Two kids from a slum are left on their own after their aunt passes away. They both do their best to make ends meet.
Straight up, 'Cinderella' is a heart-warming film revolving around a brother's struggle to feed himself and his little sister and keep a promise that he's made to her.
The film sees Askya (Rupesh) and Rani (Yashaswi) as the young brother and sister. Their aunt has put Rani's responsibility on Askya and soon breathes her last. Now it is upon Askya to make Rani feel like a princess, with whatever little he can do for her but Rani takes fancy to a specific Cinderella doll that she sees at a gift store. Unable to afford it then, Askya decides to buy the doll some day with his hard-earned money. He takes up odd jobs like selling books at traffic signals, collecting plastic bottles and more but with each job, a new hurdle pops up in front of him. The determined kid never gives up though.
Director Kiran Nakti holds a regular activity name Abhinay Katta and is known to groom good actors. This is evident from his star cast. While there are known faces in the film, it is the two lead youngsters who steal the show with their effortless acting, especially Rupesh. From the production point of view, the film is sound but has loose ends and repetition. The viewer is bombarded with the little girl's obsession with the doll; something that is unnecessary because after a few times, you gets the idea.
As said before, 'Cinderella' is a heart-warming tale of sibling love and responsibility but a better execution could've helped the film.
