Indian media is a cauldron of stories and concepts and we only need content producers who believe in bringing these stories to the fore. Ruskin Bond is one of India’s most celebrated authors and now there’s a film based on one of his short stories, Black Cat. The short film stars Bond’s close friend, Tom Alter, as Ruskin Bond and Shernaz Patel as Miss Bellows.
The story is an extreme fantasy which comedic overtures and works well as a naïve supernatural short film. Ruskin Bond, the character in the short film buys a broom, and is followed by a black cat to his home. After he takes in the broom, a mysterious woman, his neighbor confronts him, telling him that she is the cat’s owner.
What’s WOW: Then director succeeds in bringing the icy environs that Ruskin Bond sets the film in with great production values. Tom Alter is amazing as Ruskin Bond and Shernaz Patel as Miss Bellows looks equal parts charming as well as evil. We need more comedy/supernatural web films and series like these to
What’s Blah: We couldn’t find anything wrong with this short film.
