Director Statement

While the film deals with the implementation of government schemes, it is more about human humanity. No matter how good laws or plans are put in place by any system to bring about social and economic equality, it is all in vain if no responsible official acts in a transparent manner forgetting humanity.
We are all forgetting that everyone should extend a helping hand to the one who is really in need. But man is becoming selfish for his own benefit. The rights of others also play a negative role in giving it to him. All these shades of human attitude are presented in this film.
