Plot: In the era of large scale corruption, where everyone seated on a chair that holds power is neck deep in corruption, exist unlikely heroes. Ordinary people who put up an extraordinary fight. People who become epitome of ‘standing for your rights’.
Preeti, the free-spirited daughter of Sadgun Thakur, is in love with Anshul, son of an IAS officer. Their match isn’t acceptable to Preeti’s family and in a fit of rage Preeti’s brother kills Anshul.
This is where the story begins.
Having lost their young son, the parents of Anshul, Mr and Mrs Sharma are hence confronted by the corrupt system. They can’t match steps with Thakur’s political powers and ways to shield his son. However, encouraged and supported by Anshul’s younger brother Akash, the old couple makes a resolution- to fight, fight till they get justice.
This is the journey of the mother who has lost the child she once held in her hands and dreamt of an old age holding his hands.
It’s the journey of a brother who could have focused on his career, his future, yet decides to give it all up so that never again will a brother lose his ‘bhai’ to an act of rage.
It’s also the journey of a soul-mate who loses herself after the loss of her love so much, that she takes any path she is guided to. She even supports her brother when faced with the legal system, but at the end the unadulterated power of love brings her to the threshold and she stands for the right.
Dehraadun Diary is a much needed film about the strength in common man, the fury that loss lends you and about the fearlessness that come only with unconditional love.
