1232 KMS is a 2021 Indian Hindi documentary film directed by Vinod Kapri. It relates to Indian migrant workers during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the shutdown on them. The film premiered on Disney + Hotstar on March 24, 2021.
In March 2020, India entered a nationwide lockdown to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. During that time, Kapri was helping seven migrant workers from Ghaziabad with food and other essential items. But they kept calling him after 3-4 days because they felt it was “embarrassing”. The next time the ration ran out, they decided to leave for their village in Saharsa, which was 1232 km from Ghaziabad. By April 27, seven of them had left. Kapri left with his assistant in a car the next morning and found them near Sambhal.
