Policeman Special

By Aryan Pushkar with 6.9

drama · Short Films


The film exhibits a dedicated attempt to weave a narrative of mystery and thrill, complete with dim lighting, predominance of a scarlet palette, internal demons of characters, past traumas and unexplained disappearances. Staying true to the genre of a psychological thriller, it adds layers and textures to the story by concealing as much as it reveals. The plot continues to thicken as a police officer and his partner attempt to unravel the mystery of the disappearance of two men after being sighted last at the restaurant of the third pivotal character of the narrative.

After that, the film takes you on an intriguing journey that includes mental health struggles of the leading officer, and the manner in which they come to affect the investigation is notable. All of it plays out against the background of a restaurant flourishing in its business of pork chops (and more). However, when the climax and conclusion finally arrive, will the viewer have the stomach for it?
