Siddharth

Mahendra (Rajesh Tailang, who co-wrote the script along with director Richie Mehta and Maureen Dorey) works as a chain-wallah, a person who repairs broken zippers on the streets. He believes his financial burdens have been lessened by his decision to send his 12-year-old son Siddharth away for work, but when the boy doesn’t return home, Mahendra fears the worst — that child traffickers have seized his son. Thus, the father must travel across India in search of his son, hoping against all odds that the boy will be released unharmed. (Opens Friday at Kenwood) (Not Rated) Not screened in time for review
