A very rare father-son and son-father relationship

Relations are important in life but what it feels like having a relation with

someone who is not going to survive for long? What if, we know everything in

advance and we cannot stop it from happening in the future? Most of us will

start losing hope and may die before occurrence of that event. In our Indian

Cinema, mostly movies have emphasized on mother-son and lover’s relationship,

But Paa emphasizes on such tiny things which can touch your heart forever. We have never seen a movie in which a father

has acted as a son of his own son. Sounds confusing and frenzy but it was



Amitabh Bachchan- As Auro

Abhishek Bachchan- As Amol Atre

Vidya Balan- As Vidya

Paresh Rawal- As Mr. Atre

Produced by Sunil Manchanda

Directed by R.Balakrishan

The Plot

The movie begins with entry of Amol Atre in Edward Will School where he comes across Auro. Auro is 12

years old student who is afflicted with incurable progeria disease. He looks

more mature & responsible than students of his age and that’s what makes

him special. He’s not an ordinary student because he doesn’t allow his mother

(Vidya) to drop him off at school. He can only eat “Khichdi” throughout the day

and that’s what he detest the most. He’s normal and adept. He doesn’t ask too

many questions and always stay away from girls. He considers Vishnu as his best

friend who keeps on updating him about father-son relationship from time to

time. From childhood till 12 years old he doesn’t know about his father. His

mother decides to tell him the truth so that before facing death, he should be

aware of who is who? They have past. Yeah, Vidya and Amol were college-goers

and they met each other while studying in Cambridge. They turned into lovers and make

love. Vidya gets pregnant and she decides to give birth to auro. Amol proffered

to take the responsibility and she comes back to lucknow. There, she lives with her mother and Auro.

Giving birth to Auro and then coming across bitter truth of progeria disease

didn’t shatter her hopes & strength. She takes life as it comes to her and this

makes her son a very honest and straight-forward child. Auro gets an award for

making an empty globe and becomes famous within a day. The media starts

following him wherever he goes. For uttering his frustration he sends an email

to Amol. The MP replies him back in the polite tone and makes him assure of not

getting disturbed by media again. Auro and Amol become goof friends and Amol

promises him a visit to Rashtrapati bhavan. They come to Delhi and spend good time with each other.

Auro promises his mother of not telling the truth to his father. On their visit

to Rashtrapati bhavan, Auro makes a blunt decision of getting back to Hotel.

Amol feels zany and ask him the reason behind it. It doesn’t take much to start

with the theory of potty. I didn’t know that R.Balakrishan was so wheedle with

this potty word that they have used it more than 10 times in the movie. After coming

back to Lucknow, Auro suffers from an attack and he

gets admitted in hospital for the treatment. Amol visits him and Auro thinks

about reunion of his parents again so that he can die peacefully. The end was

painful and impeccable.
