Days with Dandekar 

Story

After getting laid off from his job of thirty years, 69-year-old RK Dandekar falls into a depression, sitting around his home eat too much, and driving around in his old Volvo. In an effort to cheer him up, his wife and daughters buy him a brand new Volvo, trading away his old one.

 

Outraged, Dandekar goes on a day-long journey to reclaim his beloved car. Along the way, he meets a quirky cast of characters who remind his of his own life's journey. Through his day-long quest, he comes to realize that he can’t relive the past, he can only move forward.

Selected for the Film Independent Screenwriter's Lab and Tribeca All Access, Days with Dandekar is a movie about  hope, family and re-defining one's sense of purpose when all seems lost. Written and directed by Leena Pendharkar, Produced by Jane Kelly Kosek.
