Guest Author: Dum Dum Dumroo- A must watch dark comedy!

- By Prerna Dawar

Mumbai rains can bring the best or worst out of a person and for me, it definitely made me stay indoors and binge on movies, or should I say short films. 

On a rainy Saturday, I decided to watch something different, I decided to watch short films. When I did a basic search, Dum Dum Dumroo popped up and I’d decided that this was the movie I’d want to watch today.

Now, Dum Dum Dumroo revolves around a weird little man called Dumroo and a doctor, played by popular TV actor Sanaya Irani, who also happens to be my favourite. The film also features Anil Charanjeett. The overall messaging of the movie is about how people should stop being judgemental.

The entire story is set inside a hospital and has an eerie feel to the whole movie watching experience. The doctor, who is a paediatrician has just joined work and is new to the environment. There she meets Dumroo, the peon and instantly feels weird and feels how strange he is. Certain actions of his, makes her feel unsafe and suspicious about him, she worries day and night about her safety and the safety of her family as well. Then one day, she discovers Dumroo engaging in very inappropriate behaviour which makes her call rush to the authorities to file a complaint. However, the twist comes in 11 minutes after the incident which changes the whole course of the short film.

Once cannot describe the short film as a suspense movie but rather a dark comedy exploring the various human emotions and what really is behind Dumroo’s actions and what is his real motive 

The best bits of the film is the fantastic acting by both Sanaya Irani and Anil Charanjeet who have made the most impact. The overall messaging of the movie will definitely blow the viewers mind as it is a topic which has not really been spoken about

Don’t be surprised if you don’t find enough dialogue delivery as the message is the main take away of the film and is an amazing effort made by the whole team

The movie is definitely worth seeing and will be a refreshing change from what one sees regualry on the big screen. I recommend that you watch this movie with an open mind and an open heart. I assure you this one is a must watch and if you are a Sanaya Irani fan like me, you wouldn’t want to miss her stellar performance
