Documentaries are different in nature, as they need a particular topic to explore, supported by facts and research. There is a load of initial preparation to be done before you go into conceiving the outlines and moving onto scripting mode. The idea generated after a film was shot by Mehreen Jabbar with Nandia Das as a lead. The film is based on a true story of a boy who inadvertently crosses the border between Pakistan and India and the ordeal his family has to go through that follows.
We filmed this documentary for our client Geo TV Channel before they launched the film Ramchand Pakistani. They wished to educate the audience on this issue, and make aware of the danger people face, knowingly or unknowingly while crossing the border. During shoot we met the real people of Thar on whom the characters of this film is based.
