During this period of lockdown when ‘doordarshan’ is revisiting the old classics like Ramayana, Mahabharata, Circus etc. I accidently stumbled upon an old Classic by Mahesh Bhatt “Daddy”. Quality of visuals was of course not in HD but content makes you less attentive towards pixels. Watching Anupam kher, neena gupta, soni Razdan ,   manohar Singh and Pooja Bhatt keeping you engrossed and listening to Talat Aziz with ‘Aaina mujse meri pehli si surat mange’ was nostalgic.
