Top 5 Children Movies of Bollywood
Gone are the times when movies in Bollywood were made for adults and with adult actors only. Though they could be watched with and by children, the latter rarely were the focus of attention in the movies or got to act in them. Such movies are still being made but the times have changed. Now the children ‘army’ is taking over the Indian screen, thanks to the people who saw great acting talent in them and saw the need of children entertainment in Bollywood! The children are now involved in making movies at par with those by adult actors, and producing outstanding stars. Such movies, though, are still a handful!
5. Mr. India
Mr. India, directed by Shekhar Kapoor, is one of the finest movie for children. It is the first science fiction film enabling children to think creatively. The script is original. The children who acted in this movie were very natural in their role and did an excellent job. Anil Kapoor, as Shekhar Bahiya, gets the scientific gadget of his father which makes a person disappear unless he wears red clothes. The film is so grasping that many people, including children have watched it several times, as much as 30-40 times.
Krrish, directed by Rakesh Roshan, puts self confidence in children. It’s a make-believe movie. Krrish, short form of ‘Krishna’, is the modern name of a village boy (Hrithik Roshan) who has super power abilities since his birth with which he tries to fight against the rogues who had kept his father (Hrithik himself) in captivity. This movie has also attracted long hours of watching by its fans.
3. Taare Zameen Par
Taare Zameen Par, directed by Aamir Khan, is about an 8-year old boy, Ishaan, who is excellent in the subject of art but does not perform well in other subjects.
