Several films over the years have captured the beautiful bond between fathers and daughters to great effect. The Bollywood film Goodbye, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rashmika Mandanna, is set to release on Netflix this Friday. The film tells the story of a father-daughter duo who are grieving the loss of a loved one and the journey of self-discovery they undertake together. So for today’s List hai toh hit hai podcast we take a look at some of the best on-screen father-daughter duos.

Piku (SonyLIV)

Shoojit Sircar’s quirky comedy-drama Piku received widespread acclaim when it was released in 2015. Starring Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan, and Irrfan Khan in lead roles, the film tells the story of a slightly eccentric aging father played by Bachchan and the complicated relationship he has with his daughter, played by Padukone. Their hilarious quarrels and the love they share for one another is the film’s central narrative. Its strong screenplay and moving performances by the lead actors make it a compelling watch.

Abhiyum Naanum (Prime Video)

The 2008 Tamil film Abhiyum Naanum stars veteran Tamil actor Prakash Raj in the lead alongside Trisha Krishnan. The film is a heartwarming tale of a man named Raghuraman having a conversation with another man about Raghuraman’s daughter, Abhi, and the various ups and downs they endured together over the years. Directed by Radha Mohan, the film was widely praised upon release for its tone and poignant story.

Father of the Bride (Disney+ Hotstar)

The most iconic film on this list is the 1991 classic Father of the Bride. This laugh riot stars Hollywood comedy legend Steve Martin in the lead as a doting father named George who is struggling to come to terms with the fact that his 22-year-old daughter Annie is about to be married to a man she has known for only three months. George dislikes his future son-in-law Bryan from the moment they meet, despite Bryan being a well-liked young man. This cult classic became a template for comedy films in the 90s and it was also remade in 2022 starring Andy García, Gloria Estefan, and Adria Arjona.

Uma (Disney+ Hotstar)

When it comes to stories that will bring tears and joy in equal measure, not many films can eclipse Srijit Mukherji’s 2018 Bengali drama film Uma. When a family is informed that their terminally ill daughter Uma will not live long enough to see the next Durga Puja, they decide to hire a struggling director to recreate a set resembling the Bengali cultural festival so that Uma can enjoy her final days filled with joy and happiness. The film stars Jisshu Sengupta, Sara Sengupta, and Anjan Dutt in lead roles, and the story is loosely based on true events about a young Canadian boy named Evan Leversage, whose family recreated Christmas before his death.

June (Disney+ Hotstar)

The 2019 Malayalam coming-of-age comedy June tells the story of June Sara Joy and it chronicles her life from high school to womanhood. The story follows June’s friendships, love interests, and aspirations between the ages of 16-26. During these years her pillar of support has always been her father. Rajisha Vijayan plays the lead as the titular character whereas Joju George essays the role of June’s father. The Ahammed Khabeer directorial features a supporting cast of Sarjano Khalid, Arjun Ashokan, Aswathi Menon, Sunny Wayne, and Aju Varghese.

Interstellar (Netflix and Prime Video)

The final film on this list is an unconventional choice – the 2014 sci-fi space epic helmed by Christopher Nolan Interstellar. The film’s plot is about human beings in the future exploring the cosmos in order to find habitable worlds as a result of Earth’s resources depleting exponentially, with the potential of mass extinction. While the story is far from being a family entertainer like other titles on this list, its central theme is the bond between the father-daughter duo of Cooper and Murph, and how their love across space and time becomes pivotal in saving the human race. Matthew McConaughey plays the lead as Cooper, while Jessica Chastain and Mackenzie Foy essay the older and younger versions of Murph. The film also features a star-studded ensemble of Anne Hathaway, John Lithgow, Michael Caine, Wes Bentley, Casey Affleck, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon.
