“On Golden Years” a film by Emmy-Nominated filmmaker Tirlok Malik: TV Premiere on TV Asia

The television premiere of Tirlok Malik’s new film On Golden Years will be shown on TV Asia on June 1st 2018 at 8pm and June 3rd 2018 at 1pm.

Malik who is an Indian American and a New Yorker has made many films starting from Lonely In America, Love, Lust & Marriage, Khushiyaan, On Golden Years and many more. They all deal with the effects of migration in America.

As an immigrant, when we come in the search of American Dream, at times we find ourselves we are “Lonely In America.” After achieving and living the American Dream, we also realize if we want real “Khushiyaan” (meaning: happiness), we need to make time to visit our aging parents and family in India.

Now in “On Golden Years” (the time to retire), some of us have conflicts such as deciding whether to retire in India vs America, contentedness vs regrets, etc. We need to come to terms with life as an immigrant: the retirement of the American Dream. This romantic comedy teaches us to live every day like Valentine's Day.

The film On Golden Years is written and directed by New York Emmy nominated filmmaker Tirlok Malik. The idea of the story is inspired from the book Seeking Roots by Iggy. Iggy Ignatius is also the codirector/producer of the film.
