Hell Calling.!

Hell Calling is a short film about a boy who smokes marijuana for the first time. The after-effect puts him in delusion and he starts to see, feel and do things that did not actually happen.

Directed and acted by my friend Raj Kumar who has won the Best Actor Award for his short film "Story Of My Library" from Rotary Club, East Coast. His film "Story Of My Library" has been screened in more than 6 International Film Fests. Hell Calling is his third short film. I scored music for this film :).


The movie starts with a guy buying marijuana from a drug dealer. He gets back home, mixes pot with tobacco, and smokes it. He suffers severe after-effect which scares him to death. He tries to do things (like hit on the wall, drink water from bubble top) just to make sure he is still alive. To reduce the activity of the drug, he takes bath which in turn produces more effect. He then takes a book and writes down the "effects of marijuana". Just to differentiate and to show what the boy feels, the director would've shown the boy's view in black and white screen and the actuality in color. By that, we see that the pen he uses to write down will have no ink in it, and also the book he uses to write the effects will have nothing written on it. The effect of the drug makes him feel hallucinated. He gets a call from hell (his phone displays 'Hell Calling..' as caller identity) and wonders what is happening to him. He tries to go back to think what he had done for its cause. Several images cross by and he gets an indefinite idea of what happened. He then attends the call and the movie ends, giving the rest to the audience.
