These days movies don’t show up on the theatre but instead, arrive directly on your computer screens or maybe even your mobile screens. We have tonnes of YouTube channels and independent websites that bring us raw, hard-hitting and real content. Here is a list of 10 new Indian short films that no girl should miss out on because they’re simply brilliant!

1. White Shirt


When do you decide it’s time to break up with somebody? And how do you get over it? We’ve all faced heartbreak at one time or the other and have often found ourselves stuck in the past. This short film by LargeShortFilms, starring Kunal Kapoor and Kritika Kamra, explains exactly what a break up feels like and when it’s time to move on.

2. The Easy Girl


What would you think about a girl who goes out drinking with her guy friends? Wears short clothes? What would the guys think about her? That she is easy and asking for sex? This short film by Cinemonkz breaks all barriers that the society has set for women and men. No girl is ‘asking for it’ and no guy needs to assume that.

We can’t control who we fall in love with or when. This cutesy short film by UltraShorts takes us through the romance of two strangers who happen to be each other’s plus-ones at a derby match. They talk, they get along, they get separated but neither of them know each other’s name! A story about fate and about how sometimes, life just falls in line. This one is a must watch!

5. Dekhne Mein Kya Harj Hai?


Ever had a dinner conversation with your parents about marriage? We’ve all been there, right? Cribbing about all the guys our parents want us to meet or arguing about ‘the right age’ for marriage. Here is a short film by The Short Cuts that shows us the other side of the story. How the parents of this successful girl find her the perfect match and then bring up the topic with tact and subtlety, is hilarious!

A woman truly is the epitome of strength. Through the course of her life she learns, fights and strives for happiness.

Also, watch it for Vidya Malvade’s truly spectacular performance.
