Short films are the best things to happen to films. But even the biggest fan of this format will agree that it is difficult to create iconic characters – or at least characters that stay with you with the small duration that the directors must work it. So, if a short film succeeds in creating even one such character, that is a success.
Meera is about a couple – married for ten years – who face problems when the husband decides to tell his wife that he has an affair with someone else. The wife now takes a decision that will change her life forever.
Meera is an interesting take on human relations, most importantly love. In an era when love is just another word for jealousy and dominance, it is refreshing to see a character that’s as pure as its forgiving. However, the audience will somewhere think whether this is just another film that glorifies female sacrifice and male domination. Whether that’s the idea or not, Meera is a character that remains with you long after the short film’s done and over with.
What’s Hot: The performances are good. Dialogues are an added advantage. The director taking a cue from the love story of Krishna and Meera seems thoughtful.
What’s Blah: Nothing
Parting Shot: This film is an interesting film on the romantic relationships of today.
Director: Sumit Kumar
Screened at Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival by Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films
