Chitti Hatia

Chitti Hatia, the story of Bittoo Sondhi, a Delhi based biker and his triumph over the unknown. Bittoo's father, at the age of thirteen, migrated to India during the partition. This 52 minute film explores the streets of Rawalpindi, to help Bittoo fulfill his fathers' long cherished dream of revisiting his birth place-a wish which could not be realized till his death. Bittoo however got an opportunity to fulfill his fathers dream when his cartoonist friend Sharad Sharma received an invitation to run a comics workshop in Lahore.


Once the workshop was over, both Bittoo and Sharad set out on a mission to search for Bittoo's ancestral house in Rawalpindi. Chitti Hatia is not just a search, but rather a chronicle which talks about partition and a family that was forced to migrate from Pakistan and as well helps to break the stereotypical image of Pakistan.

 

It takes the viewers on a journey across the border to show them that the people there are as friendly as they are on this side of the border-helpful, hospitable and compassionate.
