12th International Children's Film Festival Bangladesh 2019

My Best Friend's Shoes

Rammat Gammat (Gujarati)

India | 18:31 min | Drama | 2018 | Short Film (Live Action)

Rammat Gammat is a moving tale of two young boys from different backgrounds who bond over soccer until a new pair of shoes strains their friendship. It’s a simple story of complex characters, which will spark a discussion about merit vs money, poor vs privileged, class and caste, racial divisions and the role of friendship in it.

চলচ্চিত্রটির মূলত দুইজন বালককে নিয়ে যারা সমাজের ভিন্ন অংশের অন্তর্গত হলেও ফুটবল খেলার মাধ্যমে তাদের বন্ধুত্বের সূচনা হয়। কিন্তু একপর্যায়ে তাদের বন্ধুত্বে ফাটল ধরে একজোড়া জুতো নিয়ে। এই চলচ্চিত্রে খুবই সহজ ভাষায় সমাজের অসামঞ্জস্যতা তুলে ধরে হয়। জাত, ধর্ম, বর্ণ, ধনী-গরিবের মাঝে যেসব ব্যবধান আছে তা সেগুলো নিয়ে দর্শককে ভাবতে বাধ্য করবে।
