Though the labour law prohibits employing children under the age of 14 years. Millions of children are made to toil. Working children of the world stand at 246million and India 134million Civil society did not take child labour as crime and hence it will grow and go on. Child labour is like the system of dowry. Both systems are prohibited but both grow. People’s mindset has to be changed.

Art can change the world and give a new vision. That is CheChe Che Che is the truth in Black and white and red all over Che Che also refuses class conflicts but raises a doubt in the adult viewer’s minds that they are responsible in freeing children.

Culture of liberation We intend to take Che Che to schools and colleges , institutions, organization, communities wherever people gather. screening as a an education through entertainment program . This idea envisages that Child labour should become a subject of syllabus for children the future citizens of India

Che Che actors The child actors in the film are those who have toiled from their cradle and are now liberated. They are appealing to you by their immense acting and communicative skills. They have also contributed to the production of the films in all its creative aspects. The journey is memorable than the destination.

Che Che Released in Hyderabad

On the 1st September 2009, Che Che was released at the press conference in Hyderabad with the message by Dr. Shantha Sinha, Chairperson, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights. She states; "Children are children wherever they are.The 'Bonda Boy' working in the hotels the 'mane bootha' working as domestic child labour and the 'rag pickers' in John Devaraj's film "Che Che" show their jest for life and fun.The pathos of their working conditions and yet their playfulness and the child's imagination has been so wonderfully captured in the film. We, as middle class, interact with these children in our daily lives so much, i am sure that the creative way in which John Devaraj has shown child labour in this film woudl sink into our hearts on how much we exploit our children and how awfully dependent we are on them. It is a brilliant film so Charlie Chaplinisque touching the heart of each of the viewers. It strikes the right chord of moral indignation. This must move us to action. Let me congratulate John and his team for this wonderful production. Prof. Shatha Sinha"

It is indeed demanding to show Che Che everywhere possible. Please help us to screen this film in your community, schools, colleges, corporates etc.
