The Blue Umbrella – movie review / storyline


‘The Blue Umbrella’ is a heart-warming adaptation of the beloved novella of the same name by Ruskin Bond. It is a film about desire, about the zealous attempt to fulfill it and finally its conquest.

The story unfurls with the discovery of a vibrant blue umbrella by Biniya (Shreya Sharma), an eleven-year-old girl from an idyllic mountain village in North India. She has never seen anything more striking and beautiful.

Neither has Nandkishore Khatri (Pankaj Kapoor).

Nandkishore Khatri runs a small tea stall in the village. He is a miserly old man who has a fondness for pickles and swindling kids off their little possessions. Nandkishore is smitten helplessly by the beauty of the umbrella and goes to remarkable lengths to acquire the Blue Umbrella but fails miserably. He has given up all hope and declares that he will forsake it and move on…

However Nandkishore is not the only one to covet the umbrella. The umbrella’s arrival disturbs the tranquility and harmony of the village. Biniya’s secret weapon gives her an enviable power over the small town, as the umbrella assumes mythical status.

One fine day the umbrella goes missing! The villagers are sympathetic to her misery but are convinced that Biniya’s carelessness has resulted in the loss. Alone and betrayed Biniya decides to take matters into her own hands.

What follows is a journey of Biniya and Nandkishore to a discovery, which is bitter sweet and wisdom far beyond the Blue Umbrella. ‘The Blue Umbrella’ is a metaphorical tale yet also contemporary. It questions the basic premise of mankind’s quest for superiority over others. It also raises pertinent questions on the concept of material happiness and futility of the whole process.

The soundtrack is more like a soothing background noise with not much in it in way of songs .. but the movies storyline and peformance of actors surely more than make up for it
