Where did you watch this movie?

This evocative family drama revolves around a loving couple, Swami and Radha, who relocate to Mumbai, with their young son, Anand after selling off their ancestral home in a village. In Mumbai, the bright and intelligent Anand gets admission into a school that's patronized by children belonging to affluent families. Everything is going fine until Radha falls ill and is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Swami starts working overtime to raise funds for the operation, but Radha spends the entire amount on a chair that Swami wants to possess so dearly. Radha passes away with just one desire: Their son, Anand should settle down in America some day. How Swami works towards that dream is the remainder of this touching tale of love and sacrifice for the sake of one's child.
