Forced to work in his father’s steel factory and study engineering against his wishes, he tries to forge his own life out of his given circumstances and pursue his dream of being a writer. —Cannes Film Festival
It took me several tries to finish this film, because the harshness between father and sons was too much for me to stomach - in fact I've seen several instances like this in real life, so the film hit very close to home. Acting wise, everyone's performance was stellar. Music by Amit Trivedi was a winner, with Azaadiyaan being my favorite.
One of the best new Indian films I have seen- which not only has a strong, heart-felt realistic story, but the film never veers from the relationship between father, son and the little brother Congratulations to all who made it, esp the two boys, who are just magnificent. I hope Western film-goers world will see this film and be moved by it..
