| Quick, yet strong punch! Thumbs Up
First of all, I am one of those luckiest men who had a chance of watching this film at the earliest of chances.

The very title of the film "What Am I Doing Here?" was intriguing enough to try this short film. Now, I am not a big fan of short film. The main reason - it seems, a short film often fails to disseminate the intended message within the stipulated time. Often I had this feeling - I had my lunch and I had this empty stomach rumbling with no clue what I ate!

Unlike my previous 'lunch', I could remember my menu and every bit of taste with this one. I was amazed, moved and sympathetic. The central character stays far away from his home, trying to reach for the big catchment; a dream of becoming a successful writer in the world he is trying to fit in. As the story developed, I was feeling a sensible of tug of war between his long cherished dream and his deeply rooted emotions; emotions even he knew not.

Just to conclude in one sentence - if you are a thinker, this short film will confront your viewpoint of close relations, aspiration, surrounding and the ultimate upshot.

Take a bow Mr. Wahid Ibn Reza! You made me laugh, you made me cry. Not too many could do that to me; know it man. Looking forward to seeing you pretty soon….
