Tathastu Synopsis

Ravi Rajput comes from a poor family, his father was a foreman at a mill, and could not afford to send Ravi to a private school. Ravi studied in Municipal school, got a job in a mill, got married to Saru, who subsequently gave birth to their son, Gaurav. The proud parents watch as Gaurav grows up, starting walking, talking, and feigning illness just to stay home and watch World Cup Cricket. Then their lives are turned upside down when Gaurav faints while playing cricket, they take him to the nearest hospital in Bandra, where Doctors Nita and Sen inform them that their son is dying until and unless he receives a heart transplant, the cost of which is 15 lakhs rupees. A heart is available for transplant but the hospital will perform the surgery after they receive the money in advance. A desperate Ravi turns to his insurance company, which declines to renew his policy; his employer, with whom he has worked for over 11 years, can only sanction Rs.75000/-. When nothing works out and Dr. Sen informs that his son will soon be discharged, Ravi gets a gun, holds 30 people hostage in the hospital until his son gets the necessary surgery. DCP Rane is assigned to this matter and his orders are to kill Ravi and end this drama. But Ravi persists and finally he is told that Gaurav will soon be operated upon. Relieved, Ravi decides to let go of all the hostages, and it is then that he finds out that a surgery is taking place - but not of his son, but of an elderly politician, the President of the ruling political party, Narayan Swami. Watch what impact this news has on Ravi and to what extent he will go to to ensure his son's survival.

Tathastu Preview

“There is nothing more deadly than a father pushed too far...” says the punchline of 'Tathastu', a movie directed by Anubhav Sinha . The film tells the story of a father who takes law into his hands in order to save his ailing son's life.

Sanjay Dutt plays the leading role. Amisha Patel plays his wife, and master Yash Pathak, his son. Other actors in the movie are Jaya Prada , Manoj Pahwa , Gulshan Grover and Asrani.

Sanjay Dutt plays Ravi, a middle-class man who works in a factory for a meager salary of Rs 5,000 a month. Ravi is married to Sarita (Amisha Patel) and has an eight-year-old son who is very fond of playing cricket.

Despite their financial troubles, Ravi, Sarita and their son make a happy family. Ravi's world comes crashing down after his son collapses while playing cricket. Doctors diagnose a hole in the little boy's heart and suggest a heart transplant surgery.

A heart transplant needs lakhs of rupees. Ravi tries to raise the money by asking for help from his office, the insurance companies and the loan lenders. But he is turned back from every door.

In the meantime, the little boy's condition worsens as he stops responding to the medication. Sarita begins to lose hope. She beseeches Ravi to do something fast to save their son's life. Ravi decides to take an extreme step.

Ravi goes to the hospital, points a gun at the doctor, and takes all the people in the waiting room hostage. His demand is clear : his son should undergo a heart transplant operation or else he won't set any hostage free.

Outside the hospital, police cordon off the area and a stubborn cop plans an operation to neutralize the threat from Ravi. The plan is to secure the hostages even if Ravi needs to be killed for that.

Inside the hospital, Ravi is extremely kind and considerate to his hostages, who in turn begin to empathize with him. In the meantime, the news of Ravi's intentions and his extraordinary effort to save his son's life spreads in the city and people start gathering outside the hospital to support him. In the operation theatre, Ravi says his final goodbye to his son, knowing well that the cops can break in any time. The son will have a heart transplant operation, but Ravi may end up loosing his own life.

'Tathastu' is inspired from the Hollywood movie 'John Q' that starred Denzel Washington in the lead role.

The movie is produced by Nitin Manmohan. Vinay and Yash have written the film's screenplay and story.

'Tathastu' is slated to hit the theatres on May 12.

Movie Review : Disappoints (0.5/5)
'Tathastu' is one of those hard-boiled stories that question the morality and the ethics of a society which has a gaping divide between the haves and have-nots. Sadly, the movie fails to make any impact because of poor writing and direction.There is a big question mark whether the film's dir...
