The Blue Umbrella

An engaging execution of a heart warming story by Ruskin Bond - The Blue Umbrella. The neeli chattri song is so addictive that Anush listened to it a zillion times.

Reminding one of the hills in Sound of Music and the simplicity of Malgudi Days, the chirpy Shreya delivers a superb performance. What a contrast to the kids in KKHH and so on.

The story is about greed and selflessness, about loss and discovery. It centres around the little girl Biniya and her much coveted blue umbrella and what happens to both.

A MUST SEE, especially for the kids, for the songs at least.
