Description:
For children aged 7+ (in Hindi and English with Slovenian subtitles)

A comedy about a young boy's dream in an Indian slum.

Pichku lives in a shabby slum in Delhi, with no running water or sewage system. People defecate out in the open on railway tracks. The 9-year-old-boy is shy and dreams of his own toilet, a quiet, clean and colourfully decorated place. He will follow his dreams and spare no effort to get a toilet for his home with the help of his new friend.

"It's a film about shit. /.../ This was the most difficult film I ever made. /.../ I'm bringing something simple that people haven't seen yet regarding children's rights. While the world is going so fast, we should recognise simple, basic needs. Halkaa only sets one example. /.../ I can only hope that this type of children's cinema is effective not only in terms of entertainment, but also in making a child aware of its inner consciousness." (Nila Madhab Panda)
