About the film
Manja and Ravi, two dalit kids live in a tiny village in the western ghats. Vaasudeva, a kid from an orthodox brahmin family wants to be friends with them. This leaves Manja and Ravi in a conflict with their daily lives.
This film is a story from the village I was born and brought up in. Caste struggle is still apparent in many parts of India, and my place is no exception. The film is based on a short story, and some of my childhood experiences. All the actors in this film are non-trained actors. All of them are my villagers. Even my grandma and my relatives acted in this film.
