All the characters in the film were designed by keeping in mind all the typical daily commuters to will bump into in India. The gestures and behaviour of the 3 main characters in shot 1 i.e the office guy, the old man and the environmentalist were designed keeping the following points in mind.
1. Office guy: He represents the largest public transport user section, the working middle class. He is always angry because the buses are late and he has to bare the brunt of it at office. He has no option but to continue using the bus because of the rising fuel prices.
2. Old man: Represents the elderly commuters who want to be independent but are too old to operate a private vehicle.
3. Environmentalist: The people who are trying their best to spread awareness but give up due to the quality of the system.
