Everything from marketing to the screens needs to be apt for these small gems to make some money," said B L Gautam, who is distributing the film under his Easel Films banner.

The film, which marks the directorial debut of Ashim Ahluwalia, was first screen at the Cannes film festival in the Un Certain Regard category. It also travelled to Dubai International Film Festival and Mumbai International Film Festival.
