    This is a nice short film indeed. I’ve watched the movie mostly a year back or so.
    Nice to read your post on the movie and the way you have connected the dots.

    • Thank you so much ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you liked it.

    Whoa! Its amazing. Watched the short film right away then read your post. Even i came up with the same deduction as u have. I can relate to you when u say “I didnโ€™t understand it then and I still donโ€™t understand it now.” That was my thought as well when i first came to know about this story through a movie based on ramayana.

  • Anupriya Gupta

    Your review motivates me to watch this short movie. Looks like it’ll be a lot of food for thought.

    • It will indeed be. Do watch and let me know how you liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Radhika Apte is a very strong actress. I would love to watch this short film.

    I saw this film a while back but never understood the mythological background. Very interesting

  • Sheethal susan

    I have watched his one purely because I love Radhika Apte. Such a graceful actor. She played her role really well and portrayed the message out too. ut should say now after reading your review I got much more clarity into the plot. Think I should read Hindu Mythologies too. Very detailed review. Loved it.

    • Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad it was insightful and motivating!

  • Neha Patwardhan

    I watched this short-film and thought it was amazing. I never liked the original Ahilya story as it just gave off the message that men can get away with anything!

  • Varsh

    I have seen this short film but had no idea of the story behind it. Really appreciate the research you’ve done and shared here. This is one of the best posts I’ve read recently.

  • Akshata

    I have watched this movie and it left with a longing for more. I dint know the mythological story. Your post gives me many answers

  • Agnivo

    An amazing analysis of Ahalya. Loved it.

  • Neha Gupta

    • Well, now you do. Do watch. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Nayantara Hegde-Karkhanis

    Oh this was such a spine chilling short film. I loved their take on it and the actress did such a good job of it. I love the perspective you have brought in. Something to think about.

  • Shalu Sharma Rathod

    I love this kind of movies. However with young kids my movie watching has drastically reduced. But I am tempted enough to watch this one

    • This is just a 12-minutes watch. You can catch it anytime when they’re not around. ๐Ÿ™‚


    I really want to watch this after reading your POV on it which btw is brlliantly reasoned!


    You really made the movie even more interesting.After watching the movie,I was just surfing through the the comments and I saw your reply below it.Then I happened to click the link and read the review.I would say itโ€™s really good.The way you see it.And the part saying โ€œA womenโ€™s dressing,smiling,is not an invitation to bedโ€is truly praise worthy.I wish a lot of people especially men read it.
    Hats off!

    It’s a very interesting short film. Based on an epic, it gives out a strong message.
