What is ‘Kotti Paisa’? the coins of aluminum in circulation were banned in1998. The paisas like one, two, five, ten, twenty have received the blow like how demonetization happened recently.
The film ‘Kotti Paisa’ set in the late 90’s era has a point to make. The Lambani community in Karnataka had the habit of developing a cloth for presentation with the coins in circulation. It was a long time practice. When the paisas are banned and they don’t get it for their profession a pall of gloom surrounds the community. At this time the collection of paisas in fact becomes waste. A few more tragedies strike the key family.
