Bangalore Traffic Police Launched Public Awareness Short film The Last Drink
Bangalore Traffic Police have launched a public awareness short film, The Last Drink - Tryst of Fun, failure, Despair, which is directed by Mr. Shinu Mathew.
Mr. Ginu Joseph, Director of Chrysolite Media and presenter of the film said that with the explosive growth of our urban landscape, our roads have become the death traps. How many times did you wonder, while leaving home, whether you would be returning home alive, or in a gurney, or worst, in a coffin.
The short film, The last drink - tryst of Fun, Failure, Despair, delves deep into this fact. That how a seemingly harmless act can turn into a fatal mishap and how it affects people who are not even remotely connected to that.
The story revolves around three sets of people who live in the IT hub of India, Bengaluru. The first set, two men who works in some flashy IT company, set out to celebrate one of their birthday. The second set, a husband & wife, who are on the verge of a split, and having violent arguments. The husband is branded as a loser by all and sundry and he is looked down upon.
The third, a lower class family, who are going through a terrible period of their life and their lone daughter required urgent lifesaving medical attention. The poor guy is struggling to source the money required for the procedure and is under tremendous pressure & frustrated at the little or no progress.
On that eventful evening all the three meets at a cross road, a life changing event for many. But ultimately the sufferers are not the ones who are directly impacted by it.
Though the story is set in Bengaluru, it could be of any city, any place in India. Drunken Driving, the menace on the road, is on an upswing, and despite the Police trying to check it with stringent measures, there is no respite from it.
The director of this film, Mr. Shinu Mathew said that the story took shape in his mind after witnessing a horrible incident during his stay in Bellary, a district in Karnataka. A man was hit by a speeding truck, over his legs, and both the limbs were hanging by a small patch of skin. The bone and the flesh were a mess, flattened against the asphalt.
All of a sudden, a girl, aged about 8, burst into the scene along with her mother. A heart breaking scream, an ear piercing one, rang out as the girl saw her father lying in a pool of blood. That instance spurred a story and he steadfastly pursued it till this moment to get this short film released.
