Inspiration: Kolkata will soon ban handpulled rickshaws Is this a move to liberate the oppressed from their yoke or just a clumsy attempt by the communists to eliminate an eyesore that is also a highly effective market based response to current transportation inefficiencies This film is a document about this uncertain fate of the Kolkatas hand rickshaw pullers

Nice document of the rickshaw puller's fate. Very well done....best wishes 
Good reminder that sometimes even the most lowly job has some merit. I wonder what these men will do to care for their families when this law is enacted. 
I have a hard time believing that these 108 votes are genuines... Your film is interesting but not to the extend of accumulating more votes than all the other contestants togeter... Really ! Entry like ''The big pit'' or ''Loosing a daughter'' are more significant...  
Very well done....Nice document of the rickshaw puller's. But tell me something Abhijit, the previous comment was kind of right. It's very hard to believe that 108 members of Filmaka have vote fo your documentary. You must have a lots of friends or a very large family !  
Its a good film my friend. I have visited kolkata last year and know the condition very well. You have done very good job. What will these people do after the ban? If it is banned then a tradition will fade away from this world. Lets see what happens... 
This film deserves to win. A film is a mirror of the society and it should act to awaken the sleeping society and not to entertainment some fun loving people. I find this film a very good example. My best wishes is with you Mr. Abhijit... 
I totally agree with the comment below. I hope this documentray wins.
