The film has been extensively shot in Delhi and brings out the best in characters portraying character roles, Prairna said.
The movie is truly in an embodiment of care and affection for the girl child lacking in our society where preference for male child is paramount.
It dwells upon the fact that child labour is a crime and affluent families or even middle class families should refrain from domesticating girl child as slaves.
Additionally, the movie also somewhere hints towards PM's 'Swachhta Abhiyaan'.
The film’s story seeks to convey a message that if given opportunities, girls can flourish educationally and carve a niche for themselves in society.
It conveys the message that if everyone were to care for the girl child, there wouldn't be need to thrust schemes and plead to care for them.
The movie is an eye opener and a must watch for cinegoers.
It is a commendable debut by director Navin Kumar.
