5/5 - (1 vote)

Vantage Point proudly presents you an epid retold story of AHALYA (from Epic Ramayana) directed by Sujoy Ghosh (Kahaani movie fame) and starring the legendary Soumitra Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury and Radhika Apte, the 14 minutes short spins a web around seduction and deceit. This short film is produced by Royal Stag Barrel.

This is the best short film we have seen so far coming from an Indian Director. Seems like the concept was inspired from the movie Spoorloos. Still, something worth watching. Better than any bollywood flick of now days. The Indian Hitchcock (master of suspense) indeed weived an old tale from the Ramayana into a wonderful spooky take. Great KAHAANI, acting, audio and lighting.

Well, in case if any of you still confused what this is all about, here is the explanation : In the Indian Epic Ramayana, when Lord Indra comes to Ahalya dressed as his husband  and makes love to her, Ahalya, even being innocent was punished by her husband, Rishi Gautam for infidelity and was turned into stone.

And here, Radhika Apte in the role of Ahalya tried to take revenge from any man who tries to take advantage of her by turning them into stone. The main catch is, had if Inspector Indra not went back to take advantage of Ahalya,deceived as her husband, he would have been saved and not turned into stone. So every man who falls in the trap turns into stone.
