Gadhedo (Large Short Films): The worth of a fool

What happens when the devious takes advantage of the simple? Gadhedo offers a sneak peek.

The original short film by Jay Sharma is based on a Rajasthani folk tale which essentially shows how the cunning can easily fool the simple folk. The story is based inside a village called Jhalamand in Rajasthan where Chandan Roy Sanyal plays Maatsa; the only teacher in the village.

When Maatsa’s landlord and washer (Vikrant Massey) starts wondering how Maatsa has everyone hovering around him, the former tells him that he can turn donkeys into humans.

Chaos follows as the landlord takes the teacher’s words literally and pays him to do the same to his donkey who is supposedly useless.

The short satirical film hides various messages in itself. The biggest one of which seems to be how a simple donkey is worth more than a fool.

Gadhedo’s full cast includes Vikrant Massey, Aakash Dabhade, Trupti Khamkar, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Undra as the donkey. The movie is in association with Royal Stag and can be streamed on its YouTube Channel LargeShortFilms. Check it out:
