Siddharth (2013)

Siddharth (2013)Canadian director and co-writer of Siddharth, Richie Mehta, was inspired by his own encounter with a man on the streets of India looking for his lost son. His film poses the same questions Mehta must have had after this encounter. “What happened to the boy?” And, perhaps as importantly, “How could a father know so little about his own child?” Unfortunately, while Mehta is able to present an authentic, dusty portrait of India’s poverty-stricken metropolises, he’s unable to find the same authenticity in his portrayal of Mahendra. Mehta has created a character too inscrutable to answer the compelling questions his film raises.
