Nayantara's Necklace

drama · Short Films · hindi

Marriage can often be hollow in more ways than one and the short fim gives a sophisticated glimpse into these complexities. When a simple, middle-class housewife finds herself befriending the confident Nayantara, distinguished by her location in society, a parallel world of Chardonnay and expensive vacations is suddenly revealed to her.

But beneath the shininess of this superficially glamorous world lies a murkier reality, very expertly delineated by the narrative. The story-telling is further enhanced by the performances and the most elegant visuals employed in developing the narrative. The short film delves deeper to reveal the lovelessness of a marriage, the crushing weight of financial strain and a desperate attempt to fit in. As the protagonists look for an escape in each other's lives, where will this path of temporary pleasures and denial lead them?
