FERRARI KI SAWAARI
One of the most visible indicators of upward social mobility has been the car in front of the gate of an individual and off and on Hindi cinema has used it as a metaphor to underline the differences, aspirations, hopes and tribulations of the individuals in our society. Among the films in the past which used car as the central theme was CHALTI KA NAAM GAADI.
The latest edition in this category is FERRARI KI SAWAARI which is the offering from Vidhu Vinod Chopra after stupendously successful film 3 IDIOTS. Critics may carp that after such a successful film Vidhu Vinod Chopra took Sharman Joshi to make his new film, but that is how he is. FERRARI KI SAWARI is an aspirational film as it is the story of a father who is on a quest to fulfill the desire of his son to ride a Ferrari and how he has to fight the system to be able to do it.
