After being abandoned for eight years in a boarding school, Rohan (Rajat Barmache) returns to the small industrial town of Jamshedpur and finds himself confined with a controlling father and a younger half-brother who he didn’t even know existed. Forced to toil in his father’s steel factory and study engineering against his wishes, he tries to forge his own life out of his given situations and chase after his ambition to be a writer.
Bollywood films sure have come a long way. Although I find the sing-and-dance routine entertaining, I’m pleased that Indian filmmakers are able to produce moving movies such as Udaan.
I’ve to give props to the director Vikramaditya Motwane for his brilliant vision, the duo writers of Vikramaditya Motwane, and Anurag Kashyap, which tells a story of hope and chasing your dreams.
Udaan tells of a boys who has has to face the harsh reality of life, and of shattered dreams. But people are capable of amazing feats, and through sheer will and stubbornness not willing to give up any more of his dreams, Rohan sets out to fulfill his purpose in life.
