NMIFF welcomes the entry of a short Film “Happiness" from India, Directed By Tapeshwar Devgun.
Happiness,this story is set up in a border town of Punjab and Haryana.This is a story of a small boy in a poor family migrated from Uttar Pradesh to Punjab in search of their livelihood. This is a laborer family and boy assists his mother in the menial household jobs. From outer surface his life seems to be very dry and charmless. We see him doing continuous hard labour which is beyond his physical capacity and that reflects some frustration and hopelessness in his eyes. He has desires in his heart but seems no room to express them. But as we follow him little deep into his personal corners, he originates some happiness for himself. The source of his happiness is the basic values in his heart of friendship and sharing.
