The meticulous efforts of Dutaraj are evident in the character portrayal, cinematography, and scriptwriting of this musical endeavor. He interweaves the narrative with music in his unique storytelling style, complemented by Navin Gharti Magar’s direction and Anil Manandhar’s cinematography.

The central theme of the film revolves around the coercive involvement of young girls and women from marginalized communities in sexual activities for financial gain. While Dutaraj’s work has received both acclaim and criticism, many have praised the musical and vocal aspects while others scrutinize the depiction of real-life scenarios.
