Director's Note

The Industrial Revolution of the 18th century had shaken the base of the oldest of social institutions-The Family. With the advent of modern industrial times and the ever-growing challenges, the situation has deteriorated further, disintegrating the very fabric of the stable social systems of yester years. The modern man, in his marathon run for survival seldom realizes that his struggle for existence has surpassed human values and is directly heading towards Hedonism. Hunger for more income, higher social status, and more authority, at the end of the day renders him so individualistic that he does not give a second thought while abandoning his social obligations, human bonds and even his parents and children. The film wishes to make people realize that this social alienation will help no one. A golden mean has to be found between one’s ambitions and one’s human ties. What is to be kept in mind, however, is that within a family both parties have to work towards this - the children as well as the parents so as to be able to reframe the beautiful age-old ‘Family’.
