Sixth Happiness
Story of a Parsee boy growing up in Bombay during the early 1960's with a brittle bone disease which only allows him to grow to be four feet tall. Western medicine has done nothing to improve his condition and adulthood finds him wheelchair-bound and overprotected. Things change though when his sister leaves him on getting married and he is separated from his father. Although he is supposed to marry a deaf girl, he falls for Cyrus, with whom he discovers his true potential. His sexual awakening allows him to come to truly come to terms with the looks of his body.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What could easily have been a maudlin exercise...is lightened throughout by a highly observant comic take on this eccentric, quick-witted family and their even more colorful neighbors."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
