Director Statement

Vakeel Babu tries to highlight the interaction between the justice system and victims of domestic violence. A lot of times, the conversation only revolves around the written law rather than the human interactions. Improving access to justice is not just about explaining victims the law, but also understanding where they are coming from and how one must deal with them.

The story we are dealing might be very local in its milieu but it addresses a global issue. We understand that films might not always have the solutions to the problem, but as a filmmaker, it's important that we keep asking the right questions, and tell stories which can at least start a debate.
