Short film on drunk driving goes viral online

My-Husband-Made-Me-A-Prostitute“My Husband Made Me a Prostitute”, a short film that spreads the message of “Don’t Drink and Drive” through a fictional tale, has been viewed over 700,000 times online.

Published on online video-sharing website YouTube Monday, the over three-minute video has been viewed 796,280 times — and still counting.

Directed by Pankaj Thakur, the film shows what is the worst thing that can happen to a man who drinks and drive. It is a fictional account about his family — how his wife battles the world to survive and to pay the bills.

The movie opens with the protagonist getting ready for a party, sitting in front of a mirror and voicing her thoughts out loud to herself. She explains how her husband compelled her to become a prostitute without even saying a word. 

Her family has also accepted her choice of profession, a choice she opted for, to keep her husband alive after his near-fatal accident left him in coma. 

The movie closes with her wishing her husband had decided to take a taxi rather than driving himself and shattering his spinal cord. It gives out a final message in the end: “It’s your family who’ll pay the price. Don’t drink and drive.”

Thakur said in a statement: “The video stresses out one clear message — Realise how you, as an individual affect the life of your family to the extent of them becoming handicapped by just one wrong decision made by you.”
