His mother then opens Farooq’s school bag and asks him to keep his book intact as it always comes home torn.

Innocent Farooq gets angry as he wants to take a new back to school tomorrow. It’s the morning of Farooq’s birthday.
She calls him to get up for school, Farooq replies in a disappointed and harsh tone but when he comes out he finds the same bag kept on his bed.

Rasika Duggal Short Film The School Bag Review
Large parallel short films always come up with straight-off topics and this film is based on a real incident that took place in an Army School in Peshawar in 2014, which took away 132 innocent young lives. This large viral film The School Bag revolves around the same plot and encapsulates a very heart-touching and wrenching story and engulfs the feelings of those thousand mothers and families who lost their children due to war and inhuman behavior.
Sometimes we are able to connect with the movie and sometimes not. The brilliant part is the real connection between the audience and the characters. When the policeman arrived on the doorstep with the school bag of Farooq we as an audience also felt the heart of a mother and what she must be going through, all thanks to the excellent screenplay and brilliant writing. The plot exactly revolves around a school bag for which Farooq was reluctant to have as a birthday present but in the end, the mother regrets buying it. She thinks if she would not have bought it Farooq would have been at home that day.
The School Bag Short Film Conclusion
The movie The School Bag comes up with the message that war is never an option. Taking away the life of someone who is not even involved and is guilty of anything is never an option. Rasika Duggal has played the role really well and Sartaj RK the child artist has been clearly able to keep alive the innocence and purity on screen. Both the characters juxtapose the love and warmth of a mother-son relationship. The film seems natural to watch and is a brilliant execution of a large barrel.
