The Blue Umbrella

Little Biniya chances up on a beautiful blue umbrella whistle wandering around the mountains sorrounding her village. The umbreall is soon coveted by many of the village folk. When it suddenly vanishes, Biniya suspects the curmudgeon tea stall owner, Nandakishore (Pankaj Kapur). Based on a Ruskin Bond story, the film is allegorical of human life and existence. A well taken film that somehow lacked soul in spite of some great acting from Kapur.

Rating: * +
