Director Statement

Hello, I am Jaideep Singh Mann. Currently a student in Canada Ontario.

This film was made when I was in India (2021), and it focuses on subject of domestic violence on wife and children, while also teaching a lesson about life. That no matter what, the people around you make or break your story of life, so company is important even your own father, if it is bad you have to tear that chapter away from your life.

This message is symbolized in the film using supernatural powers of the protagonist -Shikhar Pratap where he can touch any object and experience or embody the characters of the incident that happened around that object.
He transforms into those characters mentally.

The same message of Company is also explained using a metaphor of a book.
That our life is like a book and each and every person you meet or be with is at least a page in that book, and if the story of your life becomes tragic, sad and painful, then no matter how hard it is, it is important to tear those pages out of the book of your life so that colour and peace can come back to your life.
Which is also depicted by change in colors and aspect ratio of the film while things take a turn.
