Till few days back, if you would have asked me about “Harshad Mehta”, I would have told you that he was a baddie. I would have told that he was involved in crores of scam related to stock market and shares. He amassed huge wealth at the cost of national interest etc.

Because this is what being shown by media at the time when harshad mehta was arrested.

Now if you also think on the similar lines, this movie will be an eye opener for you. It will show you a different perspective of what media showed it to us.


In Gafla, debutant director sameer hanchante tried to provide a different perspective of the harshad mehta scam. Though, the film claims that it is purely fictional, but once you start watching it, you can easily correlate it with what happened some 16 years back.

The movie tells the story of a middle class man who wants to step out of the box and make it big. He does achieve success at first but then becomes a victim of the scam only to return as the daredevil and stake everything in it all over again.

The movie is worth watching.

First of all I would say “A must to watch movie”

I liked it a lot. In fact there were moments in the movie when i had tears in my eyes.

This is the story of a small kid (Ishaan) who suffers from dyslexia (readablity disorder). He cannot read words. Letter seems dancing to him. But no body understands his problem. Not even his parents. Rather his dad feels that he doesnt want to study. He feels that the kid is stubborn and not willing to study at all. So he puts the kid in a boarding school. The teachers at the boarding school too do not understand his problem and he is always punished for not doing the class works/home works. This made the boy very introvert. He doesnt talk to anyone…silently bears the pain of the punishments by teachers. Then comes another art teacher at the school “Mr Aamir khan”. He is the one who understands Ishaan’s problem and helps him. Watch the entire movie to see how he helped the boy.

There is one song (“Meri Ma”) in the movie which starts when the kid is sent to the boarding school and his parents are leaving him there. In this song he is really speaking his heart out..and it is a complete master piece from Prasoon joshi (for his lyrics) and Shanker Ehsan loy (for the beautiful composition). Amazing song.

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin,
Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata, Hai Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata…Meri Maa

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe
Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Bhej Na Itna Door Mujhko Tu
Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Kya Itna Bura Hoon Main Maa ..
Kya Itna Bura ..Meri Maa

Jab Bhi Kabhi Papa Mujhe
Jo Zor Se Jhoola Jhulaate Hain Maa
Meri Nazar Dhoondhe Tujhe
Sochu Yahi Tu Aa Ke Thaamegi Maa

Unse Main Yeh Kehta Nahin
Par Main Seham Jaata Hoon Maa..
Chehre Pe Aane Deta Nahin
Dil Hi Dil Mein Ghabraata Hoon Maa..
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata Hai Naa Maa
Tujhe Sab Hai Pata … Meri Maa

Main Kabhi Batlata Nahin
Par Andhere Se Darta Hoon Main Maa
Yun To Main,Dikhlata Nahin
Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pataaa,,Meri Maa …..

Last but not the least, wonderful acting by darshil (the kid ishaan) and mind blowing direction by Aamir Khan.

A very inspiring talk
