We were teased by the character posters of Carbon from a long time and the time has finally come when we get the glimpse of the short film. It has been written & directed by Maitrey Bajpai and Ramiz Ilham Khan and has been co-produced by Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh and Gautam Gupta. Yes it happens very rarely that some major movie stars work on short films and increase its face value and the audience circle for which it’s made.
Starring Jackky Bhagnani, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Prachi Desai and Yashpal Sharma in the major lead roles, the film brings forth one of the biggest concerns of the planet and weaves it with a unique plot and storyline. Well we have been watching movies about this raising concern but all the major ones have been from Hollywood. Experimenting and making films or rather short films about issues like these is not a common thing in India. But the makers and actors working in the same are pretty excited about this one.
By now we all know the kind of movies Nawazuddin does and the roles he play, but in the short film Carbon he is playing the role of an alien who stays on Mars and the story is set in future. Jackie Bhagnani is from Earth where the only thing available in abundance is Carbon. The three minute trailer which just released will take you to the futuristic world of 2067, where Oxygen is a commodity and is sold like other daily use products Shampoo and other fmcg products.
Carbon will be released on Large Short Films’ YouTube channel. All we hope for now is a good story and a proper justice to the topic through the execution. We expect a lot from this Hindi short film and wish it manages to put the message across in the best way possible.
