Kajol has finally made her digital debut with the short film, Devi and it is sure to stir your emotions.
Kajol’s debut short film, Devi, was released a day ago and it is winning over the audience’s hearts with its amazing portrayal of the society’s ugly reality. Talking about one of the most tragic realities of our society, the short film highlights the social evil that has ruined thousands of lives in India and all over the world – rape.
The short film directed by Priya Banerjee also stars Neha Dhupia, Neena Kulkarni, Shruti Haasan, Mukta Barve, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Sandhya Mhatre, Rama Joshi and Yashaswini Dayama. Every woman featured in the short film represents women from different walks of life and the background or stories tied with them are gut-wrenching. Without any graphic imagery or without even uttering the word – rape. The well-written and well-delivered dialogues are enough to stir your feelings and remind you of the rage that watching incidents such as these flash on the news often. Without revealing too much about the end, all we can say is, you feel a lump in your throat as it brings us face to face with the horrendous reality we live in.

#Devi makes you question everything you are working towards. It will leave you with tears and anger.
We might call ourselves strong and independent women but end of the day we are just as helpless and scared. In which direction is the country progressing? https://t.co/4jkX1q3U52

When a 'short' film, makes an impact that is going to last 'long'. A harsh and painful reality depicted in a very well written and directed film. This 13-minute film has delivered what a 2-hour movie might not able to. @LargeShortFilms, outstanding !
