An Arowana Studios presentation, produced by Prince Thampi and Directed by Unni Vijayan , this adaptation of Anita Nair's book, by the same name, is a gripping and heart warming story of redemption, forgiveness and second chances.At the heart of the story is a single father, J.A. Krishnamurthy or JAK, as he is fondly called, played effectively by Adil Hussain; the story is woven around how JAK relentlessly follows a trail left by delicate clues to find out how his teenage daughter, Smriti (played by debutante, Maya Tideman) ended up on a hospital bed, almost dead. Helping JAK in his chase is a single mother Meera (played by Roshni Achreja), who is unable to make sense of her husband's callousness; he walks out on their marriage, out of the blue, leaving her to bring up their two growing children and care for her aging mother and grandmother, all on her own. Fate brings two searching souls in JAK and Meera together.It is JAK's desperate attempt for closure on a gruesome incident affecting his daughter and his need for redemption that takes both Meera and him through a rocky trail that turns his life upside down. In the event it gives JAK a peek into his daughter's world. The subplot, subtly touches the subject of female foeticide and how fiercely guarded the issue is.
