In the video, the lead actress Vidya Balan is seen giving the kid a head massage. How the casual conversation between the son and mother became a thought-provoking one is the essence of this clip.
Produced by Ronnie Screwvala & Vidya Balan and directed by Shaan Vyas, Natkhat is a 33-minute short that underlines that home is where we learn the values which shape us and make us who we are. A story framed within a story where a mother (Vidya Balan) notices her young, school-going son Sonu (Sanika Patel) gravitating towards misogyny and disregard for the other gender just like the men in her family. Vidya Balan, who turned producer with this film, is seen playing the role of a homemaker in a patriarchal setup. The film touches upon the sweet mother-son relationship, which quivers with each blow, and settles with a soothing touch.
