The plot of the film is mainly based on the camel's story, in fact it went onto become the first Indian film to feature camel in a prominent role. This is also the first kind of Indian film to reveal the exploration of the bond shared between a man and a camel.[5] A camel named Sarah from the state of Rajasthan was chosen to cast it in lead role when the shooting took place in Rajasthan.
