Bhuvan Bam’s Plus Minus Short Film Review
Plus Minus have a tagline that “Every Minus is a half of a Plus” which is true mathematically and true aspect of life. Directed by Jyoti Kapur Das has done a very good effort as a debutant. She has worked previously in Award Winning Short Film “Chutney” as a writer in also ALT Balaji’s Series “Bose: Dead/Alive”. She has taken a project that no mainstream Bollywood filmmakers had touched.
Baba Harbhajan Singh is a story that every Indian should know. The role played by Bhuvan Bam as the first time in a short film. He has done web series with Happy Fii and The Viral Fever. This time out of the funny vines he has shown some shuttle work in a very good and realistic manner. Next is Divya Dutt as a traveler who feels irritated about her mother-in-law. Her comic style and timing say that she one of the best veteran actress we had over the years. Raj Singh Chaudhary as the husband of Divya Dutt makes his presence well.
Talking about the technical aspects Editing and Cinematography is really top notch. Chirantan Das and Akshara had done an excellent job in their respective field. The last 5 minutes of the film will hold you and the suspense you wouldn’t believe.
