Based on a true story, the film delves into the horrific crimes committed by a serial killer in Lahore in 1999. Confessing to the murders of 100 young boys, this chilling tale has garnered international recognition. It premiered at a film festival in the United Kingdom and earned a coveted spot at the esteemed Berlin International Art Film Festival.

Director Abu Aleeha clarified the reasons behind the decision to change the film’s title. Concerns were raised that the original name, “Javed Iqbal”, could be misinterpreted as glorifying the character. Aleeha emphasized that the film’s purpose was never to glorify Iqbal or his abhorrent crimes. Instead, the intention was to raise awareness and prompt individuals to identify child abusers while taking measures to safeguard children.

Aleeha confirmed that the changes made to the film were primarily focused on additions rather than cuts, resulting in a runtime extension of approximately ten minutes. Following a preview of the film, the censor board recommended the inclusion of a message at the end to further reinforce its purpose.
