With Indians choosing to consume media and entertainment in their own language, the last few years have laid the foundation for the regional language content surge. ShortsTV added the Desi Tadka segment focussing on their growing affinity towards the regional content, showcasing the best regional language short films – with subtitles in English. Expanding the existing library of various regional titles, Desi Tadka features Malayalam and Punjabi shorts films. Now the audiences can now experience stories from Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra,
Nerve-hitting films like Men at My Door and thought-provoking films like Aswadakan are included in the Malayalam short films. Aswadakan is a short film that explores the moral dilemmas faced by an artist in the modern-day context. Is his art important? Does his art need a connoisseur? Directed by Suraj Varma, the film is an attempt to find answers for these predicaments. Men at My Door is a 17-minutes short psycho-thriller film. The story revolves around a couple in a long-distance affair that finally comes to their desired conclusion. But their intimate moments are interrupted when an uninvited guest comes calling.
Riveting short films such as Khoon Aali Chithi and Zahida are included in the Punjabi catalogue. Khoon Aali Chithi is a powerful story produced by Richa Chadda that recreates the environs of rural Punjab. The film discusses violence in Punjab with militant and fake encounters as the teenager dithers overwriting a love letter to his beloved in blood. Zahida is a super inspiring story of the first female taxi driver in Pakistan. She is independent, confident, and believes in breaking the stereotype. This film is her story of struggle, fight, and empowerment.
