Ripu – A Dh!shkyaaon Short Film


Get lost bitch, let me drink in peace. Why the hell did you beat him up? He cannot even do a simple job properly… Screws up every bloody job… You have given birth to an idiot. Is he your servant? He is your son dammit… treat him like one. My son? Are you sure darling? Is he really my son? A body of a young girl was discovered in the marshes… …beside the outer ring road yesterday evening. The 17 year old Jessica had been missing for the last two weeks. The autopsy report reveals that she was stabbed 23 times by a sharp object. The shocking part is that… the body was found naked and the skin was peeled off her face. Jessica was identified by her dental records. The city has never witnessed such a gruesome murder. This is what the superintendent of the police had to say… to INTV in a telephonic interview. It looks like a crime of passion to us… We have identified the victim as a 17 year old girl, named Jessica… Who has been reported missing since December 16th. We were on a look out for her… and found her body in marshes near outer ring road. As now the case is of homicide… we have fast tracked the investigation… …and are looking at this case from a whole new angle The entire city is shocked at the brutality of the crime… Let’s now move on to the next headline from the world of show biz Alright guys, so, let’s get back to handshake. Ah, so, what I was talking about is that handshake is a very important gesture… when you are meeting somebody not for the first time but every time. So, let’s say you are shake hands with your boss and do it with your palms facing down… Now what happens is… …it appears to your boss that you are a bit dominating… …or may be when you hold a girl’s hand for just a little too long… …you might blow your chance of going out with her. Let’s have a demo. Can I have a volunteer please? Ahh, How about you Mohan? Mohan? Me? Yes, you. Please come. Ok… See… When I hold his hand this lightly… ..it may appear that I am not interested in shaking hands with him… …or may be when I hold my hand this way… my palm facing down… I might appear to try being dominating… Your handshake should be firm, polite and should last for a few seconds… We’ll show you… …this way… Yes, that’s correct. Thank you, Mohan. You can take your seat. So apart from handshake a few other things that you should take care of while you are in a corporate environment. We’ll talk about that in the next class. Thank you. That’s all for today. The face hunter strikes again. This time a school teacher from south of the city. The victims body was found in the septic tank of the Noorpur post office. Similar to the earlier 4 victims, the skin of her face has been inhumanly peeled off. The police has failed miserably to catch this vicious serial killer, once again. This is what the commisioner of the police had to say. The killer is still unlisted in our database. He is very clever. Our most able detectives are working on this case. We have been able to narrow down a few suspects… Hopefully we will catch him very soon. In spite of the commissioners assurance… …there’s no way the women of the city will feel safe… …until this devil is caught and put behind bars… Hey Rakshak, What a co incidence? I just saw your case on TV. TV? Which channel? On INTV. Oh yeah, they came into our office today to bother us. So what about this face hunter thing… found anything? Yeah, this is why I called you? Tell me one thing… are you taking any classes at MIC Internationals? Yeah, Why? Is there anyone called Mohan Krishnan in your class? Mohan? Yes. Ok. Now listen carefully. I am standing near your house… Why don’t you come inside? Someone is standing outside your house… …he is continuously looking at your window. Why? I’ll go and check…
-Wait… Come out slowly… …and take a peek outside your window. Do you recognize him? Oh shit! This is Mohan! But what is he doing here? In the face hunter case he is one of our prime suspects.
-What? He was a manic depressive. His father was an alcoholic. His mom committed suicide when he was a teenager. Oh god! He has stalked a girl before. I suspect its him. Is he still a depressive because in class he doesn’t…
– Doctor had stopped his medication a couple of years back… But still we don’t think he is ok. Ok
– I guess he is after you. So you are not going to meet him anywhere outside. If you sense any danger, just give me a call, I will be around. Clear? Yeah. I’ll keep that in mind. But I am feeling very scared. It’s normal that you are scared, but don’t panic in any situation… I will be around. Take care. Bye. Alright guy’s, yesterday we talked about handshake… …and topic for today’s class is eye contact. Well the eyes are the most expressive part of our body, you all must be knowing… Eye contact can be in 2 ways… Ah…when you are addressing a single person or when you are addressing a whole group. So when you are talking with a single person your eye contact should be firm and it should be there for some amount of time. Unknown number? Hello. Janvi? This is Mohan Krishnan, Janvi. Yes I am there at your class at MIC International… You picked me yesterday for…
– Yes, I remember Mohan… …why are you calling me at this hour? Did I do something wrong? Did I hurt you? May be Mohan… but first tell me what were you doing outside my home yesterday?
– Did you see me? I was just… Yes I saw you. Why are you stalking me? I should have… …I could have called the police you know. Janvi I don’t want to hurt you, I don’t want to scare you Janvi… …I just wanted to tell you that, I like you a lot… …whenever I see you I feel comfort, Janvi, it just gives me a break from my past memories… You could have talked with me… …why stalk me? Why did you have to come to my home? Janvi, I was scared…Can we meet today? No way, Mohan. There no way I can meet you now. Janvi, whereever you say… I will not do anything stupid, Janvi.

Well, if you have nothing to say, then I will leave…
– No. Don’t… … I love you. What?! You don’t even know me, how can you love me? I don’t know. I have never said this to anyone this way before but… …since the day I saw you, you are always in my mind… …Just the thought of your going away makes me feel bad… …And today when I saw you with him… that made me feel very angry… Mohan, I don’t know what to say… Please say, yes or no? I can’t say yes, Mohan. Please, Janvi, please say yes… Mohan what are you doing…
