A gritty, uncompromising short film from India
6 June 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"The Bypass" is a beautifully shot short from India based on a simple premise. This dark tale of life in the desert takes no prisoners - life is shown as cheap and the director delivers an uncompromising story in a stylish manner.

A major achievement, this short uses no dialogue or subtitles, it relies instead on the performances of its small cast to deliver the story.

While short in length, this film is recommended viewing.

8 out of 10. With this short film under his belt, surely it's only a matter of time before we see another project from director Amit Kumar?
