I don't understand what you're trying to ask. Which movie are you referring to?

How old are your kids?

You have to understand the content of the movie... before you decide whether it is suitable for them..

Some movies might be too chim for them.. they won't enjoy.. will get bore..parents won't get to enjoy.. and got to leave halfway..

So is your call..

It is not a English movie.
The movie name is "Deiva Thirumagan".The following link is the trailer to the movie.
http://youtu.be/TG3HENOagdc
The movie review as follows.
Deiva Thirumagan is a desi version of I am Sam say reports. Anushka plays the lawyer role and Amala Paul is Vikram’s wife in it. A mentally challenged person fights for the rights of upbringing his child is the concept of this film. Vikram has delivered his career best performance in this film says the director.

My concern is if my kids see the mentally challenged person then they will have many questions.Is it bad for them?

I'm not familiar with the movie you're talking about but I have watched I Am Sam and it's an excellent movie. I've watched it with my kids before and it was very touching. Whether it's suitable for your kids depends on how old they are and their level of maturity. Be prepared to answer a lot of questions after the movie.

My kids were under 12, but they're rather mature in their thinking. They found the movie touching.
