’s blissful life is threatened with the arrival of his unscrupulous uncle, Joe (Shukla). Joe coaxes Robin’s parents to send the boy to the city with him for better education. His true intention however is to make money off Robin’s extraordinary mind. For a child raised in a loving environment and among good people, it takes a while for Robin to recognize the exploitative world he has been thrown into. Joe’s manipulations and the smooth-talking world of showbiz is an education of sorts for the young boy. He becomes Joe’s performing monkey and the dream of studying in a good school eludes him. Kabhi Paas, Kabhi Fail is the directorial debut of ace cinematographer Virendra Saini, known for his sublime work in films like Sparsh (1980), Chashme Buddoor (1981) and Salim Langde Pe Mat Ro (1989) among others. The film benefits from Saini’s solid understanding of imagery — the visually stunning idyllic rural scenery signifies Robin’s innocence and the untainted village life. And as the scene moves to the city, the dominance of indoor shots could well be a metaphor for Robin’s caged status. Thanks to Saini’s long association with the New Wave cinema, Kabhi Paas… has some delightful cameos in store, as arthouse biggies like Naseeruddin Shah, Deepti Naval and Tom Alter join in and even sing the songs themselves. As Robin, Sajeel Parakh’s cheerful disposition is both endearing and effortless. His camaraderie with the the dog (Sona, the adorable Labrador playing Koko) is one of the highlights of the movie. The young actor is firmly supported by the ever dependable Saurabh Shukla, as the cunning yet comically craven Joe.
