"Raak" is a story about hope, love, hatred and despair. You will actually feel all these emotions as well, in this 9 minutes long, short masterpiece. And because of the length, this review might seem a bit vague at first, since I will not tell you one single word about the story itself.
I will just describe the main character, and try to prepare you for your 9 minutes long amazing trip.
In the only 4-5 or so minutes you get to know "Rik", you'll probably feel sorry for the kid the first few seconds, followed by constant anger, a sort of hatred, for the kid. What a little brat.
But in the scene with the dinner table, lasting only about 30 seconds, you immediately feel sympathy for him. The line he delivers, only 5 words long, will have such an impact on you. You feel his pain, you can guess his past, his hatred, his despair, you get it, you understand it now.
And that's only "Rik", we also get too know two other people, one very close to "Rik", the other because of only one incident. You'll have to judge these two characters in less than 3 minutes. His hope, her despair, good or bad, you decide.
The conclusion will leave you haunted.
This short masterpiece is strongly recommended.
