Review

4/5
A gripping drama that explores a perilous case of domestic violence.
Directed by Yogesh Subhash Ingole, from a script by Tiksha Rohilla, ‘Kashish’ is a short drama film that explores and unravels a perilous case of domestic violence. The film probes at viewer expectations throughout and is primarily centered around the autopsy of the victim. Set in India and filmed in the Hindi language, the short is well-constructed with a thread of suspense and curiosity from start to finish.

The 13-minute film opens with the post-mortem of the unknown victim. Viewers are teased with the backstory, a disgruntled husband and wife and their violent altercations. As the doctor examines the deceased, initially believed to be an act of suicide, signs of physical abuse become alarmingly apparent. The general assumption about the identity of the victim is contorted, as we learn the truth behind the death. Without spoiling the thrilling narrative, viewers are certain to be captivated and bowled over until the closing credits. A gripping watch.
