A 10-minute-long short film "Vicky" has become the talk of the social media. Written, directed and edited by Manu Antony, it has been garnering tremendous response from audience and celebrities.
"Vicky" stars a well trained Golden Retriever in the lead role, who teaches us that "there is no such thing as part freedom." The short film, which was released on Independence Day, Aug. 15, makes us aware that not just human beings, even animals must be given freedom. Without any dialogues, the emotions of the dog are well captured in the movie, which has been now being tagged as one of the must watch short films.

You could see the play of emotions in an eye blink,a tail swing and even at the glance of Vicky, the dog who played the lead role in this movie.Hats off to the director Manu Antony who made this all to a success by precisely handling the technical sides!

There is no such thing as part freedom...#Vicky....Must watch one..
Vicky..brilliant work #manuAntony must watch one!!!!
Superb film with a great message! Way to go Manu Antony!
Superb.....congrats Team VICKY
Manu Antony.. wow :) This is the best thing you could have possibly shot with a dog. All the movies I had ever seen with a dog protagonist had to tell me the same thing always - how a dog is connected to a man. This superseded my expectations as it wasn't the same dog-man love story. This was completely different. Although I could predict what was coming, it was shot in a very nice way that it didn't affect me that much. And Independence day is possibly the best day you could have released it too. Good thought...Good short film. 10 minutes well spent :)A Sushin Shyam Tdt musical as well :)
