The writer of such marvelous films as SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER, I AM KALAM and PAAN SINGH TOMAR is back with another unusual title, BABLOO HAPPY HAI. This time he is once again working with his I AM KALAM team.
When we caught up with the erudite and extremely humble and simple writer, and asked him to decipher the title as well as the film, he told us, ''Actually I had scripted BABLOO HAPPY HAI a while back but as the subject is as relevant today as it was then, Madhab and me decided to bring it later. And so here it is! Basically, it is a coming-of-age story of the youths.''
Please elaborate... and Sanjay continues, ''See, when you are in love and to be specific during the courtship days, everything is hunky-dory, but when the same relationship turns into marriage even the smallest things lead to arguments. For example, the objections from the wife can be as silly as -Why is this pillow cover so bright? Why have you put up such atrocious coloured curtains etc etc. And then one thinks and even says at times- Arre, when you used to come and meet me from the hostel all these colors/things used to look very nice. What has happened now! At times the better half will say, 'Why do you spend so much time with your friends? 'And these are the same friends who helped in the marriage against all oppositions and odds. To sum it up, one learns it the hard way that matrimony has different commitments, unlike the courtship days. One has to compromise and become practical about so many things that a person never thought would ever crop up in life.''
Interesting and identifiable, one has to admit. And we are sure that the audience too will say the same when the next offering from the I AM KALAM team, BABLOO HAPPY HAI, releases all over on 7th February.
