One Minute Please

One Minute Please
The worst thing about war is that it sometimes generates one-minute films. War or Peace? is a green director’s trial run of his own talent in the guise of a grander purpose, of course. "I have tried to express my grave concern about the human race," says Ritesh Sinha in a brief about the film. It stars Art of Living’s famous disciple, Rhea Pillai, as a pregnant woman in labour. Her husband dies in an explosion while taking her to the hospital. She eventually gives birth to a perfect baby. The one-minute film ends there and asks us to decide if we prefer war or peace. Donald Rumsfeld will call such art "collateral damage". But we wish brave Sinha who had to make the film with almost no budget good luck.
