Don't we all have some great memories from good ol' school days? Well, KACCHA LIMBOO is a sheer nostalgia trip to relive them.
The director of BHEJA FRY, Sagar Ballary, traverses a new path by attempting a new genre (children) this time with KACCHA LIMBOO. Mind you, it's not a piece of cake to make a good children's film. It has to connect with the children as well as parents who come to watch the film with them. And KACCHA LIMBOO does that to a great extent.
The film traces the life of 13-year-old overweight teen Shambhu (Taher Sutterwala). Like every other kid of his age, he loves his PS2, gets attracted to girls and lands in trouble every now and then. He is desperately trying to fit in and be a part of a group, comprising of his school mates. He even upsets PP, his sole good friend for the group. But the school mates consider him to be a loser and give him no bhaav.
