Our Production Process
A young lawyer, distracted with chasing success through his digital video channel, is approached online by an anonymous female victim with a powerful abuser. Will he do justice to the challenge?
Our short film ‘Vakeel Babu’ traces the journey of Shiraz Hassan as he rediscovers his purpose in the justice system. It stars Abhishek Banerjee (Mirzapur, Paatal Lok, Stree and more) in the titular role, and is directed by Sumit Purohit (writer of Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story).

Accessing Justice against Domestic Violence: Fiction,Webseries
What is the lived experience of people living in abusive homes? What are women’s challenges and motivations when taking action against domestic violence? Are there positive role model behaviours for bystanders or systemic stakeholders in supporting the survivors’ action journeys?
We are developing a fictional, long format web series that explores these diverse stories of women accessing justice against domestic violence, and giving survivors an imagination of what they can do to live a life without abuse.
