Romance

A playful coming-of-age story that gently explores the themes of growing up, loss of innocence and the intimate yet aloof nature of upstairs-downstairs relationships. It is a different time. Sridevi rules the box office and Kapil Dev is yet to retire. Geetha, elevenish, is off for the annual family vacation in Kerala and is looking forward to all the fun with her cousins , visits to the beach and trips to the market to buy glass bangles and kites and shuttlecocks, evenings in the veranda listening to her grandfather's ridiculous ghost stories which he swears are all true, marathon card games and ferocious boys-versus-girls battles with the bristles of brooms made from coconut fibre
But as the summer unfolds, Geetha finds herself spending more time instead at the back of the house with the free-spirited cook, the hypochondriac cleaner, the virile gardener, a cheeky helper girl and Babu, son of Koovait Kannan, the bumbling plumber who made good. Babu's family is immersed in the wedding preparations for Babu's sister, who is marrying the most eligible bachelor in the neighbourhood Constable Venu, an expert thrasher of suspects and son of that wealthy black-marketer of supplies, Ration Raaman. But Babu’s mind is otherwise occupied. With thoughts of a face as rounded as a Malgova mango of an oiled plait as thick as the ropes used to tie the fishing boats, of eyes that sparkle like the sea on a sunlit morn. As Geetha and Babu's closely linked but widely divergent lives intersect, both are about to lose some of the blissful ignorance and innocence of childhood. Charmingly quirky and often laugh-out-loud hilarious, Mango Cheeks, Metal Teeth is a playful coming-of-age story that gently explores the themes of growing up, loss of innocence and the intimate yet aloof nature of upstairs-downstairs relationships
