The film is primarily based on a quick story titled I am the son of an expat written by Sainuddin Qureishi in 2011. The story has been adapted in numerous mediums such as a broadcast on Asianet Radio. The Malayalam film Kadalazham (Depth of the sea) portrays an expatriate explaining his life to his loved ones members which is far disjointed from the reality. The story unfolds how the death of the protagonist reveals a larger truth of the loved ones and life in basic.
Director Akbar mentioned, “Ever because I study the story, the plot had been haunting me. It is a human interest story and the struggles of thousands of expatriates operating abroad. Oman is the greatest hub for shooting owing to the diverse landscape.
“The cooperation we received from Muscat airport authorities, Muscat Municipality, and support of the Royal Oman Police cannot be forgotten.”
He mentioned the challenge was telling the story of 3 expatriates in significantly less than half an hour with out losing the depth of feeling. The 3 characters in the story are portrayed by Vinod Manjeri, a stage and screen artiste, Kabeer Yousuf, a journalist, and Ashiq Rahman, a budding actor and a singer.
The film has been created by Dhufaiyil Anthikkad.
