Chintu Ka Birthday Review

Chintu Ka Birthday’ is a small budget film with a big surprise; perfect to beat the Lockdown blues
Quarantine has made us watch so many films of different genres, that now if you are looking for a simple modest film which brings a smile to your face. ‘Chintu ka birthday’ is definitely your go to movie!! It is a simple story that deals with the bonding of a family during tough times like war.
Chintu Ka Birthday is a story of a 6 year old boy named Chintu, stuck in Iraq with family at the times of Saddam’s fall. It is his 6th Birthday and the family promises to throw a birthday party for him as last year his birthday could not be celebrated. This birthday party in a war torn Baghdad becomes the centre of the film. The entire film revolves around the family trying to have a normal birthday celebration amidst their barbaric surroundings.
Vinay Pathak is excellent as Chintu’s father and and the film is an ode to a father for whom the happiness of his child is supreme. Tilotama Shome is delightful as a mother and Seema Pahwa as the nagging mother in law is amazing. The kids Bisha Chaturvedi and Vedant Chibber are a treat to watch and are quite adorable. All of them have acted so naturally that their brilliant acting has become the heart of this story of a simple middle class family.
Chintu ka Birthday is beautifully written and directed by Devanshu Kumar and Satyanshu Singh. It is definitely a writer’s film with such heart warming screenplay. The film is produced by the men behind AIB (Tanmay Bhat, Rohan Joshi, Ashish Shakya, Gursimran Khamba). Beautiful stories like these are rarely told!!
Go and watch this film even if you have to buy ZEE5 subscription only for this!!
