My Father Iqbal is based on a real life incident of an engineer from J&K`s PWD department who fulfills multiple responsibilities in his life. He is a husband, father and above all – a sincere and honest citizen.
The film captures the struggle of a father who`d go to any length to achieve the dreams of his child while maintaining his duty towards the country. The father depicts the patriotism of a common man who fights for his country. There are also some light elements in the film portraying a typical middle class husband-wife relationship, their love and their tiffs. The father is not just protective towards his family but also towards the entire society that he lives in. Some terrorists use him to create havoc in the atmosphere that the family hails from. He always sacrifices his dreams, he stands like a protective rock and saves everyone from the evil intentions.
