plot

Yeh hai Bakrapur is a social satire set against the backdrop of rural India. A multi-layered film, it dwells, at the primary level, on the relationship between eight year old Zulfi Qureshi and his pet goat Shahrukh. It is also a hilarious take on the complex belief systems in our society and the conflicts that ensue thereon.

Verdict

“Yeh Hai Bakrapur is as understated satire with an engaging story. Although the second half falters, the genuine performances hold it together to warrant a watch.”

YE HAI BAKRAPUR reminds me of a time when we would debate the effacity of micro finance projects for women groups. It reminds me of other places, other times before SRK convinced us ke us me Rab dhikta hai-- when we would read about the Name of God appearing in tomato seeds, roti, farm animals. It may remind some of you who grew up watching the Babe franchise about a pig who escapes a dire fate by becoming a community hero.

In YE HAI BAKRAPUR a little boy's best friend, the family goat, is headed to the bakra mandi / animal market to pay off the family's loan. The young man about the small town ( played by the endearing Anushman Jha) helps the little boy save the goat from the block. How he does it, you have to watch the movie for that; but it sets about an interesting chain of events, some khayali pulao and a whole lot of chaos.
I loved Ye Hai Bakrapur for its small town politics, goat ( body) politics.. Hai re Kaaliya and Salma ka milan.. and its wry sense of humour. That its beautifully shot doesnt hurt either.
