Piyush Mishra, Alka Amin’s short film Katran strikes a chord 

The 14-minute short examines the crumbling relationship of an elderly couple 

Published: 26th October 2019

Piyush Mishra and Alka Amin star in writer-director Prem Singh’s debut short film Katran. The 14-minute short examines the crumbling relationship of an elderly couple who decide to end their 36 years of marriage.

Katran is produced by Shashi Prakash Chopra, whose previous film, School Bag, directed by Dheeraj Jindal, was screened at over 100 festivals. Katran was released by Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films earlier this month and was recently screened at the MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. 

“I believe movies are a great way to portray human experiences in people's daily lives,” director Prem Singh said. “Every character or story you write is somewhere inspired by your surroundings. Katran is deeply relatable and simple, that unfolds the many facets of a struggling relationship.” 

Piyush Mishra, who has frequently appeared in short films like Remember A Day, Sangharsh and Kathakaar, shared, “Katran is such an amazing short film and yet a very challenging role because it had all past and present situations I really love working with new directors and when Prem Singh came to me and read the story I instantly loved it and had a gut feeling to do this story and I did it and I'm loving the response I'm getting.”
