Modern day life has brought comfort to mankind, but it has certainly come with a cost. Running behind fame, name and money has been adversely affecting one of the most important pillars of life - relationships and most importantly the family bondage, which held us all together for ages.
Director Nikhil Manju Lingaiah's 'Ammana Mane’ throws light on one such sensitive issue, which the present day generation is dearly neglecting.
“it is about relationships, and more about the special bond of a mother and a son. It is disheartening to witness the rise in number of old age homes, as many children are swaying away from their responsibilities.

Ammana Mane is about a physically and mentally challenged person, and how he strikes the right balance in life with his three mothers, the one who have given birth to him, his wife and the third being his daughter.
