‘Khatoon Ki Khidmat’ is a Perfect 10 winner in the prestigious Mumbai International Film Festival (MAMI) 2018 under the ‘Royal Stag Large Short Films category.’ The film is about a newly-married couple and a father who takes the audience on a satirical journey portraying the negligence and orthodox beliefs of the society.
Khatoon Ki Khidmat had me smiling all the way through. The rhythm of the movie is well-maintained and goes hand in hand with the current political turbulence that the country is going through in the matters of Islamic or perhaps the broader religious question.
The short film is a nuanced and skilful portrayal of how humour can be found even in the most tragic situations. Along with being a subtle but impactful comment on gender, it also shows the struggle of straddling modernity and tradition.
प्रेमचंद की कहानियों जैसी सादगी का जादू बिखेरने वाली एक शॉर्ट फिल्म, ‘ख़ातून की ख़िदमत’ रोज़मर्रा के एक मसले को बड़ी ही ख़ूबसूरती से उकेरती है
The short film surely brings out the humour in the tiniest of situations and leaves you with a laugh while raising questions about society and religion. It throws a light on the struggle between tradition and modernity as well as different valid interpretations of religion.
