1 Star (out of 4)

The ten short films in this anthology share no common themes, and few even have complete narratives, making Dus Kahaniyaan feel more like a trailer reel than a real movie. Given the racy content of several of the flicks, including adultery and drug use, the movie seems like an excuse for directors to explore material that wouldn’t make past the Indian censors in a mainstream feature. Of the ten short films, “Rice Plate” has the most intriguing premise, while “Lovedale” has a pleasant, self-contained story. The rest are just ideas too underdeveloped to merit being put on film.
