Review : OHANA – A heart touching short film

Creative thoughts can bring wonders even through short films. This is the trend now-a-days. Many curious directors are budding with creative thoughts and prove their skills step by step. Short Films have become a perfect platform for these experiments. Its amazing to note that Director Sujith who is working on Prabhas for “Saho” has also started his career with short films.

Of late many experimental shortfilms have flooded youtube. They varied from Love stories, fun comedies and baseless jokes. Heart touching and message oriented films have become rare.

At this juncture, a young debut director Naveen Naidu Sunkara came up with a heart touching short film named OHANA. Ohana means that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another. This has been released as a Rakhi gift.

Backdrop of the story is at a sea shore and on a family struggling to survive and living with meagre livelihood. A little sister who sells balloons to visitors and a brother assists fisherman on deep seas. The little girl dreams of studing and his brother takes up the responsibility of her dreams.

Creating a short film is not that easy with shoestringed budgets and duration to express within short time. Director Naveen has succeeded to grab the audience attention within the first minute itself. He could showcase a 10 year old’s life here. A sister’s wish to purchase a Rakhi (sacred thread tied to a brother by a sister on Raksha Bandhan Festival) has been shown very expressively. Sister deciding to make a rakhi with a flower mirrors the creative thought of the young director.
Total film is subtle without any exaggeration.

Baby Hema acted with ease. She looked very sweet and innocent.

Music was also carefully done. Camera work is upto the mark and selection of locations is the highlight. Kong: Skull Island 2017 movie download

Lets wish OHANA team all the best as it proved as a subtle short film with a heart touching message and the best Rakhi Gift.
