When did you last witness a Children Detective/Adventure Film in Hindi?
It will be really hard to think of one, except MAKDEE in the last few decades to be honest.

Recalling the lost world, the arrival of numerous TV channels in the 90s and digital revolution of internet post 2000 completely overshadowed the teenage life deeply connected with comics and short detective novels of fictional characters like Rajan-Iqbal, Ram-Rahim, Babloo, Inspector Manoj and many more. Though a few serials like Ek Do Teen Chaar and Kiley Ka Rahsaya were also aired by Doordarshan as children adventure series in those particular years. But comics were certainly the most beloved friends of all kids and teenagers before the mid-90s and that’s also because we didn’t have any Famous Five, Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew kind of cult characters in Hindi storybooks/literature giving you the real picture.
Can't say how many young boys and girls are addicted to such books in the present era. (Not many I guess!) But its really strange that the genre of 'Children Detective/Adventure Films' was never really exploited in Hindi Cinema except a couple of decent attempts coming at considerably long intervals in the past decades.
Thankfully writer-director Amole Gupte fills up the void and comes up with SNIFF,  that makes you feel the nostalgia and takes you back in that world revolving around a kid detective, who accidentally gets an extraordinary power of smelling the crime and the criminals in his close surroundings. The film isn’t great in terms of perfection and logical reasoning required in a detective or mystery movie having a strictly average second half. But it’s worth giving a chance indeed and might inspire the young ones to explore more similar stuff choosing from the wide range of books available online.
Frankly SNIFF is sure to be taken off from the theaters within the first week itself due to the lack of audience. So do make a note and watch it together with the kids, the moment its available on an online portal soon in the coming weeks.
Rating : 3 / 5
