Simplicity has always been at the heart of each Rajshri story. And Uunchai is everything one can expect from a bonafide Rajshri film. As the banner, celebrates 75 years of perfecting the family-friendly movie genre, this film marks Sooraj Barjatya return after seven years bringing a mixed bag of feelings, including love, sorrow, dreams, wishes, friendship, failures, self-belief, conviction, and a pledge to your loved ones - making it the perfect Sunday afternoon family watch.
Sooraj Barjatya mentioned, “There is so much power that cinema holds, it can gather a family and ensure a good time. At Rajshri, we are always striving to create films where we can communicate family values and bring them to life. As we celebrate 75 years, we continue to bring on screen the small important things that are often taken for granted. I hope this has translated with Uunchai and the audience of Zee Cinema feels the love we're trying to propagate through this film”
Neena Gupta said, “For the longest time I had been hoping to work with Sooraj Barjatiya and with this film I finally got the chance to be a part of something heart-warming. The movie is an emotion in itself and just instantly brings a sense of togetherness. In my life, I find such strong pillars of strength in my family – we're living through our individual journeys supporting each other unconditionally. So, I knew what this film meant. The film has taught me, once again, how important it is to cherish your closed ones”
Anupam Kher added, “Uunchai was a voyage that was both personal and transcendental. I have been a part of the Rajshri Productions family since its inception almost, and celebrating 75 years of Rajshri with a film like this almost feels like life has come a full circle. My character is irritable, inflexible and I'm sure we all have that one person in our family or friends' circle. That's what makes the film the perfect Sunday family watch, you will be able to relate each character to one in your very own family”
