Patang

Directed by Prashant Bhargava • 2011 • India
Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mukkund Shukla, Seema Biswas

Set against the vibrant backdrop of Ahmedabad, India, during the city’s magnificent kite festival—in which a million kites take to the skies in a spectacular display of color and pageantry—PATANG (“The Kite”) follows Jayesh (Mukkund Shukla), a successful Delhi businessman who travels to the city in hopes of sharing the joyous occasion with his daughter (Sugandha Garg). There, he reconnects with his estranged family—including his widowed sister-in-law (Seema Biswas) and her distrustful son (Nawazuddin Siddiqui)—who force him to confront the tattered relationships he has long neglected. In the hands of director Prashant Bhargava, this gentle family snapshot becomes a wondrous celebration of the sights, sounds, and spirit of contemporary India.
