Anu Aur Di

drama · Short Films · hindi

The film offers a very involving, skilled narrative that presents its many developments at a gradual, organic pace. The story is constructed with care, ensuring it remains imbued with thrill as well as a shocking progression of events in the most unexpected manner.

However, the world it conjures to share all of this with the viewer, at first glance, is far from it. It’s simply a conversation between two sisters until one realizes that the space is rife with resentment, bitterness, and a constant threat of violence.

Anu has walked out on her relationship in the middle of the night, asking her sister to come pick her up. Even in the face of the darkness of an empty, lonely corner of a street, or gawking strangers, or a little-too-inquisitive cops, she is undaunted. The same resilience is present in her elder sister as well. When these elements and characteristics are tied together neatly at the film’s conclusion, supplemented by the chemistry, and notable performances of the two actors, they present a story of far darker occurrences than the viewer might have expected at the beginning.
