Letting go is tough, be it with people or with things. Patriarch of the Srivastava family, Nagesh (Naseeruddin Shah) is obsessed with his antique copy machine that has been his bread and butter for years. The machine occupies space that their daughter could use as a study room. The machine is now fairly useless, but Nagesh has a deep emotional connection with it and is not willing to let go.

Hope Aur Hum depicts a story that can happen in any family. There is comedy, romance, heartbreak, loss, and nostalgia and the emotions come and go throughout the film. Do catch the movie in theatres and is enjoyed best with your full family.
