Satisfied??? by Aliakbar Campwala (2011) (India) (8m)

Written and directed by Aliakbar Campwala, Satsifed??? is a short film with a personal story reflecting the changing world in cities such as modern day Mumbai (Bombay): a little like the Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire. Aslam is a man people come to if they need help in Mumbai. Anna is a pretty woman apparently involved in telephone sex. She apparently needs his help but how it all fits together is only revealed at the end. It may require more than one viewing!
