Director-producer Aanand L Rai took to his social networking site recently to praise the trailer of Eros International’s Trinity Pictures’ first franchise, Sniff!!!
Helmed by acclaimed director, Amole Gupte, of Taare Zameen Par, Hawaa Hawaai & Stanley Ka Dabba fame, the man reputed to spot talent in children is all set to launch his next discovery- Khushmeet Gill, who plays the 8-year-old wonder boy who acquires a superpower.
Khushmeet plays the lead protagonist, Sunny Gill, in this family entertainer that revolves around a young Sikh boy, who is a spy-in-the-making along with his curious gang of extraordinary cohorts.
Aanand L Rai tweeted, “Super fun, super innocence super smart super team @ErosNow #amolegupte #Ajitthakur #Trinity”.
The refreshing storyline has been welcomed with open arms and received huge appreciation by the film industry as well as the critics.
Praising the trailer, Firstpost had mentioned, “The Stanley Ka Dabba director, yet again, spells magic with tiny tots in this mystery/thriller children film based on the adventures of an eight-year-old detective Sunny Gill who has special olfactory superpowers.”
Bollywood Hungama: “Sniff!!! promises to be a smile through affair of a Sikh kid (played by Khushmeet Gill) who doesn’t have a pivotal sense of smell, only to emerge as country’s spy superhero once he gets special powers that make him rise above the ordinary. Guess there is a new ‘jasoos’ is town and goes by the name of Sunny instead of ‘Jagga’.”
The Quint: “Amol Gupte, who has delivered films like Taare Zameen Par and Stanley Ka Dabba is back with his latest film, Sniff. Coming from the same ilk, here’s another refreshing film centered around children. The trailer strikes just the right balance of comedy and sensitive story-telling.”
Scroll: “He cannot fly, nor can he fight. He even suffers from anosmia, or the inability to smell. But when a laboratory accident enhances eight-year-old Sunny Gill’s olfactory abilities, he begins to transform into a crime fighter.”
Written & Directed by Amole Gupte, ‘Sniff!!!’, a Trinity Pictures franchise, is scheduled to release on 25th August, 2017.
