The film is based on a story of a guy who is into his adulthood but can’t leave his childhood. The film showcased the complications of an adult person belonging to the current generation.
How a person loses his/her childhood and got force to enter into the rat race of career-building, where everyone is running being clueless. Nobody cares about their child’s dreams and passion.
The major issue between the parents and children is regarding choosing their career. Every parent only wants to make their child to enter into a renowned typical career path.
Even in most cases, children choose the path that their parents want but later on, they can’t cope with the situation by losing interest in the path.
And in this film, Ved is exactly the child who also couldn’t cop up with his father’s choice and faced a huge break down in every steps of his life.
This also effects the mental health of a child and can create a dual complexity in his/her mind where one side they want to live the life they wanted, and on the other side they actually living some random garbage life.
In this film, there is a scene where Ved try to make their parent realize that they are doing wrong with his life. And trust me the scene is awesome and the heart of the whole film.
