Reading Time: 1 minute

The current generation is at loggerheads with the previous ones. This is a fundamental truth that doesn’t lose its meaning as time goes by. This scenario then becomes ripe for coming of age films and short films that basically try to tell the other generation what being part of the current generation is.  In some cases, these films even let out an important message.  Ghumakkad is one of those films.

A young girl decides to take a much needed break, thinking that her problems will be solved all by itself. Finally, when she reaches home after a three-month hiatus, she learns the lesson that this film wants to carry with itself.

What’s Wow: The concept is good and so is the treatment. We liked the way the characters were interestingly written and it even broke clichés to an extent. A lesbian who didn’t look and act like one. A boyfriend who isn’t a dominating jerk, and a set of parents who have problems of their own. Ghummakad has some solid performances too.

The chaos logic in the short film actually tells us how the current generation is stuck between decisions and choices – and they don’t have much time to choose any.

What’s Blah: Nothing.

Parting Shot: Ghumakkad succeeds on many levels.
