Khaad (The Fall)

A heart-rending story that moves at an almost bipolar pace, oscillating between suddenness and inexplicable slowness

A group of tourists hea­ded for the north Bengal hills are stuck at a railway station because of a tra­n­sport strike. A bus is organised. Winding their way up the mountain road, the bus tumbles down a rocky cliff into a gorge. After moments of suspense, we see them emerge from the mangled vehicle in various states of (mostly minor) injury. A bleeding nose. A twisted ankle. Plans for a safe return start, but they decide to spend the night at the spot to avoid losing their way in the dark. However, the casualness with which the group behaves while being in grave danger rings a little false. And by post-interval, I am able to figure out the twist in the tale.
