Written and directed by Milind Dhaimade, Tu Hai Mera Sunday (You Are My Sunday) is a simple story focusing on the importance of friendship and having hope.
Based on the director’s own experiences of growing up in Mumbai, the film centres on five young men and their attempts at navigating through their work and personal lives. Brought together by a love for playing football, the men meet every Sunday as a form of escapism, allowing them to enjoy a game together and forget about their troubles for a few hours. Following an incident involving an elderly stranger, the group is banned from their usual playing ground and must find a new place to play within the crowded city of Mumbai.
The narrative follows each man through his own struggles and shows how the individuals deal with their problems in different ways. The bond between them is an important theme running throughout the story, as we witness how strongly they care for each other and just how deep-rooted their love is. The entire cast excels in their given role, and it is easy to see how much they enjoyed working together. The audience is invited into their personal spaces, and as a result, we are led to truly invest in their will to find the happiness they are looking for.
More than just a film about football, Tu Hai Mera Sunday (You Are My Sunday) is a movie about all the ways our lives can link together and the importance of having your own space to be yourself. Each story feels so believable and every one of the main characters is extremely well-developed and easy to care about. What seems from the outset to be a simple story ends up carrying more heart than you would ever expect.
