Lesson of the film
Life reminds us about a behavior or a decision making of a lizard during a rain day
“When it rains the monitor lizard runs from tiny drop of rain and plunges into a river to avoid getting wet.”
This reminds us sometimes you can run from single problem and drown into many problems. Anyone can run away, it's super easy. But when you stop run the problems will still be there waiting for you. The Best thing is Facing problems and working through them, that's what makes you strong.
Message of the film
The story tells the love and Poverty, alcohol abuse and violence and we expect this film to be the entertainments and leaning field.
In this Film we learn about the violence, Sexual abuse women go through in our society where by on side of women there are already some NGO’s and Government support on eradicate women abusing, with all effort invested by the Government and NGO’s still in some areas especially in rural and slums women abusing taken as normal.
With remembrance always the coin has two sides, the film had open an Eye on Men Violence were` by even Men been abused by women though not many of them can admit it publicity on what abuse they have been facing. Since society especially in Africa don’t take men abused as normality, recently it happened that lots of Men facing lots of socio-abuse which affects them psychologically as resulting many of them facing depression which forcing them on taking hard decisions such as suicide or homicide, murder-suicide etc
