What it's about:
A rich, cool, spoilt brat of a dog is abandoned on the wicked streets of Mumbai. He faces situations he has never faced before. He is confronted by dangerous, loony characters, the likes of which he has never met before; from mansions to streets, from five course meals to five courses of scraps, from soft beds to piles of garbage, from champagne to tap water.

What the critics said:

"The movie is slick and treacly and goes nowhere that hasn't been gone before."
Stephen Hunter - [Washington Post]

"When Did You Last See Your Father? taps into the conflicting feelings so many of us can have about parents who haunt us because they're difficult, which is part of what makes them irreplaceable."
Owen Gleiberman - [Entertainment Weekly]

"When Did You Last See Your Father?” is grown-up, civilized fare, even though the whole thing might have been improved with a bit of messiness." Manohla Dargis - [New York Times]

"When Did You Last See Your Father? is an eloquent and affecting evocation of a man who remains bigger than life even as he approaches death."
Joe Morgenstern - [Wall Street Journal]
