Supported by Ekta Kapoor, Tahira Kashyap and Guneet Monga’s cinema collective Indian Women Rising, short film Bittu is their first attempt to promote Indian female content creators across the world
Bittu, based on the infamous incident which occurred in 2013 when few school children fell ill at a primary school in the village of Bihar after eating a Midday Meal contaminated with pesticide, tells the story of two friends which is cut short by the unwanted circumstances.
After impressing us with her versatile short films like Devi:Goddess and Pia, Karishma Dev Dube managed to pull it off effortlessly with the bold subject in Bittu. Bittu is a serious tale which has supported with beautiful cinematography, capturing the essence of Himachal Pradesh village. While editing and art direction were fine, background score is decent. Climax scene will leave you in splits as it is hard to digest.
The child actress, Rani Kumari, who plays the title role of Bittu gives a knockout performance with her natural performance. Saurabh Saraswat (actor who plays the teacher) and Krishna Negi (Principal) provides adequate support.
Overall, Bittu another winning shot from the house of Large Short Film. Good 3/5
