From the rough streets and back alleys of Central Mumbai comes the sensational true story of Arun Gawli, a man who scripted his own destiny, eventually going on to become one of India’s most feared mobsters. Today he remains an enigmatic figure; at once a volatile, power-hungry gangster for some and the venerated “Daddy” or a modern day Robin Hood for the working-class neighbourhood he belongs to.
Daddy follows the intertwined fates of the world-weary Gawli as he attempts to enter politics and a resentful, frustrated Police Inspector with a secret history in the mob.
Shot in sweeping widescreen and drenched in lurid colour, the film is a potent cocktail of true crime cinema and Mumbai pop culture. An unfolding jigsaw puzzle, narrated from multiple perspectives and spanning over four decades, Daddy is an unforgettable excursion into the Mumbai underworld.
