 ‘Kapoor & Sons’ Writer’s Short Film, “Butterfly”, Leaves Audiences Wanting More

8th May 2024, Mumbai, Maharashtra: Spandan Mishra’s poignant short film, “Butterfly,” was recently screened to much adulation through a special screening at a popular theatre in Andheri, Mumbai. Directed by Mishra, and produced by Last Minute Productions, in association with Dumroo Media, the film offers a powerful exploration of human connections with a minimal cast.

“Butterfly” features the talents of actors Shiv Tandan and Rahul Prakash. With only two individuals on screen, the film promises an intimate and thought-provoking experience regarding 2 friends from college days, and how their lives have diverged over the years, while asking a very tantalizing, “what if…” at the end. The short film is sure to reel you in, and make you want to see more of the story, to find out the various factors that led here, as well as what could possibly happen next, as the credits roll.

Speaking at the event, the Director and Producer, Mr. Spandan Mishra said, “To accomplish any task, no matter how big or small, one thing is very important, and that is to take the first step, and begin the journey! And that first step, while tricky, was less difficult for me than most, because of the immense encouragement and support I have received from my wife, family and friends! I was lucky enough to find talented people, who have helped me make this beginning, and deliver this final edit with the confidence that it will leave audiences wanting to watch more!” 

Last Minute Productions is in discussions with various OTT platforms for acquisition, and you should be able to watch the short film online soon.
