Short Film: A tribute to the legend, 'OLD MONK'
This 2015 short film is making the rounds on YouTube again, for its simplistic style of a heartfelt narrative.

Your words and my alcohol, both have the same taste – a lingering sense of bitter-sweet.” (Adapted from an internet quote)

A passive tribute to the most memorable Indian brand of liquor, and the memories that once were lived and of the ones that were loved – both long gone, but not forgotten.

Even though, this short-film isn't really a masterpiece yet it touches upon the lesser talked personal aspects – just like a man who buys stock of ‘rum’ everyday to recollect his youth along with a friend (Sanjay Mishra, “Masaan” and Jitu Shastri).

Thereby, we gently ‘rummage’ through our own stock of nostalgia of the times that we once were. And, in that light intoxication of the past selection, we gather ourselves – a bit half-heartedly – to live a life again, being one with the world and yet staying indifferent – much like a “monk”.
