Amidst the hustle-bustle of the concrete jungle of a sprawling city, two children go on a quest to find ‘their’ missing sparrow. This film Gubbacchigalu (Sparrows) takes us with the children – Ila and Anirudha – on their journey as they pursue the elusive sparrow. They set off from home with a guilt-ridden conscience that they may have been responsible for the sparrow’s disappearance. But it is their innocence and curiosity that take them on a trail of learning and discovery as they arrive at unusual places and meet unusual people. Everyone they meet says that sparrows are around but are they really there? Unable to find even a single sparrow in sight, the children’s anxiety and guilt only grows after each encounter. Do the children finally find the sparrow? The once ubiquitous sparrow is now almost an extinct species. This movie brings into sharp relief the realities of urban life, curious young minds and a dwindling biodiversity.
