Three Good Short Films

The first one is a 1964 short film – Two – by Satyajit Ray. It is supposed to be symbolic of war between America and Vietnam. The rich kid is said to be Raj Kiran, who later became a Bollywood actor in 1980s.

In 1964, renowned filmmaker Satyajit Ray was asked to create a short film for ‘ESSO World Theater’, a cultural showcase presented on television and funded by the American oil company Esso. Asked to write and direct the film in English, Ray opted instead to make a film without words. The result is a poignant fable of friendship and rivalry. As he did for many of his films, Ray composed the music for the film, including the haunting tune played on the flute. After Satyajit Ray was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 1992, the Academy embarked on an ambitious endeavor to preserve the works of the Bengali filmmaker. “Two,” also known as “Parable of Two,” is part of the Academy’s Satyajit Ray Collection

The second short film is Kriti – Written, Directed, Edited & Composed by: Shirish Kunder. But most likely it was a copy of some Western or Korean short film.

The third short film is Ahalya. Suspense, seduction, deceit. A perfect short which makes you want to hold on to your seat. An epic retold in a modern fashion. Watch this nail-biting thriller starring the legendary Soumitra Chatterjee directed by Sujoy Ghosh (who also directed Kahani and Badla).
