Dead end production house has put its better foot forward. Review of IRUL (short film)

IRUL, as the title suggest is a horror movie. I never knew a short film could have a horror plot until this since most short movie will have a social message or fun in it and it is indeed tough to create thrill in 10 minutes but these guys have succeeded in it. With the recent hype this movie had in Facebook almost everyone who got tagged or irritated was expecting much on this movie. As one of them(audience) I was more interest in knowing what is the plot or movie is all about. I have always manage to keep my nerves and did the same, waiting to see it on the screen rather than peeking around.

Plot: In a revenge to the killing of a girl a boy murders his own roommates.

The movie starts with a car speeding on road with 3 drunk men on it with some raging discuss among them, all of a sudden a thud, one of the three men wake ups and proceeds to drink water to calm himself down. This way the movie starts with regular bgm that would suit a horror film. Something I found dizzy about movie is lighting whether it could be the idea of director of creative head!! to keep the movie in total dark so that the relationship between title and movie is established, but the problem, 3 men of same complexion and small difference in height its was not just hard but impossible to find difference between them.

The first half steals the show while the second steals our time, climax would have been made better, may be the director was trying to hit with some twist but ended it the other way. Blood in bottle made a very horror and freaky note. Camera man and Editor did their job wisely 4th cast on the movie the girl didn't have much to do about just but standing and laying down.

Taking in account that this is the first movie from this team I can award them with Platinum, but if and only if the connection between the lead male and female role is outspoken. Who knows its my friends creation I might have well given even a diamond if little care is made in the flashback and lighting. Still to the credit the movie is left unfinished with viewers imagination to flow anyway I can give only a Gold to this movie because of a unexpected rather unconvincing end to the movie.THE MOVIE IS WORTH WATCHING, I'm sure your dreams will not be disturbed.
