Storyline

A young man in his haste to go some place takes two actions - he screams at his mother for making him late, and he lovingly appreciates his brother's painting. By doing so, he strikes off two cycles - one of frustration and sorrow and the other of love and joy. His mother vents out her anger on her maidservant. His brother gifts the painting to his girl friend. Thus begins the cycles of sorrow and joy, forming a Domino stairway, leading to an unknown doorway. After shaking hands with 15 other characters and traveling through 17 locations, in just two shots, both the cycles meet at the end in an attempt to give a logical understanding to the seemingly absurd human life. It's a humorous look at the bizarreness of the cosmic accident, otherwise known as life. Written by Cyclewala Productions

Great idea..great filmmaking!
1 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A brilliant concept brought to reel, this short film directed by Anand Gandhi(the man behind "The Ship of Theseus") in his initial days is a gem.It portrays how positive as well as negative energy has a cascading effect on every particle in universe whether it be a human being, a fruit or a bag.

The acting might not be top notch but the idea is very well conceived in each scene and by each character.The background score with two beautifully crafted songs- "Jheeni" and "Red Cherry blossom" add the spice.Brilliantly shot in two long shots,this award winning movie very well establishes the director as a good prospect for Indian cinema.
