An inspirational tale of triumph over adversity, Udaan is guaranteed to bring a lump to the throat of even the most cynical viewer. The story of a young man locked in conflict with his stern disciplinarian father has an emotional pull that is hard to resist, combined with a personable leading man in Rajat Barmecha as Rohan. When the seventeen-year-old is expelled from school, he is sent home to hard-drinking, humourless father Bhairav (Ronit Roy) who acts like a figure from a Victorian melodrama. Rohan’s ambition is to become a writer setting up a Billy Elliot-style situation in which his impossible dream goes against the grain of everything his father believes.  Preceded by short film Salt Water (1m), at GFT screening only. Part of Glasgow Film Festival
