There’s no evil cult nurturing a pregnant woman to deliver the devil in this world, as was the case in Polanski’s critically acclaimed Rosemary’s Baby, but Poojitha Prasad’s short film Laali has certain vibes that instantly reminds you of this film.
A couple is going through tough times, when the mother is overly obsessed with her “child”, who the husband believes exists just in her imagination. Their relationship suffers owing to this, and there comes a point where as a viewer you are confused between who is sane and who’s not. The dim settings do justice to the protagonist’s emotional state, and the lullaby intensifies the tension.
