Son wanted to go on a trip. Reminded him about the things he could've done and been somewhere in life by now. A guilt trip is still a trip.

This tweet by TheIndianFather perfectly encapsulates the essence of a parent-child relationship. And the amazing dynamic between a parent and a child has been spectacularly woven in stories of a few Bollywood films.
Let’s check them out below!
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
“Dharamvir, naam toh suna hi hoga”. No? Raj’s father Dharamvir Malhotra played by Anupam Kher was the coolest father in the world! He not only congratulated his son on failing his exam but also sent him on a trip to Switzerland, and the rest is history. Without him, there would’ve been no ‘Dilwales’ or ‘Dulhanias’.
Mere Baap Pehele Aap
Mere Bapp Pehele Aap is a hilarious movie with an amazing role reversal where the son helps his father get together with his first love!
Piku is a quirky comedy about the relationship between a daughter and her ageing father, whose eccentricities drive everyone crazy.
Dil Dhadakne Do
A brother and sister deal with the impact of family considerations on their romantic lives while celebrating their parent’s 30th wedding anniversary on a cruise.
Paa is a beautiful film about a boy suffering from progeria who reconnects with his father in a series of cute events.
All these movies showcase the amazing bond between a parent and child - the selfless, never-ending, eternal love that parents shower their children with.
When they age, all that parents ask for is time and little attention. So, go ahead and spend some quality time with your parents and create lasting memories of this beautiful bond. All those who do this deserve a #PatOnTheBack.
