The Hindu carries a film review by Sudhish Kamath:
Short stories work best as short films. There is a certain brevity and inherent pace that must not be tampered with.
Mr. Kamath is clearly not a film goer. He has forgotten, or not seen, Rashomon, Rear Window, The Silence of the Lambs, and many other fantastic full-length movies developed out of short stories. In fact, Alfred Hitchcock, that master film-maker, in a long interview given to Francois Truffaut, another master, claimed that one can only make short stories into feature films.
