Increasing use of Internet has lead to the evolution of movies that are made with the fraction of budget and in less of that time compared to the big-cinema movies. Short movies provide the amateur filmmakers and actors to showcase their talent and skills before having their big-break.
However there are some short films that had broke the stereotypes and have created a bench-mark for others to follow.
Here is the list of short films that we found were exceptionally brillant :-
It is based on child labour which is a burning issue in India. In this movie we tried to show the difference between an educated child and an uneducated child. A boy who works at tea stall with his father. He goes to school but not to study, to serve tea. On the other hand a boy who is from good family. He goes to school but always gets late. There is one situation in the film where they both children have to face each other then you get to know what happen in the end of the film.
