The movie My Father Iqbal, which is a low budget film, has hit the screens without any hype. Now let’s see how it has turned out to be.


The movie seems to have been inspired from real life happening of an engineer who belongs to Jammu & Kashmir’s PWD department. The life of him is shown in different dimensions including a spouse, father, and a dedicated citizen.

The father doesn’t mind walking the extra mile to fulfill the dreams of his offspring. He also never fails to do his duties as a responsible citizen. He is a common man who is very patriotic.
Narendra Jha, the protagonist, sends his son who is very good at studies, to a famous military school located in Pathankot. The teenage daughter and his spouse support him through this hard time.

As the movie progresses the local elections take place and the candidate Kumar Vaibhav wins the election. But things turn haywire and the MLA tarnishes the good name of Narendra Jha by bringing his name in a bad act intended towards a school. What happens next? What does the honest Narendra do? Watch the movie to know.
