The five short films are ‘Sujata’ directed by Shlok Sharma, ‘Epilogue’ directed by Siddharth Gupt, ‘Audacity’ directed by Anirban Roy, ‘Mehfuz’ directed by Rohit Pandey and ‘Shor’ directed by Neeraj Ghaywan.

The trailer doesn’t show any differentiation between the five shorts. We’re treated to scenes from all the five shorts set to electronic ambient music.

The trailer immediately holds our attention when it shows an ant stuck in a bottle. From there the trailer goes on to show us different scenes, including, but not limited to, a girl with blue streaks dancing, Nawazuddin Siddiqui playing a beggar, Richa Chadda eating food off a plate on a man’s head and several others by employing sleek editing and fast cuts.

It seems like the audience will be treated to five riveting short films. The slick pace of the trailer hooks the audience and informs them of the type of content the five ‘Shorts’ will have. The trailer also creates a lot of curiosity and is tailor-made to connect to the audience.

‘Shorts’ produced by Anurag Kashyap and Guneet Monga will release on 12 July, 2013.
