Caution: Expect the unexpected. If you happen to have watched the trailer for Oli Ki Suki and are going to the movie theatre thinking this is a YA film with cricket as its premise, then you are absolutely wrong.

The film is not about cricket or achieving something out of India’s most popular sport/pastime. This one here is a social film with a message. It walks the same path that was covered by last year's 'Half Ticket'; children from economically backward class earning money, but the problem is that it’s too preachy and in your face.

A couple of kids from a slum in Pune love to play cricket. They are helped by a young social worker Radhika Deshpande (Tejashri Pradhan) who wants to channel their energy into good things. Unlike 'Half Ticket’s pizza as a prize, the children here want to raise money to help their friend Kiran aka Hadkya’s (Chinmay Sant) mother get cancer treatment.

Just like you, we thought the same. How can a group of kids work hard enough to collect such a huge amount? Individually each one contributes, by running an anda-bhurji stall, supplying leftover vegetables to a milkman for his cattle, working as a dabbawala, a junior artiste in a film, as well as earning money by selling articles made from waste. But even with a huge dose of suspension of disbelief, the amount is impossible to raise. The cause is indeed noble, but is it realistic, is what we’d like to ask director-writer Anand Gokhale.

The children are wonderful and quite natural in front of the camera, given that most of them are doing this for the first time. However, Pradhan does a poor execution of sincere social worker, and ends up sounding preachy, whiny and plastic. Rest of the established actors are mere caricatures of their characters, including a dying mother, an angry disabled father, as well as a vengeful police inspector. Skip this one.
