One of the best shorts from India
Chutney is one of the best shorts I have watched in recent times, that has come out of India. Apart from great acting by all actors/actresses, it the story-telling that is the USP of this awesome short film. For those who don't know what 'Chutney' is: It a condiment of Indian origin; made by mixing coriander, lemon, ginger, chili with vinegar, spices, sugar, salt; that is a mix of spicy, sweet, sour tastes. The movie starts with a topic that has been shown/used in hundreds of films till now, but as the movie progresses, you are being served a chutney of sweet spicy sour twists, which takes that ordinary-topic to a altogether new high. This movie uses following modes of story-telling that makes it a great must-watch film: (1) Multi-layered narration: Every statement that is spoken has multiple meanings (2) Multi-storied narration: Multiple partially-related parallel stories run along with the main story (3) Cyclic narration: Everything said or shown is connected deeply to each other. Watch & Enjoy!
