PASHI – India’s Finest 2018 Short Film

We are extremely delighted to share with you that, Himachali Film – Pashi has been reviewed as the Finest Indian Short Film of 2018 by Indie Shorts Magazine (ISM). You can read the review here:

This is not the first time Pashi has been counted among the best cinematic work to have come out of India. Pashi has been twice included in the list of Top 10 Indian Short Films which included films of acclaimed actors like Anupam Kher, Jacky Shroff, Shefali Shah , Tisca Chopra and Neena Gupta.

Shimla based Award winning Independent Filmmaker, Siddharth Chauhan’s pahari short film PASHI was shot in the Villages of Khalawan, Dhanoti & Tikker in Rohru, Himachal Pradesh. PASHI premiered at the Oscar Qualifying: RIFF Festival in USA and since then has traveled to more than 20 Film Festivals across the globe and has won 6 International Awards so far including Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Film, Best Actor, Audience Choice Award.

Trailer of the film: 

Siddharth’s Statement: “It’s unbelievable. I want to thank my actors , crew members and parents for believing in me and my work. While my next short – Jaadui Sandook (Flying Trunk) is ready for it’s world premiere, I am currently looking for young actors from Himachal to cast in my next few projects – Push Ups (a school life drama) and A Date with Myself (a story about identity, love and freedom).”

FILMOGRAPHY: The film was shot in 10 days at the Sunta Lodge, a beautiful wooden mansion of Village Khalwan, Rohru owned by Shri. Omkar Sunta and some parts were filmed in Village Dhanoti at Shri Balwan Singh Chauhan’s House, and the rest at Govt School Tikker, Rohru.

STORY: Set in a traditional himachali village, an unusual love story unfolds as a visitor arrives and meets his neighbor after years. Simultaneously, a young boy learns about a technique of trapping birds from his wicked-old grandmother and begins to practice it.

CONCEPT: Pashi is a ‘pahari’ laguage word literally meaning ‘a trap’. Pashi is an old concept used by villagers & growing children for hunting birds & animals.

DIRECTORS VISION: Pashi is a film about love and the complexity of one’s feelings. With an undertone of a crucial question: “what is consent?”, Pashi uses the concept of ‘a trap’ as a metaphor to let the audience enter the volatile mind of a young boy.

MUSIC: The Music for PASHI has been composed by Prabir Sekhri from Canada who has used a Russian Instrument: “BALALAIKA” to compose specially for the film.
