BUGBEAR cover image
Bugbear is an amazing production from India that is entirely in another language (Marathi).

The story is about a small Indian boy who is afraid of a strange creature on the wall. After his mother realizes what is going on, she finds a way for him to overcome this fear.

The storyline is very interesting and engaging and has some good points. The camera work is very good, although some scenes are quite dark and difficult to see the details. It has many innovated camera angles. The location is someplace in India and we get to observe the life of a mother and her young son in a realistic way. The background music works in setting the mood of the storyline. The child develops as he overcomes his fear. The relationship between the mother and her young son is so loving and thoughtful. We see how much she loves him by the care she gives him.

The message is to not let your fear control you and find a way to resolve that fear. There is a scene when the mother is bathing the little boy where we see his private parts and some people may have issues with that.

I give Bugbear 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Avalon N. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST!
