A teenager (Rohan) is kicked out of his boarding school after a series of pranks, and returns "home;" he hasn't seen or talked to his family in eight years. His father, an abusive factory owner, decides Rohan needs to become an engineer ("Yes, sir," Rohan replies). But Rohan wants to be a writer. He's already a great storyteller. Meanwhile, Rohan struggles to develop a relationship with his younger half-brother, who wasn't even born when he left for boarding school.

This is a story of a dysfunctional family. Udann is a movie that would work even if it wasn't centered in India, since the issues - physical abuse, parental love, abandonment, conflicting goals - occur worldwide. Indeed, if this was a story centered in, say, Detroit, it would still work.

In this subtitled version, the color of the subtitling was such that there were many occasions, particularly at the end of the movie, when the light background made it very difficult to read. That's a real production problem.

The India presented here was not the noisy, crowded, impoverished India featured in many other India-centered movies that make it to the United States. It focuses on relationships.

The actors, and the acting, were perfect for this movie. Recommended.

After being awed by TZM, and having enjoyed Outsourced, Slumdog Millionaire, and My Name Is Khan, I started watching more
Bollywood films. I had not heard anything about Udaan, but I ordered it on Netflix. I found this to be as good as any of the
above mentioned films. The performances of the entire cast, and the script and story were exceptional. The ending brought
tears to my eyes. A terrific film, in my opinion better than "Khan", which won the Filmfare award the same year as best picture,
as I felt the ending of that film betrayed the first 2 hours.

Nothing about Udaan is grand or extraordinary. This story of a severely dysfunctional family with a teenage boy tugging hard at the last remaining strings that hold the family in place is full of heart and soul. The unblemished performances of the actors take it to another level.

Udaan is peppered with some hilarious moments but at times the artiness catches up and you have a dragging moment. This is one of those movies which once you watch you sort of feel empowered ...like maybe you can do anything you want if you put your heart into it! If the father shown in the film is anywhere close to yours you'll feel happy that there's some hope for you to get over it all. If you can't relate to this onscreen father at all, it will make you glad that you are so lucky!

Udaan is one of those films that reflect life and watching it may just give perspective on yours
