We are never satisfied with our work no matter whether we are working for someone or we have our own work. Someone is fed up of his/her shifts while someone is fed up of his/her employees. A majority of people don’t look content with their job.
But after watching Kalki’s new short film ‘The Job’ you will agree that your job experience is not as worse as hers and will thank heavens for ending you up where ever you are today. This short film is a story about French expat who is struggling to maintain her job because of her inability to separate reality from illusions. She is losing her mind because of it and it is becoming hard for her to maintain her work life.
Kalki who works as a translator in a cooperate office is juggling her life in small cubicles, late night shifts, dramatic bosses and the need of doing a job just for money. This part of the movie will help you relate to Kalki because most of us are struggling with the same things.
What sets the movie apart is Kalki’s fight with the reality and illusions. And when you watch it you will find it difficult to separate the reality and illusions as well. Kalki has no dialogue in this 15 minute long short film but she will make you stick till the end with her flawless acting and expressions. She conveys everything through her expressions. This movie will make you suspicious of everything because throughout the movie we feel like all the characters Kalki is thinking about exist but we never see them.
Directed by Siddharth Sinha this movie is a great psychological thriller that will give you chills. Siddharth leaves the movie open ended which raises many questions. Also without any doubt this is another bold attempt from Kalki and she made us fall in love with her acting skills again.
