Eid has come early for me--Shorts is a treat of an evening out at the cinema. The past couple of weeks of Friday offerings have found us hunting for the script writer. In fact I was but one cimena excursion away from putting out posters offering reward money for the writers to come back. And then came Shorts where the script writer IS king, or queen when it comes to Annie Zaidi's brilliant Sujata that captures all the claustrophobia of an abusive relationship. Huma Qureshi continues to impress us, and never since Smita Patil's Mirch Masala has the humble Indian chilli played such a significant role.

They say that there are only seven basic plot lines to story telling, but the 80 minutes of "shorts" that are this Friday's fare remind you that no, there is so much more to this world. The five individual stories that make Shorts remind you of the miniatures that made the album muraqqa. They are rich, they are moving, they will make you think, and yes they will keep you riveted--and isn't that what cinema was supposed to be all about?

So whether it is Audacity's Bengali father who bullies his family in the evening , reading about Naxals in the morning papers, and a feisty daughter who may bring about a paribartan of her own, or if it is the opportunity to be a fly on the wall as Epilogue unravels the End of An Affair; we are in luck. In Muhafiz a funeral pyre attendant finds love at his workplace and Shor makes you realise love is never hanging up on each other. Also investing in a good pair of shoes, but mostly about keeping those lines of communication open.
