CAST & CREW
Bubble Gum is the tale of Vedant, who is in the threshold of youth. Vedant is in 9th standard and is in a phase where he is no longer a kid but is not yet an adult. This is the phase of his first infatuation that feels like true love to him, his rivalry and how all these lead to him realizing actual meaning of life, love and relationship. This movie happens in Jamshedpur in 1980, an era where life was social on an account of face to face interaction and not on the internet or Facebook. Also children were found playing in grounds and not in front of a television.
The young actors show brilliant levels of acting. All the characters be it the brothers, or Rattan the official ‘Kabab Mein Haddi’ or Partho the mischief maker or the sweet Jenny have given terrific performances. The roles of parents were also enacted brilliantly.
This is a story with which everyone would relate to. The best part of this movie is that how effortlessly the director has executed this unusual tale in a way that can be relatable. Be it adults who would remember how their childhood crushes were or be it teenagers who would seek help for impressing their crushes, it is a movie for all. It also portrays that time without internet had its own charm.
It is a family film. It has the essence of the era where human relations were face to face and not on Facebook. It explains the phase we all go through and how it should be given a positive direction.
What’s not there?
It is not a romantic movie. If someone is expecting a romantic story of teenagers then this movie is not for you.
This movie is a complete entertainment package. Those who are planning to watch it won’t be disappointed.
