Before we start with a list of some of the best Indian short movies, you should know that these precise films have created a lot of buzz in recent years. People love to watch short movies because they don’t have to wait for 2-3 hours to come across the outcome of the plot. Other than this, there are not so many characters to remember. The best part, these movies end within 15-30 minutes with an inspiring or a relatable message.
In this post, I have listed out some of the most popular or say best Indian short movies you will definitely going to like. Take a look:
- Chutney (2016)
An Indian wife just can’t take it when someone tries to steal her husband. In fact, she won’t mind being a badass when it comes to protecting the love of her life. Chutney is the story of a simple and soft-spoken housewife who catches a woman flirting with her husband in a club party. She doesn’t create any scene and rather invite her to her house for some chitchat.
That other woman goes to meet her without even realizing that she is going to have the most horrifying chitchat of her life. The ending of the story is extremely intriguing leaving everyone shocked and surprised at the same time.
- Ahalya (2015)
The character of Ahalya has already been mentioned in Indian mythology as the beautiful wife of a Maharishi. The concept is pretty much same in this short movie but the presentation and characterization is commendably different. If you are willing to watch a thrilling tale, then this could be the best pick for you.
- Khaney Mein Kya Hai? (2017)
Spoiler alert: this movie basically represents the hidden coitus talk between a mother and her newly-wed daughter. They’ve explained it quite well and without even mentioning words like sex, coitus or intimacy. This is the reason why I believe that this is one of the best Indian short movies you should not miss. The bold conversation is covered with the spicy food talk that would make you feel hungry at the very same time. Make sure you get some snacks while watching it. Lol!
- That Day After Everyday (2013)
Eve-teasing is such a pain and especially when no one really wants to listen to you. It is something that women have to deal with on daily basis unless and until they don’t fight against it. It is the story of three friends who are just sick of daily harassment and decide to join self-defense classes. But the decision day arrives right on the first day of their self-defense class.
