What’s the worst possible punishment you could ever give to a person who had done wrong to you? What should be done to a man to make himself crave for suicide? Esperanza is a psychological thriller that answers such questions. This short movie that spans 14 minutes will make every audience cringe on their seats while watching it. It’s not a movie for everyone, but the art film lovers would definitely enjoy it.

Ezperanza has a deep philosophy in it. A one time watch maybe enough for a keen observer to grasp the philosophy of the movie but for the ordinary audience it might take more. Esperanza, in Spanish, means hope or expectation. And that’s the main theme of the movie. The protagonist, the only character in the film, goes through a psychological journey that’s continuously associated with hope. But this is not the “regular kind of hope” that we usually see in the movies. This is a hope which is associated with freedom. The protagonist longs for a day which is uncertain to him. It’s the uncertainty in life that he hopes for. When everything is certain, there’s no meaning in life. This is the philosophy Esperanza wanted to convey to the audience.

Ezperanza is a low budget short film with a high-quality output. Director Khader Karipody had done an amazing job in directing this movie. And the entire soul of the movie was carried in the hands of Shaheer Che, who played the role of the protagonist and also wrote the story and screenplay of the movie. He had done complete justice to his own script while playing the part. Every aspect of the film had written “art” all over it. The camera and cinematography complemented the story’s psyche.
