Cinematographer Baba Azmi directs his first short film, to be screened at a Mumbai short films festival.
Baba Azmi is a well-known name in cinematography, with movies such as Arjun, Dil and Mr India to his credit. However, for a long time he stayed away from donning the director's hat. "I needed a good idea," he says candidly. When he found one, he decided to make a short film on it. It also helped that he had a couple of months off between his last project Miley Na Miley Hum and his TV assignment Satyamev Jayate, and he decided to make a short film in that duration.
Conesty, a 21-minute Hindi short film by Azmi, is a story of a yogi and his kidnapper, played by Om and Shakeel Khan respectively. "Conesty is about some life-changing conversations between a famous yogic guru and his kidnapper, while waiting for the ransom money to arrive. In these few minutes, the yogi manages to teach the hot-headed, foul-mouthed kidnapper some valuable lessons of life. In turn, the yogi too manages to accidentally learn something good from his boorish captor," says Azmi.
