User Reviews

 
Full-fledged thriller.

The short film shot by Anurag Kashyap is a fine piece of thriller. Much has to be attributed to the dark type of cinematography and little haunting visits of the lead character to strange places at unusual times. The soundtrack too is good to spice up the taste. The story revolves around a scientist who is very much obsessed on creating a medicine. He goes through all measures to prove his hypothesis. The story evolves with some more supporting characters and you are definitely in for a treat in the end. Kay Kay Menon performs a satisfactory job as an obsessed scientist. The acting by the supporting cast was OK.

PROS:

Even though it is a short film, it manages to haunt you in some of the scenes and especially in the end. You will be glued to it till the end. The film is a good example to aspiring filmmakers about getting ideas for their features.

Message: "Sense and maturity is necessary."

Verdict: "A Recommended watch."
