I recommend this movie for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival because it has an appealing message about how a mom indirectly guides her daughter towards being independent and wonderfully charming actors. The movie flows well with main character, Disha's mom, communicating with her through sticky notes to guide her along. The movie quickly shows Disha becoming more independent. It's also little confusing in some aspects, such as the ending. The protagonist's acting is very realistic. Disha is quite adorable. Also, the background music is quite appropriate and adds greatly to the story. A child will enjoy the movie's theme about the mom continuously guiding her daughter through day to day tasks and helping her to be more independent. The vocabulary and concepts are suitable for its target audience. I enjoyed the camerawork and the scenes of everyday life in India. Disha's costume, whether it's her school uniform or dress all look appropriate. I think this makes a wonderful addition to any youth or family film festival that wants to examine childhood and international families. It is shot in India, in English and is very easy to understand. I recommend this for ages of 6 to 12 and give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Arjun N., KIDS FIRST!

One afternoon, Disha, a vivacious 10 year old, comes home from school. She discovers her mother's new game and is very excited about it. Inquisitive and engrossed in her mother's hand written notes, Disha's task is simply to follow the instructions, have fun and do every activity independently. What challenges are in store for Disha?
