Film inspired by his own life, says director Vinothraj

Director Vinothraj’s first feature film is inspired by an incident from his own life. His sister’s husband was an alcoholic and due to this she was thrown out of her drunken husband’s house, and she had to walk miles for shelter.

“The self-taught Vinothraj has given us a film which is spare, sparse, and yet consistently engaging. It leaves you with much to think about, about how, sometimes, a pebble can save a life,” Subhra Gupta of Indian Express wrote about this film.
