5 Movies to watch this Father’s Day

Father’s love has been criminally under-portrayed in modern cinema. Most moviemakers tend to weave in maternal love in their storytelling. It’s their easiest route to your tear ducts. And, it completely makes sense as a father’s love is quite complex to dissect cinematographically. Tough as iron on the outside and the softest silk strands of raw unexpressed emotion on the inside. However, some cinematographers have still managed to execute this task quite intricately and artistically in their movies. So, here’s our list of must-watch movies on this father’s day –
