Clocking in at 23 minutes, Shimmy is a little slice-of-life short that is simple yet so full of meaning that it transported me back to my childhood. It’s a problem every woman faces – well, not exactly a problem per se, but the first time is always super awkward. However, Raima isn’t just some girl. Regardless of her awkwardness, the 11-year-old faces the difficulties that come with her age with grace and surprising maturity.She, however, isn’t the only person worth giving a damn about in Shimmy. Amol, too, is a real winner. Sure, he’s a little awkward and trying to figure out life as it comes his way, but he is willing to learn and grow along with his daughter. It’s shocking to fathers when their little girls grow up, it’s an adjustment for sure. But Amol, too, faces the challenges with a little awkwardness but surprising grace.What touched me in Shimmy was the fact that the short is presented in such a simple and no-nonsense manner. Raima and her father’s problems are not screamed from the rooftops. Rather, it’s evident in their everyday life and how they face the challenges that come to them. Although we only follow them throughout the course of a day, yet a lot is made clear in such a short runtime. You relate to both these characters in such heartwarming ways.
