Next time we meet Bheem, would love to gift him a box full of Laddoos! It was fun meeting Chhota Bheem at Dholakpur with my son yesterday! Sonny and his cousin had fun seeing Bheem dance to a remixed ‘Bheeeeeeeem song’. The acrobatics by the African team was simply mindblowing, as was the lazer show. The show was such a hit that me and V loved being with the kids, and we were cheering Bheem & his team!🙂 Thanks to POGO for giving us MAX fun at Koramangala Indoor stadium! Needless to say, V had won two free Passes for this event!😉 We really enjoyed it when the guy on stilts carried N! Height of excitement? Maybe!

It is difficult to exactly say when this fellow entered our lives. He first befriended my sonny, and then my better half…and finally me. Chhota Bheem entered into my son’s life sometime in 2008. N was then going to Kidzee. After coming back, he would be eating fruits while Bheem would be eating laddoos! Hearing V hum the ‘Chhota Bheem song’, I felt I was missing the action. I immediately got hooked.

A quick look at the starcast:

Bheem: Bheem is an adventurous and fun-loving 9-year-old who is gifted with extraordinary strength. Bheem loves food and  has a certain craving for laddoos, which in fact, give him a surge of energy and make him even stronger than he normally is.

Chutki: Chutki is a seven -year-old girl. She is Bheem’s closest friend, and assists Bheem on their adventures.

Raju: Raju is a cute and courageous five-year-old, whose role model is Bheem.

Kalia: Kalia is a 11 year old bully. He is also very greedy and tries to become rich by cheating. Kalia has two silly followers, Dholu and Bholu, who sometimes help him in his plans and at other times completely abandon him.

Jaggu: Jaggu is a talking monkey. Jaggu has his own special way of solving problems, using tricks and his amazing sense of humour.

Dholu and Bholu: Dholu and Bholu are identical twins and followers of Kalia Pahelwan. Though they are not strong themselves, they bask in Kalia’s strength and are arrogant with the other kids.

Kichak: Kichak is a wrestler from Pehelwanpur. He is jealous of Bheem, since Bheem is more popular than he is.

Raja Indraverma: The King of Dholakpur is Raja Indraverma. Though a valiant warrior, he is also hinted to be a coward at times, as he relies on Bheem for every crisis in the kingdom.

Princess Indumati: Raja Indraverma’s daughter is Indumati. She is a nice, caring princess. She also won the trophy along with Chutki in the episode “Girls versus Girls”.

Daku Mangal Singh: Mangal Singh is a daku (dacoit) who used to terrorize Dholakpur when he was free.

Floating Dhooni Baba: Dhooni Baba is a sage who lives in a cave. He has a body smeared with ash and seen meditating floating in the air.

Tun-Tun Mausi: Tun-Tun is the mother of Chutki. She owns a laddoo shop where she sells yummy laddoos that Bheem so much loves to eat all the time.

Professor Dhoom Ke Too: An Inventor. He often ends up getting problems with his Inventions, like getting his inventions stolen or malfunctioning.

Shivani: Bheem’s foster sister is Shivani. She lives in Pehelwanpur and a runs a dhaba there named “Shivani ka Dhaba”.

***

Ususally, boys and girls watch separate cartoons… but Chhota Bheem has hooked them all! The way kids followed He-Man a quarter century ago, kids now follow Chhota Bheem! In fact, all three of us love watching Bheem and his team beat up enemies who come to Dholakpur from far and wide.

Aside: I love it when V mimics every character from Chhota Bheem! She’s simply too good at it!
