Fathers have always been celebrated in Bollywood films, whether they are severe, laid-back, have dad jokes up their sleeves, or work hard to help their children achieve their dreams.

B-wood films depict a diverse range of fathers, from those who will go to any length to secure their child’s pleasure (as in Paa and Masoom) to those who will do whatever to ensure their child’s happiness. Some of the best films to watch this Father’s Day primarily include:

1. Masoom

Shekhar Kapur’s film stars Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi as a married couple named DK and Indu. When they discover that DK has a son called Rahul from a previous relationship, their world changes. With an interesting story, this movie examines parenting via themes of love, forgiveness, and the bravery to start afresh.

2. Piku

Piku is one of the most popular movies for Father’s Day. It is about an argumentative father and his daughter. A road trip from Delhi to Kolkata changes their relationship. On their journey, they meet Bhaskar, a man who is concerned about his health. They become closer and learn new things about one another as they travel.

The story takes a completely romantic turn in Kolkata. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Moushumi Chatterjee, and the late Irrfan Khan.
