ZEE5 unveils trailers for all nine short films in its upcoming ZEE5 Short Film Festival, each more alluring than the next
We, at LetsOTT, had earlier informed our readers about the ZEE5 Short Film Festival, scheduled to premiere on ZEE5 on the 15th of April. There are nine short films that will debut on the streaming platform as part of the festival, each of a diverse genre, and made by nine different directors. None of the short films has streamed anywhere as of now, so the ZEE5 festival will be their digital premiere of sorts.
Over a span of two days, ZEE5 has released the trailers of all the nine short films to feature in the festival. Each movie has its own trailer, and it must be said, judging by the intriguing trailers, each movie seems to be more alluring than the next.
Rajeev Khandelwal and Anupriya Goenka look in splendid form in the sensitive and touching trailer of their short film, Heartbeat, while, in total contrast to the above, the trailer for Sumeet Raghvan and Hruta Durgule-starrer Strawberry Shake is breezy and feel-good.
The trailer for the short film Second Hand shows Abhishek Banerjee at his devilish best, with Parul Gulati looking ravishing as his friend's young bride. The trailer for How About a Kiss, shows Rajat Kapoor in a suave avatar as Ritabhari Mukherjee's professor, who soon becomes her friend, guide, and...something more?
The trailer for Rashi Mal-starrer Food For Thought reveals a premise that is thought-provoking and eye-opening. And judging by the trailer of Rhea Chakraborty and Manjot Singh's Boom Boom, it seems designed to deliver a hefty dose of laughs.
The trailer for Svah, starring Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rajit Kapur and Shilpa Tulaskar, doesn't reveal its actual premise, but it does leave us intrigued about the plot. Season's Greetings, starring Celina Jaitley and Lillette Dubey, comes across as a poignant and moving narrative about a mother-daughter duo.
Lastly, going by the trailer, the most intriguing of them all seems to be Vikrant Massey and Naseeruddin Shah's Half Full. The trailer doesn't reveal much, but it does give the discerning a hint of what it is about. And, it gives you goosebumps...
The trailers for the nine short films have definitely amped up the intrigue and excitement for the ZEE5 Short Film Festival no end. Looks like, viewers are in for a bonanza, starting tomorrow!
