Kolza – The Rape is an audacious attempt for a short-film & its writer/director deserves praise for successfully packaging it in under 8 mins of Rashomon-ish scenario based treatment, raising pertinent questions on a generally prevelant societal evil. The female lead, Theertha pulls off a rather difficult role with convincing ease & is supported well by the other character. The technical aspects of the short are impressive (Slick work behind the camera & some realistic sound design providing a touch of reality. The random fast cuts alongside Beethoven‘s symphony bit combine aptly adding to the tension.

The abruptness in the end makes the film fall ‘thud’ and this is probably a victim of trying too hard to finish off in style. While the effects of the other scenarios are highlighted or there to be seen, the lack of it for the last one makes the judgmental position the film takes look biased.
