Shot Boot Three, directed by Arun Vaidyanathan (Achchamundu Achchamundu 2009), is a rare Tamil film made for kids. It is a lighthearted story about three kids searching for their lost dog, told from the kids’ perspective. The adults play a supporting role, and the kids are the real stars of the show. The film is simple and straightforward, and kids will love it, while adults may find it slow and uneventful. There is no deep meaning or theme to the film, but it is still a fun and enjoyable watch. Gets a Raw from Mangoidiots.
Venkat Prabhu and Sneha are busy IT professionals with little time for their 12-year-old son, Kailash. Kailash’s close friends, Pallavi and Ballu, help him get a dog, and the three kids quickly fall in love with it. But one day, the dog goes missing, and the kids must embark on a little adventure outside the gates of their gated community to find it. Yogi Babu plays a small role in the film, but it’s the three kids who are the real stars. They all deliver excellent performances, especially the two boys.
I liked the quote “Beware of Humans” displayed in a scene on a dog kennel.
If you have kids, take them to see Shot Boot Three. It’s a fun and heartwarming film that the whole family will enjoy. And it’s important to support films like this, which are made specifically for kids.
