Dear Dad - Movie Reviews

I’m going with two out of five
Rajeev Masand
Luckily, “Dear Dad” is strong enough to withstand extraneous attacks. It is a strong subject and a potentially powerful film replete with the tenderness and brutality that those whom we love tend to thrust on us when pushed to the wall.
Hindustan Times
...Dear Dad is disappointingly skin deep
REDIFF
'Dear Dad', deserves a watch simply for the profound point it makes about accepting people for who they are and loving them unconditionally
The Times of India
€˜Dear Dad'€™, makes a stab at it, and the intention is great
Indian Express
Arvind Swamy’s father son drama should not be missed!
BollywoodLife
The slow and steady passage from love to hatred and pride would have been a profound and poignant journey that the film doesn'€™t quite embark on
The Hindu
Tanuj Bhramar was to the point, and didn'€™t beat around the bush in conveying the bitter truth
Cinema Glitz
This short, sensitive film gives out the message that parenthood has nothing to do with one'€™s sexuality
Filmfare
Dear Dad is a must watch!
Glam Sham
Nupur keeps reminding him of the need to do it fast and one day, Nitin decides to drop Shivam to his boarding school so that he can get an opportunity to be alone with his son and use the same to convey what he has been wanting to convey.
