Kiddie films, aimed at kids between 6 and 60, are slowly making inroads in Bollywood. HARI PUTTAR - A COMEDY OF TERRORS is the newest entrant in this family.
Now let's set the record straight. HARI PUTTAR - A COMEDY OF TERRORS is not remotely inspired by HARRY POTTER, but it actually borrows from HOME ALONE. Unfortunately, directors Rajesh Bajaj and Lucky Kohli make a complete mess of what could've been a great kiddie fare.
Seriously, what were the directors thinking when they okayed this apology of a script? The directors seem completely clueless about how smart today's kids are. And the kind of stuff they have an access to [television, cinema, games]. They've witnessed far better stuff than what's dished out in this misadventure.
