Overprotective Indian mother--hysterical
4 June 2007 | by (Greenwich Village, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

Screamingly funny short. Santosh is in gym class and peeking as hunky Peter comes out of the shower. Santosh is embarrassed, but thinks he was not caught. As he's at his locker getting changed, Peter attacks, pins him down, and writes rude comments all over his body. Meanwhile, Santosh's mother, Kali Ma (a huge woman), is in the kitchen making an elaborate Indian mean while singing and dancing to a Bollywood soundtrack. Santosh comes home and goes right up to his room, refusing to eat. Ma goes up to his bedroom to see what's wrong, finds Santosh cowering in the closet, sees that he's bruised and marked up, and finds out who did it. Then, Kali Ma goes out for revenge.

After a program of rather serious shorts, this movie was such a relief and had everyone laughing loudly. Nice production values, good funny acting. Also, the director and handsome and articulate and I hope he goes on to bigger projects.
