SERIOUS MAN

Serious Men (Netflix)
Based on a novel of the same name by Manu Joseph, the film narrates the story of a personal assistant, Ayyan Mani facing the turmoil of life. Ayyan has had enough with everyone calling him names like ‘knobhead’ and ‘moron’. The movie in a way condemns the broken Indian education system and the inclination of parents projecting their unaccomplished goals and aspirations on their children. The movie captures the mood of the nation.

Marilynne Robinson produces an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart.

rAJMA

Rajma Chawal (Netflix)
The movie’s name comes from the idea that the dish Rajma Chawal has an exclusive intimation with family and home, something Kabir Mathur is completely embittered by. Kabir’s entire life has been overthrown as he shifts to Old Delhi which feels more like a prison to him. Kabir’s father, Ram, fears that his son would grow distant from him and slip away. The movie in a way inspires new-age father and son relationships
