Human Trafficking and Other Global Issues in Film
What has to do with knowing who your biological father or mother is when you are an adopted child is the unpredictability of the reactions of both the parents and the son or daughter. There are so many unanswered questions the child might have about the reasons that led to the decision to place the child for adoption.
Sometimes foster children have this idea of what their biological parents would be like, often creating a fantasy character that is difficult to fulfill. Foster children are often disappointed when interacting with their biological parents because their expectations are too high.
In rare cases, things can go wrong when foster parents are overly trusting of birth parents. This conflict is at the center of the film Malaikottai. The main character contacts his biological father, only to find out later that he is a human smuggler, only to get one of his goods. Her adoptive parents then have to go on a mission across the country to rescue her. The film is currently in production and will be out next summer.
Overpopulation and poverty are two consequences of these two issues. India, if it maintains its current pace, will overtake China as the world’s most populous nation in 5 years. This can pose significant issues for both food security and national security. The emerging middle class and growing economy will give way to a more prosperous country and environment to raise a family. The concern about overcrowding is the fact that more foster children will be left without parents. This is because when parents are unable to provide for their family, they make the best decision for their child and put him up for adoption.
The locations for this shoot will be Chennai and Mumbai, and there are rumors that there will be a beach scene in Goa, but it depends on the budget. This is one of the first films to address the topic of adoptive parents and human trafficking, topics that some say are not discussed in Indian culture.
