Mumbai: Kriti, a short movie, released on June 22 on YouTube, is certainly a short film which does not fall short. Being a suspense-thriller, we would not reveal to you much of the plot.
The movie starts with the scene of Sapan, played by Manoj Bajpayee, sitting with his Psychiatrist and childhood friend, Kalpana, played by the actor Radhika Apte. He tell her about the girl, Kriti (Neha Sharma), whom he met a month ago.
He further tells her how they ‘clicked’ and she’s moved in with him. Dr Kalpana asks him to show a photo of her or any other way by which she could see her. Manoj Bajpayee tells her that Kriti suffers from Agoraphobia, fear of stepping out of the house and of people, due to which she stays in home only and is not even on social media.
Kalpana fears that this is also Sapan’s imaginary friends, as a similar thing had happened earlier wherein he had told her about a girl Rachana, who was only a figment of his imagination.
How things go after this brings the turning point in this short movie. Some scenes do send chills down the spine. How the movie unfolds keeps you engrossed for the entire 19-minute duration of the movie.
However, after flops such as ‘joker’ and ‘Tees Maar Khan,’ ‘Kriti’ does give scope to Shirish Kunder for a comeback in the industry.
