Windows, one of the largest production houses in eastern India, has come forward to speak for himworkers with its fifth short film Kajol Mashi from the Lockdown Shorts series. Written by veteran director Nandita Roy, ‘Kajol Mashi’ is the story of a mother whose son is a migrant worker, living in Dharavi, Mumbai. Kajol Mashi highlights the plight of these neglected migrant workers; It is a matter of worry and grief that their families are struggling every day.
After ‘Shilpi’, Nandita Roy has written a human story with the message of extending her hand to help and help us in our time of need. Talented mother-son duo Khyali Dastirdar and Aditya Sengupta were the lead actors who have given exceptional performances in the film.
