Veteran actor Arvind Swamy, who made his Bollywood debut with Mani Ratnam's 1992 film "Roja", is returning to the Hindi film after gap of 24 years. He will appear in upcoming film "Dear Dad". The film trailer was released today and offers a new and refreshing look.
The film features Arvind as a 45-year-old dad and Himanshu Sharma as his 14-year-old son. The film story deals with father-son bonding. It is a coming of age story mixed with the confessions of a father. The trailer hints at a strained relationship between the two due to, perhaps, some sort of transgression committed by the father, which he is shown attempting to rectify.
The father-son duo embarks on a road trip from their home, in Delhi, to Mussorie where Shivam attends boarding school. Unexpected confessions, weird strangers, accidental meetings all these add up to a complicated and sweet tale.The film, directed by first-timer Tanuj Bhramar, is slated to release in theatres on May 6.
