With big star cast of Kishor Kadam, Sai Tamhankar, Prathamesh Parab, Shashwati Pimplikar, Madan Devdhar, Bhagyashree Shankpal, Rohit Phalke, Subodh Bhave, Amruta Subhash, Avinash Narkar, Vishakha Subhedar, Anand Ingale, Satish Tare and Supriya Pathare, BP explores the growing need of communication with the children on sex education before they are entrapped by the world of X-rated content.
Through Mumbai Film Company and Viva InEn, producers Riteish Deshmukh and Uttung Thakur mark their debut as producers in the Marathi film world with BP (Balak Palak).
“For me the script of the film, the content and the treatment attracted me to the project. It was a story that I believed needed a stronger and a wider audience. It is a story with universal appeal and is a reality across our country and hence language can never be a barrier. I’m glad to be associated with a story like BP and hope that people relate, identify and enjoy the film,” said producer Riteish Deshmukh.
Producer Uttung Thakur says, “BP aims to kick off a debate on healthy, open communication between parents and their kids. Viva InEn will bring movies based on interesting subjects in the future along with its foray in mainstream Bollywood arena. It is a fun filled drama that will help parents to realize how important it is to communicate transparently with your child.”
Director Ravi Jadhav, a graphic designer and copy writer, who has won innumerable awards for his clutter breaking advertising work, continues his quest for experimental subjects and challenges. “BP was very challenging subject for me. Often parents avoid talking to kids. Answering all questions posed by our kids is not something we happily do. Sometimes, we reply with a slap, sometimes, with a shout. And most of the times we avoid the question all together. BP is a fun filled drama that will help parents to realize how important it is to communicate transparently with your child. It was tough to handle as a director but fun to watch as an audience,” explains Jadhav.
Another highlight of BP is the musical debut in Marathi by Bollywood’s hottest Jodi Vishal-Shekhar. The duo’s song karuya ata kalla and Haravali pakhare are all set to be chart-buster in Marathi. After giving mega hits like Om Shanti Om and Dirty picture’s music, now Vishal –Shekhar duo is all set to rock Marathi film music.
The movie dwells on the subject of sex education and focuses how very few parents are keen to discuss the sensitive subject with their kids. Teen queries on this subject are often dealt with a slap or a shout. BP is about four teenage friends (Avya, Bhagya, Chiu and Dolly), who over hear that, their friend Jyotitai, a resident of their colony, has left their colony, as she has brought disgrace to her family.
Having received unsatisfactory explanations from their parents for Jyoti tai’s exit, the four take up the challenge to find out what her disgraceful act was. In this journey to discover, they end-up bonding with their over matured school mate Vishu, the guiding star for the foursome, who informs them about the world of blue movies. He feels, one has to read, watch and if need be, perform to understand the true meaning life (read sex).
