Abi (Ahbi), a schoolboy, leads a lonely life as his globetrotting parents have no time for him. But when his father's guardian Sun Sun (Jamali Shadat) visits, Abi learns how it feels to have a family.
It is not everyday that one comes across a movie that is both short and sweet. Sun Sun Thatha is just that, and all in the right proportions. Set in Malaysia, the movie portrays the void in Abi's life as his parents are caught up in a rat race, where is making money is all they care for. The boy lives mostly on junk food, and cartoons bring all the laughs in his life.
The movie is a lesson on child psychology. It tells you how a child thinks and acts in particular circumstances. The scene where the boy thinks Sun Sun is dead when actually he has fallen asleep explains it well. Although Abhi's acting could have done with some polishing, the story makes his character endearing and makes you hope he had a better life. In his fifth movie as director, Nasser's Sun Sun Thatha is a message for parents who get little time to spend with their children. Like Mr. Sun Sun says, money can buy you what you need, but the joy of watching your child grow up is much more than what money can buy.
The character of the lovable grandfather Sun Sun is played by popular Malaysian comedian Jamali Shadat, who brings out all the right emotions. As long as he's on screen, you are assured of a laugh with every other dialogue. Nasser plays the role of Abi's ever-busy dad effortlessly.
Music is by R Prabhar, who gives us two good melodies that work well in the movie. The camera work by Segar Varadhan is okay, but for the output is not up to the mark. The dubbing too comes in the way of the viewing experience, with little synchronization between lip movement and audio track. But it's the spirit of the movie that makes you enjoy it.
Sun Sun Thatha is a good effort but a bit more polishing could have made it a much better experience.
