One of the most widely seen Indian short films of recent times, Sujoy Ghosh's Ahalya has garnered more than 4.5 mn views already. A twisted take on the myth of Gautama Rishi & Ahalya, the film has all the elements that make a short film worth watching. An interesting premise, intrigue and a last minute twist in the tale, Ahalya has it all.
Watch it if you haven't seen it already and you will know what we are talking about.
When we recently spoke with Ghosh about his thought behind the short, here's what he had to say;
"I didn’t want to make a short film. I wanted to make a film which will raise questions, which will be intriguing, something that will be discussed beyond its existence.
The story has a little bit of magic, little bit of surrealism and various kinds of emotions in one story – greed, love, morality, intrigue, all these fell into place. I am sure some other story could have done equally well, but by turning my story a little, audience might just enjoy it."
And now, thanks to the good guys over at MoiFightlub, we have the script of the film for you. Read how a great short film looks like and you may learn how to write one.
