When the trailer of short film Devi was released we thought that it would revolve around an NGO where women from different backgrounds come and stay together. The trailer showcased how the female characters were fighting for space in a room.
But when we watched the whole short film, we were left surprised. Priyanka Banerjee has written and directed Devi and we must say that it is a fantastic concept that has been made into a wonderful short film. This is one of the most relevant short films that we have seen in recent times. It talks about one of the biggest issues in our country, the crimes against women. We are sure the last scene of the short film will get tears in your eyes and will also give you goosebumps.
It features many actresses like Kajol, Shruti Haasan, Neha Dhupia, Neena Kulkarni, Mukta Barve Shivani Raghuvanshi, Yashaswini Dayama, Sandhya Mhatre, and Rama Joshi. All of them have done a great job. Each and every actress gets a chance to shine. A perfect multi-starrer.
While Devi is a short film, it would be great to see a feature film made on the same subject.
A Must Watch!
