Chintu Ka Birthday Zee5 Review – War, from the eyes of innocent children. What world are we leaving for them?

Chintu Ka Birthday Full Movie is a story from the point of view of a 6-year-old child. The innocence of the boy, Chintu is reflected through his simplified approach towards the complex problems faced by his dwelling place, Baghdad in Iraq. Chintu’s father was a salesman of water purifiers working in Bihar (India) and his mother was a homemaker.

When the owner of the company in which Chintu’s father worked decided to stand by the people of Iraq during the water scarcity issue of the country, Madan Tiwari (Chintu’s father) was sent there and soon after that his wife Sudha, daughter Lakshmi and son Chintu were sent too, accompanied by Sudha’s mother (Chintu and Lakshmi’s Nani).

But when the “American Uncle” of Chintu sent the US-led allied forces to Iraq right before Chintu Ka Birthday AIB, the worst unfolds for his family. The boy has dreams of celebrating his birthday with pomp and grandeur. But every year, something or the other comes in the way.

Things become tough for the illegal immigrants of Iraq and hence Chintu’s family is unable to return back to their homeland. Now and then, situations started getting out of hand, and the story begins when Chintu is shown to get worried as his current birthday (2004) is also getting ruined because of difficult circumstances everywhere in the city, starting from schools to bakery shops.

On the eve of Chintu Ka Birthday (Zee5), his family witnesses an American siege at his home, in war-torn Iraq.  His whole family is suspected to be supporting the insurgents in Iraq, and all hell breaks loose as the Indian Family is practically taken hostage on foreign land, by a yet foreign Army, USA.  It is the father’s resolve to celebrate Chintu Ka Birthday peacefully and happily, together, as a family. And so he goes against all odds to make that happen.

Overall, Chintu Ka Birthday Online is a film with a simple concept, bold performances and of course, marvellous execution.


While most of the scripts of films deal with exceptions and uniqueness, the script of Chintu Ka Birthday Zee5 speaks of generalisation. The backdrop of the story is based in Iraq. It is needless to say that the choice of location automatically boosts up the emotional angle of the viewers.

But when the audience thinks of getting a normal vision of war struck country, things begin to differ with the approach of simplicity and innocence when the window of view becomes the glasses of a child. The script has the right amount of ingredients that was required without any use of words that could have led to over manifestation of the characters.


Vinay Pathak and Tillotama Shome made a great couple throughout the movie. The real chemistry of between a husband and wife in such a situation is brought about in a very good way. Seema Pahwa’s benevolence as an ideal Nani will not only melt hearts but also add to the subtle humour reflected in the film. And the star of the show, Vedant Chibber did an excellent job as the central character Chintu of the film.

Not only his screen presence, but his narration and expressive eyes shall surely steal the heart of every viewer who love children. When a kid delineates a problem, he or she does so with such an ease and a different simplified logic, that almost nothing on earth can beat that logic at times, at their level. And the most beautiful part is they don’t realise what great things they are talking about. This lack of over consciousness is the key element of Chintu’s character and hence portrayed in the most beautiful way by Vedant.


Background scores also matched well with the situations of the film. Naren Chandavarkar and Benedict Taylor made quite a good team in bringing out the musical flavour of the film. 

Cinematography, Special Effects & Editing:

In a film like Chintu Ka Birthday full movie, cinematography could have been given a little more importance than it actually got. With Siddharth Diwan as the DOP, there was an excellent implementation of special effects with animated graphics. Editing by Charu Shree Roy also gelled well with the cinematography.


Devanshu Kumar and Satyanshu Singh have worked really hard for the direction of the Zee5 originals production Chintu Ka Birthday Online. But there were creases—the multi-lingual approach to film added to the realistic touch undoubtedly, but for people who are not at all associated with Arabic, it was difficult to grasp the substance of the situation.

However, the delectable performance and cosy warmth of the film covered up all such little crevices. Characterisation was wonderfully done. The helplessness of the family, the silent grief of a 6-year-old—nothing could have been portrayed better and in such a realistic way. In other words, Chintu Ka Birthday Zee5 will really make you remember that one birthday in childhood which you could not celebrate as you wished!

Chintu Ka Birthday Full Movie will be available on Zee5 on June 5, 2020.
