The film talks about how in India everyone wants to be light skinned, and how there is a sense of idealism and beauty associated with fair skin, whereas it is negativity and repulsion that is associated with dark skin.
In this film, a concept of brown number has been introduced. Every person is born with a respective brown number that corresponds to the shade of their skin: darker the shade, higher the brown number, lower the worth.
