Set in a hamlet, the boy has a simple life. He spends time with birds and animals and exploring the nooks and crannies of the hamlet perched on the shoulder of his father. But his speech impairment isolates him and he is not admitted into the same school as children of his age.

He wrote, "Dedicating our first Marathi film 'BABA' to the person who remained steadfast in my life through everything! Love you Dad."

The film has been directed by Raj R Gupta from a screenplay by Manish Singh.

Speaking about the film, Raj was quoted as saying to Times Now, "I truly believe emotions have no language and this has been beautifully conveyed by the actors in our film. It is a bittersweet tale of how a family pursues happiness over everything"
