Having garnered worldwide acclaim and several international awards, Dhanak, produced by Drishyam Films, revolves around the eight-year old visually-impaired boy Chotu and his 10-year-old sister Pari, who has promised her younger brother, that he will be able to see by the time he turns nine. Cheerful, spirited and cheeky, Chotu is the life of his small village in Rajasthan, while Pari is his eyes and his best friend.

And so Pari sets out with Chotu on a magical road trip through Rajasthan where they encounter a motley bunch of characters.
