Goods and Bads of Dot Plus O.
Dot Plus O is an art film and the director has experimented well to portray the condition of the society which we had made and now become the slaves of the system but the director made it way too much complex to be understood in one go for ordinary audience and for those who are not familiar with the art films or theater genre. The concept was good but little more elaboration could have helped the director to make the audience understand the things more clearly and stylized presentation and the typical musical stage show could have turned into a simple cinematic approach. One nice thing would like to mention and that is the short was silent which adds to it as a plus point.
