Is a music video of a child singing shallow love songs obnoxious or cute?
The answer to that question is subjective and, like Justin Bieber, somewhat polarising. Best to have a look below and decide for yourself.
The video features a young boy named Yuhan Khan, who is most likely still in elementary school, singing a mashup of Bangla and Hindi romantic songs in a yet-to-be-trained voice!

The video also features a female lead character called Meem who is seen running towards Yuhan, in imitation of Bollywood/Hollywood's most notorious ROMCOMs.

It has created an uproar in the virtual world.
To be fair, young Yuhan and his female lead are earnest enough, and have a certain screen je ne sais quoi which is quite endearing.

But some netizens strenuously disapprove.
A concerned teacher posted:
I am concerned about our future generation! I am a teacher and I sometimes compare myself at their age [SIC]! Their priorities are now clash of clans, sultan suleiman and games of thrones. They pass their lonely time with ipad. Some of them has made an imaginary invisible friend, to who they play, talk and share thoughts. Career is important but your child should be your priority first. Please do take care before it's too late."
Others are dumbfounded! (We suppose we belong to this category.)
Not surprisingly, some viewers found the boy cute!
And still other posted comments in defence of the move!
One concerned uncle, with his Murad Takla-style BANGLISH, hit back at critics.
Overall, I’d like to suggest readers: Enjoy the video and keep sharing it! Let’s make this kid what he wants to be. As his uncle confirmed, Yuhan wants to be an ACTOR!
