Director Sanjay Nayak told Odisha Bytes that the movie carries many social messages.
“It is based on the life and struggle of college-going students. While some become wayward, others manage to strike a balance and are able to fulfil the dreams of their parents. It is also a love story,” he said.
Nayak further said that the movie will help kill boredom among people, who have had to stay away from theatres amid the COVID pandemic.
“We are hopeful of getting commercial success with this movie released during Puja,” he added.
Nayak has also written the screenplay and dialogues of the movie produced by Sunil Kumar Das. S Ranjan is the cinematographer.
