Ek Cup Chya’ (A Cup of Tea), a critically-acclaimed Marathi movie based on a commoner’s fight against the indifferent bureaucracy with the help of Right To Information (RTI) Act.

Kashinath Sawant, a State Transport bus conductor from a village in coastal part of Maharashtra lives with his family– wife Rukmini, old mother, two daughters Vasanti and Vanadevi and two sons Chandan and Abeer. The Sawant family suddenly is wrongly slammed with a huge electricity bill. They feel trapped by the circumstances and humiliated by the indifferent bureaucracy.
