Mumbai. Parents always serve as role models to their children. Parenting has also differed sharply from the past. Likewise, as the children grow up, there is a distant relationship between the parents and the children. In recent years, the relationship between parents and children has profoundly changed. Most of the new generation youngsters hardly find time for their parents and look after their needs during their old age.Young and talented filmmaker Sammir I. Patel has made a short film on this subject. Titled as ‘p f a: Love Mom and Dad’ the film in Hindi and English features Yusuf Hussain and Rishi Saxena in its cast. The English version of this short film is complete and is being planned to take it to various International film festivals. Meanwhile, the short film in Hindi version was screened at U.S. Film Festival, Goa Film Festival, and Kashmir International Film Festival and received appreciation too.
Looking at the positive reception, director Sammir I Patel is gearing up to complete the English version of the short film for various festivals. Excited over the development, Sammir Patel says, “This short film is of 15 minutes duration. It shows the constructive relationship between a son and handicapped father. The son transforms his house into a hotel, cinema auditorium and whatsoever according to the mood and requirement and always keeps his father absorbed and happy.” Patel further adds, “It is an emotional film and an eye-opener for today’s generation. I am sending this film to all the short film festivals which will be held this year.”
