This is one of those shorts that sparks your curiosity and then just holds your attention from the very first shot where you stay with Fahim (Umit Ulgen) as his world opens up. It opens up only to reveal a smaller world and soon we are introduced to the other two characters, making up this triangle of desperate characters, Haashid (Ali Zaidi)and Nana (Yonah Odoom) wanting to survive, aiming for a better life. A beautifully told story and strong to boot, it takes you through the emotional roller coaster of plans and dreams to a complete implosion of said plans and dreams. The actors play brilliantly and are very watch-able. It was only when the end credits rolled that it hit me this was a one-shot, from start to finish, a nine minute story told in a long one-shot. The filmmaker (Shekhar Bassi) handles the material, the actors and the choreography of his film brilliantly. Just as the filmmakers behind Long Branch, Shekhar Bassi directs with a deft touch and has created a strong cinematic short film. The cinematography is beautiful and kudos to the DoP for the hand-held camera-work and use of natural light. The reason why I have only given it 9 out of 10 is because I desperately wanted to know what happens to the characters and we are left with a emotional cliffhanger. It deserves a ten but I will give it a 9 because I just wanted to know.
