Storyline

After sending away his 12 year-old son Siddharth for work, Mahendra (a chain-wallah who specializes in fixing broken zippers on the streets) is relieved as his financial burdens will be alleviated. But when Siddharth fails to return home, Mahendra learns he may have been taken by child-traffickers. With little resources and no connections, he travels across India in pursuit, with the hope that whatever force arbitrarily took his child away will return him unharmed. Written by Anonymous

Engaging simple but powerful script
29 May 2015 | by tarun208See all my reviews

Very good film, brilliant actors, simple but powerful script, a good story with a strong message. This is a low budget film which is an inspiration to budding filmmakers that anyone doesn't need 100 crores to showcase the talent and create a good film. Just relax and watch as it will take you away from your world while you forget about your own worries for time being and start praying for the family you are introduced to. It's equally lighthearted entertaining flick while conveying a relatively heavier message. It also conveys we don't take care of precious things until we loose them or are at the verge of loosing them. It also showcases that the life must go on despite of any major setbacks and heartbreaks. Available on Netflix!
