The documentary was very well directed. Urban folk music is not very popular in india, many people still don't know exactly what it is. Mr. Susmit has sung and composed so many beautiful songs. All his songs i heard in the film were awesome. From this film people can relate what Urban folk music is all about. Mr. Susmit's life is an example for our youngsters that you don't need money or fame to become a singer. Singing is an art. And if you are an artist you can give it any name like Mr. Susmit bose did.- Aditi Deb

Susmit Bose is a pioneer of Urban Folk Music who has focused on the need to get indulged in musical intercourse for the people who have migrated to cities for a better life. In course of migration, they also had their musical instruments with them and some of them had been laborers, while some of them had been educated persons turning their fate into laborers.
His songs condemn the hiking rates of child labor as well; 'Who is to be blamed' and 'Do you hear the children' are two songs featuring this issue. Apart from this, he had stood strong with his single ' Winter Baby' in 1970s that echoed an awareness against child molestation and abuse.
