However a few good shots can be seen in this short film…

‘KADWA SACCH’ (BITTER TRUTH)
Director: Dhirendra Singh
Dur:07.18 mins
Government apathy and cockeyed land procurement policy of compensation uproots the labor and drives him towards destitution. The biggest irony is the man who builds the houses for the rich urban population has no roof over the head for his children. A coarse coconut rope is the life line of safety for his child living by the road side. He ties the child to a pole while he is out for work. Any form of government sop doesn’t reach the poor. Corrupt middlemen make the situation from bad to worse and there is no hope in the eyes of these millions of labors who have been displaced by the rapid unplanned urbanization. There is a poignant question raised at the end of the film. “Will the country be tied to these shackles forever?”
