Bonded labor or debt bondage is the worst form of exploitative employer-employee relations that exist. The workers are trapped into forced labor using the bait the debt bondage. According to various research studies, bonded labor prevails mainly in agriculture, rice-mills, domestic service, brick kilns, stone quarries and sericulture. Currently, the trends are changing, with new forms of bondage coming into existence. In Bonded Labour system a worker casts her/his labour against an advance. Beyond extreme economic exploitation in the system, employer wields absolute physical and psychological control over the bonded labour sapping all humanity from the labourer. In 1976, Government of India came up with Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act to declare the freedom of bonded labourers, a unique form of slavery. How this Act of 1976 translate into practice? Where and in what condition are the released bonded labourers and their families? Shot in Madhya Pradesh of India, 'Azadnagar' attempts to capture life after release. 'Gulamnagar' is shot in Rajasthan and attempts to capture the situation of existing bonded labours.
