Happy Birthday – A mystery thriller
New Delhi: Natak Pictures intrigues its audience again with the release of its new short film Happy Birthday.
The Delhi-based film studio released the film on YouTube recently.
Written and directed by Rahul Bhatnagar, Happy Birthday is the first of its kind, as never in the past has anyone experimented to make a mystery thriller on a topic like domestic violence.
Speaking on the release of the film, Rahul Bhatnagar, says, "With this film, we have tried to touch upon the highly sensitive social issue of domestic violence with a very creative yet careful approach. The feel of the film has been intentionally kept dark to complement its diabolical story".
He adds, "Though the message we are trying to bring out through the film is very basic and obvious but the manner in which it is presented will definitely give goose bumps to the audience."
The cast of the film, chosen by Tanya Singh is a mix of old and new faces. Playing the protagonist (Niti) is Kritika Bharadwaj, while Radha Bhatt, the plays the role of Niti's older self.
