Manohar Samosewala - Ranchi Ka Mashoor

By Visshal Sinha with 6.7

drama · Short Films · hindi

Agastaya is a teenaged boy who now finds himself located at a dizzying crossroad. While on the one hand he had always dreamt of expanding his father's small shop that sells samosas and is known far and wide for the same, on the other, he wishes to pursue a life that is nowhere in close proximity of this dream. Consequently, he is being pulled into the eddies of peer pressure, young romance and a desire to finally break the truth to his father.

However, once the conversation is done between the two, a new realization and truth awaits Agastaya. In the process, the film becomes a sincere exploration of a father-son relationship, and the manner in which a young boy's desire to feel one with his peers threatens to influence it.

All of the drama unfolds around the samosa shop, further allowing it to be a primary character in the film. The final product proves to be an endeavor of sincerity, allowing the many dynamics of familial relationships a lucid portrayal for the viewer to engage with.
