Many films have been made throughout the years that beautifully showcased the father and daughter bond.

Mahavir Singh Phogat in Dangal

'Mhari chhoriyan choro se kam hai ke,' this dialogue from Aamir Khan's movie Dangal says it all. Amir Khan played the role of former wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat in the sports drama. Even being a strict father and a trainer to make his daughters world-class wrestlers, never supported the ideology that women can't be wrestlers. Aamir's character believed that daughters are no less than sons, they are equal in every aspect even physically. He may be seen as a harsh father-trainer yet he fought with everyone for his daughter's aspirations.

Bhashkor Banerjee in Piku

Piku, is a film that you can consider watching on Father's day as it gives some beautiful and different perspectives about the father and daughter relationship. The character of "Piku" was so real and relatable, a father whose day started with her daughter and even ends with it. Even being frustrated with her personal and professional life, Piku (Deepika Padukone) deals with the childish behaviours of her father Amitabh Bachchan.

With regard to issues like marriage, sex, and love, the film demonstrated Bhashkor Banerjee's liberal viewpoint. Even though his daughter was in her 30s and unmarried, he was never bothered about it. Bhashkor was happy to be the father of a headstrong, independent, and fearless daughter. In every choice, he encouraged and helped her.

Kumud Mishra in Thappad

As a parent, Kumud Mishra's character Sachin Sandhu always stood by his daughter Taapsee Pannu in all of her decisions, whether it was ending her marriage or filing for divorce while expecting a child. Everyone else in the family, including Sandhya (Ratna Pathak Shah), was against the divorce since she thought girls needed to adapt to marriage in order for it to be successful, but Sachin had a different perspective. Sachin became aware at this point that although his wife had made sacrifices during their marriage, he had never intended for his daughter to do the same and had always wanted her to live her own life. Father’s Day 2023 Cake Ideas: 5 Cool Yet Yummy Cakes To Surprise Your Father and Make Him Feel Special.
