Self-defense of women has gained some importance in the recent past, in the wake of increase in reported cases of sexual abuse. While women talk at length about how perpetrators should be punished whenever they do any harm to a woman, does their stance change when the perpetrator is their own kin? The recent short film Nitishastra tries to answer just that. Taapsee Pannu plays a self-defense instructor in the short film.
What’s WOW? The storytelling is sheer brilliant in this short film. The back and forth that happens throughout the short film is not confusing at all.
What’s Blah? Nothing that bothered us.
