Manju Warrier Domestic Abuse Short Film: All you need to know.

  • The 1.25 minutes short film focuses on the dowry system, harassment of women and domestic abuse as a whole.
  • The curtain of the film lifts with the scene of Esther Anil, a student, reading a book while loitering in the hall room with her father. The setting changes as there are screaming sounds from the house of a neighbour, hinting at a woman being abused by her husband.
  • Sreekanth Murali, playing the father, tries to ignore the floating cries initially but when it doesn’t stop, he takes a step. The step of shutting the curtains of the window, trying to cut off the noise.
  • Disappointed by her father’s actions, Anil sorts to take a step herself when she calls the abusive neighbour and utters some words in Malayalam which apparently makes him stop his actions right away. Her dialogue roughly translates to, ” Don’t brother, you will be punished.”
  • Manju Warrier comes in at the end of the film with a warning message stating this is not old Kerala anymore and such atrocities will be punished for sure.
  • The film was made by the Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA).
  • Producing the film with FEFKA is Indian Ad Filmmakers (I AM).
  • It was shared by Health Minister Veena George on July 8.
  • Warrier also shared the film, and wrote, “Happy to share this short film against dowry system and domestic violence in the society.”
