Alaksha talks of the bravery of a photographer, when Mumbai braved the attacks of 2008. While he is still recuperating from an assault which broke his camera, he buys a camera from the goons.
This camera is proof of the death of an innocent. The young boy was found clicking images of the city, while the police were trying to maintain law and order after the blasts. And while plain questioning, he was hit hard on the skull.
What’s WOW? The camera works in the short film are just marvelous. And if you consider that this film was a college project, you are bound to agree that the cameraman deserves a standing ovation.
What’s Blah? Certain things are very obvious, like the person who dies in the police custody had to be a young boy. Did it add to the narrative of the short film, we don’t think so.
Parting Shot: The film is a one-time watch. Nothing that you can boast about in your friend/social circles.
