Ahalya (2015)

Ahalya is a 14-minute suspense short from director Sujoy Ghosh. The characters names are loosely based on a tale from The Ramayana, the Hindu epic from India. However, there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. A review would have spoiled the entertainment so I decided to link the video directly. Watch it yourself! It has English subtitles embedded. Soumitra Chatterjee is as elegant as always and delivers a tremendous performance. It does take great teamwork to bring out such a gripping piece with few characters and almost a single room. My rating would be 9/10 because of the awesome twist (even for those who know the original story).
