Minu finds the killers. Lighthouse helps her in her search . The facts of the life of Mr Dutta , a political leader and a killer is not unknown to Minu anymore. She makes use of the social networking sites for all information.. What happens next is to be seen in the film…
Why did I make this film?
Indian philosophy says by living each day we eradicate our sins. What is sin? Is it denying the truth? We do it almost everyday. We do it for our smooth living. Yet we prefer to be called human -beings. I have tried to search for truth about justice in this film , in my own way. The Indian myth speaks of Gods being born twice, as Ram and Krishna. There is also Shiva — the omnipresent! My film in a way is his search with a belief that justice will prevail.
