Its been a while since we have posted a new film in our Sunday Shorts segment. But this week, we got a new short by writer and filmmaker Devashish Makhija. This film has Manoj Bajpayee in the lead, and he is in terrific form here, even if it is just a glance here, and a reaction there. Music is by Nucleya. Watch it.
And if you didn’t get the film, the description on the youtube page dissects it all. Here you go..
Head constable Tambe isn’t having the best of days.
His wife slams doors in his face.
His little daughter won’t speak to him.
His only friends, havaldaars Sawant and Shilwant, feel cheated by him.
And to make matters worse, he’s been given nightlong Ganpati visarjan bandobast duty.
The lights are blinding.
The drums are deafening.
His senses are being attacked from every which way.
Every screaming face seems to be mocking him tonight.
Until he snaps, plunges into the crowd, pulls his gun out, and as jaws drop around him…
he unleashes a TAANDAV!
