The Blue Umbrella Reviews:

Who should have thought that an umbrella would turn out to be one of the most compelling characters seen on the cinema screen in 2007? But then, when the filmmaker in question is a master craftsman named Vishal Bhardwaj, cute much anything is possible. The melody director turned filmmaker is a force to reckon with- one of the finest directors seen in a long time- churning out masterpieces with alarming versatility and consistency. This boy simply does not cease to amaze, and The Blue Umbrella is yet other stunning movie from him- and personally, my favourite Vishal Bhardwaj movie so far.Words do not suffice to describe the nice beauty, simplicity and purity of this movie, based on the famous novella of the same name by Ruskin Bond. But Vishal Bhardwaj expectedly goes much, much beyond the source material and takes the storyline to an altogether various level. The umbrella comes to life in this charming fable, symbolizing so much- from love and beauty to desire and materialistic evil.The Blue Umbrella is a charming story, but it is also a strong movie exploring multiple themes of greed, innocence, ostracism and loss. Stunningly shot by Sachin K Krishn in the locales of Himachal Pradesh, the movie is also breathtaking lovely, and the umbrella in all its splendor, set in contrast vs the mountain scenery- green in summer and stark white is winter- is a sight to behold.The writing and dialogues are trademark Bhardwaj- witty, sharp and humorous, with even a cheeky reference to Quentin Tarantino playfully thrown in- Bhardwaj, of course, is a large fanatic of the Pulp Fiction director. And the songs in the movie hark back to the days of Lakdi Ki Kaathi- as Vishal shows yet again how brilliant he is with children's songs, with Gulzar's joyful lyrics perfectly complimenting his tunes.But what's really wonderful about the movie is the sheer spirit of humanity that pervades and shines through the whole film. It is indeed ironical that the movie that has been called the 'best children's film' at the recently announced National awards is now not a kiddie flick at all. But The Blue Umbrella can create you feel like being a kid all over again- rather like Nand Kishore in the film, who despite all his vices, still retains the kid in him.Vishal Bhardwaj has an nice knack for extracting nice work from kid actors, and débutante actress Shreya is yet other nice search after Makdee's Shweta Prasad. The role of Biniya does not demand histrionics, but Shreya shows remarkable resilience and maturity, testing Biniya confidently and holding her own even before the veteran actor alongside her in the film.The actor I talk of is of course, Pankaj Kapur- a horribly underrated actor, and a favourite with Bhardwaj- who has been giving powerhouse performances one after the another of late- whether it be in Maqbool or the more newest Dharm. Pankaj Kapur plays Nand Kishore with such obvious delight, watching him in this movie is pleasure beyond words. One of the most riveting and memorable characters he has played, this undoubtedly is the finest performance I have seen in the films this year.In fact, Pankaj Kapur is so nice in this film, he almost brought tears to my eyes. Watch it- because performances like these don't come once too often. And because movies like these do not happen each another Friday....unless you wish to wait for Vishal Bhardwaj's next film. I, for one, now can't wait.


Magnificent Performances, panoramic cinematography, perfect storytelling and made with the heart. Like all another Vishal films this one also has all the above qualities, but this film has one thing which takes it ahead form all his earlier flicks and that is the method it treats humans and their emotions. Vishal turns the very easy storyline to the storyline of humanity and simplicity remains as it is.How an Blue Umbrella becomes center of two lives and how the two dealt with this. These two characters are Binya and Nand Kishore, played by introducing kid artist Shreya and heavily experienced Pankaj Kapur. Pankaj Kapur lived the hero of Nand Kishore in the movie. This was surely the greatest performance by him. His dialog delivery , accent , body language all was so real.I think Blue Umbrella is not only meant for kids but for everyone who wish to see nice movies. Vishal has created the films which are truly across boundaries and across ages.surely a 10/10.


Vishal Bharadwaj has evolved in such a unbelievable Director with poetic sensibilities and characteristics of becoming world's nice directors.Blue Umbrella is a screen ver of Ruskin Bond's short storyline Blue Umbrella. It is about a young woman Binya (Shriya) who trades her superstitious lucky charm of bear nails in return of a Japanese Blue Umbrella with tourists. Immediately she becomes a center of attraction of the villagers. A tiny trader Nandakishore (Pankaj Kapoor) eyes of the Blue Umbrella and tries all methods of receive the umbrella. When Binya's umbrella is stolen – the police raid Nandakishore's shop. Facing this humiliation and to present that he too can afford or purchase an umbrella, Nandakishore orders a related Japanese Red Umbrella. Once the Red Umbrella comes, he gains back popularity and respect from everyone in the village. During a wrestling bout where he is the chief guest, it rains and the Red Umbrella begins loosing out color and shows that it was the Blue Umbrella. The villagers decide to boycott Nandakishore and outcast him from the village. Nobody talks with him, nobody buys anything from his shop. He faces poverty and humiliation again. But this time it teaches him a lesson of life. Once when Binya forgets her umbrella at his shop, he understand the miseries that the Blue Umbrella caused him and honestly goes back to return the umbrella to Binya. But Binya shows grace and generosity by telling that the Blue Umbrella does not belong to her. The film ends there… I applaud this film onlybecause of the intention of nice directors to create pure and pretty cinema. Can you ever think and imagine Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese or Frank Miller making a children's movie? And that makes them less mortals. The versatility of nice directors is the tons they handle. Tarantino, Scorsese and Millers are one dimensional in that sense and can not go beyond gory, blood and violence and that is were their creativity is so cornered and restrictive. That is why hats off to Vishal to have guts to venture into fresh medium and showcase that irrespective of whatever themes; he remains a nice director.Vishal selects one of the most evolved and brilliant actors in newest times – Pankaj Kapoor who pours such a life in the hero of Nandakishore that it is difficult to trust this is a role depicted by an actor. He is too brilliant! Third time nice – Maqbool, Dharm and Blue Umbrella. The woman Binya is nice – but only to the director's lessons; and does not leave a lasting impression as the Makdee woman Swehta Prasad.The melody is good, cinematography brilliant, locale of North Indian Himalayan ranges superb. All in all a nice children's movie. It has the purity of cinema and showcases the goodness of human spirit. Teaches tiny but necessary lessons of life.(Stars 7.75 out of 10)
