The Director’s Thought
My intent is to encourage the HIV positive people to live a life of courage and resilience and at the same time to break the social taboos associated with it. For a person who had grown up with a passion for cinema, it is needless to explain how strongly I feel to carry socially meaningful message and that too with a sense of urgency. I have spent more than two years in research, in writing and rewriting the script, by spending time with AIDS patients, rather victims of the disease, and voluntary workers dedicated to the cause of fighting the menace. The script is tilted towards the central character, who is a woman and a victim whose struggle only shows a need to live life against the odds including multi-faceted ostracism which may echoes true life stories. In patriarchal set up, women are put to great ordeal and hence, my film is made to capture parallel issues documenting a number of key events. The goal of the film is to tell a human story of passion, devotion, courage and expression in life, of leading life and of overcoming fear in living one’s precious life.
