Short films have the capability of depicting the realities in their own specific way. Dum Dum Dumroo, despite its eerie feeling manages to capture a strong emotion, which often is not addressed by the mainstream media.

The short starts with Dr Sneha, played by Sanaya Irani, the new recruit at a hospital. She joins the Children Ward, where she encounters a peon Dumroo, who acts weird in front of her.

Dumroo’s weirdness doesn’t end with acting funny in front of Dr Sneha, she also finds him watching porn in the hospital. When she manages to complain about Dumroo’s behavior to her hospital seniors she is shocked.

What’s WOW? The short film manages to scare you as much as Dr Sneha is scared. All credit goes to Anil Charanjeett who performs the stalker act to a tee.

What’s Blah? Dum Dum Dumroo is slightly flawed in execution. While Anil’s Dumroo is a bit messed up in the head, because of the problems in his personal life, his actions – after a certain level – seem just unexplainable. Maybe, in execution, Dumroo could have done away with some of his scaring tactics. But overall, the film establishes Dumroo’s problems and his weird attitude (in accordance with his life woes) pretty well. So, it is a win-win situation for the film that ways. Apart from that, there’s no flaw that you may find in the short film inspired by true incidents.

Parting Shot: Dum Dum Dumroo successfully manages to establish that looks can be deceptive; and also that you have to ask to know the answers in life. If you like short films with a light message, you should give this short a try.
