DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

JITU DAS

This film is an attempt to reflect the socio-economic differences found in developing cities in our country. It has come out of numerous personal experiences that I have faced over the years growing up in a city such as Guwahati. Therefore this film is my honest attempt to show such issues through the story of two young boys who are experiencing different versions of life while living in the same place.

Budget Breakdown

While Prikto isn’t a big-budget short film, we're committed to paying our cast and crew at least minimum wages, which means having a respectable budget. With our prior experience in making indie films, we know what it takes to create great content with limited funds. Each rupee goes directly to covering the cost of physically shooting the film, getting all the cast, crew, and equipment we need along with food, water, and COVID-19 Compliance Personal Protection Equipment. Our attempt is to make the shooting space as safe as possible while trying not to compromise on the quality of work that we make. We can’t say it enough, thank you for supporting this project.

Total Budget: ₹1,10,000
