Coming from the advertising background, this is Sundar’s debut as a film producer. “I have made several ad films with Rakesh Kudalkar, and I have seen it in him that he has a contemperory approach towards his story telling. Hence I found him the numero uno choice as the director for this film which reasonates with the masses and approaches several burning issues of the society”.

The film’s music is rendered by Vishal Jagdish, Choreography by Fulawa Khamker and is directed by debutant director Director Rakesh Kudalkar.

Sunder mentions, “We have taken famous youth icons of the Marathi film industry, like Neha Mahajan, Akshay Waghmare, Meera Joshi, Akshay Mhatre, Ketaki Kulkarni, Shashank Jadhav who are paired with veterans Vikram Gokhale and Satish Pulekar.

On asking Sundar how he selected this subject, he said, “Anand Nadkarni of A-1 studio recommended this interesting subject that eventhough various political parties have ruled the state, nobody has solved this agrarian crisis. The subject is need of the hour.”

It is an interesting story when a college reunion happens. This film gives a very strong social message to the politicians. A very hard hitting message to these politicians who have become immune to farmers sucides,” adds Sundar.

“Youth across various societies will relate to this problems as they will feel engaged. Lets garner the power of youth in this digital environment. Lets bring a change,” adds Rakesh Kudalkar, the director.

“You cant solve the problem by just donating the money. Hence, we are focusing two villages Pahadi Targar and Jivachi Wadi in Beed district,” Sundar said.

On summing up their project, they unitedly declared, “There is entertainment. There is a social message. Yet it doesn’t look preachy. Maybe, now we feel that producing this film is a way of Venting frustration against corruption in the system.”
