Director Statement

incidents such as fake encounters, life gets tough as they tend to face traumatic experiences and easily become victims of social stigma, thereby rendering their life impaired.

My short film "Punshi Soinaiba" (Impaired Life) is an attempt to experience their life journey in the wake of the traumatic events by portraying the real victims who have been yearning to get justice.

Little did they realise that their life will never be the same following the tragic death of their loved ones. However, the victims caught between life and death continue to live in despair as justice eludes them.
