” Bachpan is about a Child Labour and the challenges that he has to face in his day to day life.
The movie begins with him walking through different locations as a part of his daily commute.( the locations being a School, a playground , footpath, garden , entertainment zone for kids etc.) This has been an effort to show that a child of his age who should be a part of these experiences, unlike other children , can only see them and not be a part of it as he is compelled to earn his livelihood .
Further he meets different kinds of people while selling his products . Some receive him well, some don’t while some taunt at his condition . His happiness as a ‘child’ is hampered due to child labour . He experiences the ‘joy of being a child’ rarely or none at all. He has no human identity ,no protection, no rights as a child and is named ‘Gutkha’ due to his profession. The name here (gutkha ) has been specifically taken as a metaphor to compare the harsh reality of this child’s life to that of a cancer causing substance ‘Gutkha’. “ – Synopsis by Tuhinkumar Chakraborty
