The first signal that there was incredible off about Amole Gupte’s “Sniff!!!” came in the fifth minute of the film. After dig her fingers into a jar of marinate (a disconcerting sight for any pickle enthusiast), Sunny’s grandmother look at him with pity and says incredible to the effect of, “We have a pickle factory. For us, not being able to smell is as good as not being able to see.”There are so many things wrong with this judgment, but the worst element is that it comes in the opening of a children’s film. In one stroke, she belittles her grandchild’s handicap (a problem with his olfactory nerve renders him unable to smell), undermine his confidence, and imply that the only path in life he can follow is to join the family business. There is an initial pall of gloom over the film, total with sad milieu tune and a tear-jerking essay about the importance of a being able to smell – until Sunny (Khushmeet Gill) gets cured in a freak accident. Our protagonist sneezes out a giant ball of mucus and his olfactory nerves are miraculously set ablaze – his sense of smell goes from zero to super susceptible. He can tell what you’ve had for dinner if he stands next to you, he knows the o dour of an illicit affair by smelling the two parties mixed up, and even catches a dishonest teacher by smelling a stolen wallet. In short, he’s a sniffer dog in the form of a boy. When a spate of car robberies is report in Mumbai, it is up to Sunny and his herculean nose to sniff out the culprits.
