About “Nannu Kshaminchandi

In our lives, the role of parents, especially our mother and father, is crucial. Their support is essential at every step. While a mother’s role in nurturing a person is significant, how that person evolves as an adult is often heavily influenced by the father’s involvement. Fathers are vigilant about the mistakes we make as children, hoping we learn and pre- vent our own kids from making the same errors.

“Nannu Kshaminchandi” (Please Forgive Me) narrates a poignant story about the impact of a father’s guidance and the repercussions of strained relationships. It depicts how a decision made in anger can change lives and how reconciliation can transform the course of events.


The story revolves around a son who, despite his father’s occasional harsh words and actions, decides to distance himself from his father. This decision drastically alters his life. The film beautifully portrays the son’s journey towards understanding and forgiving his father, highlighting the lessons learned from both the father’s and the son’s perspectives.


This narrative is not just about a single father and son but resonates with anyone who has experienced familial conflicts. It teaches us that we should never distance ourselves from loved ones, as every moment in life is a test and a twist.
