Babanro is shown having a family, with a wife and three kids. Even though he uses the money to fulfill their needs, there comes a time when Babanrao eventually uses starts spending on himself and neglects his family. He later realizes that if he doesn’t have his family, he doesn’t have anything.
2. Greed gets the better of you
Babanrao finds a place where a huge sum of money-belonging to someone else- is stored. He takes a swig at it the first time but keeps coming back for more. It’s Babanrao’s greed that eventually gets the better of him and clouds his judgement.
Babanrao is never satisfied with what he has. He is always craving for more and ends up landing himself in a situation where he has everything, except the people that matter to him the most. The film teaches an important quality of gratefulness and how all of us need to be more thankful for what we have first, instead of cursing our lives and wishing for more.
