After sending away his 12-year-old son Siddharth for work, Mahendra (a chain-wallah who fixes broken zippers on the streets) is relieved – his financial burdens will be alleviated. But when Siddharth fails to return home, Mahendra learns he may have been taken by childtraffickers. 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.
“Much of the film’s success lies in the excellent script and the superb performances from his leading actors Rajesh Tailang and Tannishtha Chatterjee, who bring dignity to characters unschooled in coping with anything beyond their narrow world. They’re simple-minded in a nonpejorative sense, their utter helplessness in the face of such an impossible situation truly gripping the emotions.” (Jay Weissberg)
