Instead of the theatrical release, producers Vishnu Manohar and Prabhakar Shukla have decided to hold the first screening at this festival which is dedicated to children’s films from across the world. The film will be brought to theatres later.
Shukla says, “We have decided to push the theatrical release further after seeing the market reaction for recently released animation film Ramayan. Now we will be bringing the film through a different route. 3rd Global Film Festival at Noida’s focus is children’s films. We have many children’s film by international directors getting exposure through this festival. Amongst the Indian films, Baru-The Wonder Kid is Premiering while other two Indian entries are Mr. India and Blue Umbrella. It’s definitely a very good and appropriate platform for us.”
After the premiere at the 3rd Global Film Festival, which is showcasing many films from Japan, Russia, Iran, France, Italy, Spain etc, Baru- The Wonder Kid will move onto other International films festivals before it’s theatrical release.
Presented by Shri Vishnu Entertainment & Lemon N Yellow Productions and produced by Manohar and Shukla, Baru- The Wonder Kid is directed by Sachin Gote.
It is the story of a twelve year old orphan boy Baru and his journey to free his sister, Anannya, from the clutches of the Devil Prince- Zukayu.
