An Anurag Kashyap directorial, the short film is a take on the life of a normal woman. The plot revolves around three women living in the same locality. Amid daily rape and molestation cases, these three ladies, fed up of being teased and molested by a group of men, decide to fight, physically. Which changes the 'everyday' to the day after that.
The film has a very generic storyline with even simpler execution yet it hits you hard. So hard that it will actually hurt. What the film deals with in its 20 minutes of duration, will make you go through a number of emotions, perceptions and relatable situations. The three women played by Radhika Apte, Aranya Kaur and Geetanjali Thapa give you a picture of helplessness and victory, one after the other. The casting is flawless. It is another win for Anurag Kashyap's realism and the story is crafted beautifully by Nitin Bharadwaj.
Everything in the film will make you judge the makers and their intent. It is open for a viewer to have a positive or a negative verdict but there is one thing that everyone will have the same opinion about- the way women suffer. It is a film that will ask you to have the courage to stand up for yourself as no one would. It will make you think about your everyday life and if there will ever be a day-after.
There are two kinds of short films: those that go into someone's portfolio and are meant to be pieces of art, and the other, which represent an honest attempt at unleashing a message with an intent to bring about change. This one is the latter. It asks you to take charge and not wait until someone else does.
