Preface to the title
March 8, World Women's Day — Greetings to all!
Just as men play multi-purpose roles in society, women too play their parts in all aspects of our existence. Due to the nature of societal evolution women sometimes find themselves at a disadvantaged position despite their vital roles as sometimes mothers, sometimes sisters, sometimes lovers, sometimes wives. So, it is the responsibility of all of us together to promote respect and create a safe environment for every woman.
It is the duty of the country and the nation to protect their citizens who show courage by exposing and protesting violence and discrimination towards women.
"SHIKAROKTI — The Confession" is our way of trying to convey a possible scenario, a moment in time, with a positive outcome despite girls facing adversities due to their position in society and a lack of awareness and more importantly a lack of a systematic support network, that is more common in every corner of the world than we would like to think so otherwise.
Our effort in this film is to depict a story of such a brave woman, who stands against violence and crime and by pure chance averts the troubles that she gets herself into when trying to do the right thing.
The title's theme is presented as a work of fiction in an entertaining but meaningful way.
I hope you all like it.
