“Birth” is a thriller short film starring Shreya Dhanwanthary and Lillete Dubey. It is a 25-minute film that follows the journey of a pregnant woman 'Meera' played by Shreya. 'Birth' is said to explore how society attempts to reshape a woman's identity as a good mother in a sly way.


Birth's Plot

The story revolves around a pregnant woman named Meera played by Shreya Dhanwanthary in the satirical feminist drama 'Birth' as she attends a facility run by Mama Nithya played by Lillete Dubey, where expectant mothers go to celebrate their pregnancies. Meera, however, is lured into a dangerous cult and her life is forever altered.

Here's The First Look Of Birth

Natasha, the producer of this short film stated that her goal in making 'Birth' was to examine how Indian society affects a woman's identity as she becomes a mother. 

She said, "I conceptualised ‘Birth’, to explore how society attempts to reshape a woman's identity as a ‘good mother’ in a tongue and in cheek way. It was a pleasure working with stellar actors such as Lilette and Shreya, who brought the characters in our minds come, so perfectly to life."

Director Shyam Sundar expressed his hope that the "Birth" theme would strike a chord with the audience.

He said, "The film has a unique vision. It focuses on the personal struggles of the countless women who struggle to maintain their identity in the face of societal pressure through a satirical twist. Lilette and Shreya have done absolute justice to their versatile roles. We hope that the relatable theme of ‘Birth’ appeals to the audience."

Abeer Mehervish, Aanchal Chauhan, and Natasha Iyer all play crucial roles in the Shyam Sunder-directed and Natasha Malpani Oswal-produced film "Birth."

While you wait for Birth, which will be available to stream on August 27, Disney + Hotstar has a lot more short films that focus on various subjects, like Dum Dum Deega Deega, Itwaar, I am Groot and many more.
