Dear Dad: All you should know about this Bollywood’s drama movie

Dear Dad

Tanuj Bhramar wrote and directed Dear Dad, a drama movie released in 2016. The movie follows the story of Shivam (Himanshu Sharma), a 14-year-old boy, and his 45-year-old father, Nitin (Arvind Swamy). On May 13, 2016, the movie was released. This really is Arvind Swamy’s third appearance in a Hindi movie.

“Dear Dad warrants a viewing solely for such deep message it conveys about embracing people for who and what they are as well as loving them unconditionally,” according to the Times of India, which rated the movie three out of five stars. “Fortunately, “Dear Dad” is powerful enough to resist external criticism,” noted the Hindustan Times, who rated the movie three and a half stars.

It’s a big topic as well as a potentially powerful picture, full of the tenderness and violence that individuals we love are prone to when they’re pushed to the limit.” “So after the reveal is over and done with, there’s nothing more to keep you hooked,” the Hindu observed, “despite Arvind Swamy’s pleasant presence and sincere attempt.”

This is a movie that I strongly advise everyone to see. It’s really underappreciated.

The way the narrative was told, the screenplay, the photography, as well as the performers all, did an outstanding job. Hats out to the whole crew behind this film, including the director, DOP, editors, musicians, and anybody else I may have overlooked.

The filmmaker avoids slamming judgement values in our rather bemused faces. His characters are who they are, and they do what they do… We are persuaded to enter their troubled, torn world, where moral judgments are not permitted. The fact that Arvind Swamy and young Himanshu Sharma play the father and son with pitch-perfect anguish, makes the director’s job so much easier.

For most of the 90-minute soul-searching excursion, the director gives his characters room to breathe easily. Apart from the father and son, an interesting third protagonist enters the plot to stir up the simmering cauldron of the confessional.

Nitin’s ex-wife (Ekaval Khanna) retaliates cruelly to Nitin’s dislike for her new husband near the end of the film, and it’s one of my favourite scenes.

“At least he’s straight,” the woman replies, not irrationally.

“Ouch,” says our hero, who is now blissfully out of the closet, despite the fact that he is still unmarried and a loving parent. Though that’s a movie regarding painful revelations, “Dear Dad” is not really a sad movie. It is not a celebration of human weakness. But it tells us that it’s fine to be who we are and not to worry about how we are what we are.
