The Belwandis immediately like them for his honesty and praise him. Later, Bokya becomes their helper of sorts. He takes care of them and tries to remove their loneliness. He convinces his brother, who is also an actor, to act as though he is his grandson. He gives them happiness and gets a lot of praises from everyone. In their vacations, Bokya and his friends do a very noble deed of teaching poor children. They teach them songs, language, play with them, celebrate their birthdays and give them immense happiness. He plans a trip to Khandala with all of them. He plays a hero by averting a major accident. Later on he is awarded with lots of trophies from the Government and other institutions.
This film wins hearts. All the actors have done an amazing job. The story and screenplay of the film really makes us enjoy every bit of the film. It makes us laugh and cry at the same time. A must watch film for every kid.
After a long time, a Marathi film of such sensitive issue for kids is been produced. Hats off to Dilip Prabhavalkar and others for this amazing feat.
