BEGGARS cover image
This fictionalized film follows the life story of a young Indian boy trying to get food to eat. Although the characters are made up, the story is a true one about life for boys such as these who live in poverty. The lesson learned by the younger boy is to do something useful for others and get paid rather than simply beg. It's a life changing moment for the younger boy who thrives under the tutelage of the older one and is no longer starving. I recommend this film for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival because it has a great lesson about working hard rather than beg. The scenes are very realistic as they show the life of a street beggar. We see how a stranger helps the young beggar to understand that you need to serve others in order to earn food or money legitimately. The movie starts out sad when we see the beggar boy as very hungry and no one will give him food. Later, he is saved by another boy who shows him how to work hard at small jobs to earn money or food. The most appealing part about the film is the moral of the story. I think children will relate to it because the primary characters are children. The movie flows well. The vocabulary and concepts are suitable for its intended age. The sound, camerawork, sets and locations are all done well and appropriate to the story. I recommend it for ages 5 to 18 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Arjun N., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
