Adopting a father to make over his sins...
11 December 2003 | by (Seattle, WA, US) – See all my reviews

This movie is about lost relations. Son of an old man comes from US to see his father after 15 long years. He didn't bother all these years to find whereabouts of his old father.

The house where his father lived is locked and his father is not available. He then starts searching for him all around. He visits various relatives in different parts of India. Finally he gets to know that his father has gone to stay in an old age home (home for old/deserted people).He reaches there to find that his father passed away only a month back. He repents this very much. He gets to meet room partner of his father in the old age home who tells him events about his father.With a heavy heart, he tries to make over for his fault. He requests that old person to come to US with him.He want to adopt him as his father and serve him like he would have done with his own father.

A very small budget movie from NFDC depicting sorrow state of old parents which happens to be a reality for many...
