Black Beauty (2022)

Drama, Short

Reva is a successful young woman who is passionate and compassionate. She is lovingly coaxing her partner, Sumit, to adopt the baby abandoned by the mother in a garbage trash can (an unfortunate occurrence that's quite common in India even today where unwed mothers or women who give birth to girls often abandon their babies in garbage trash cans). She wants to adopt the baby...but her partner Sumit, a methodical young man who plans everything in his life - is a bit unsure as he feels the couple is still not ready to have a baby - let alone adopt. Sumit is irritated when Reva doesn't give up on her notion of adoption and tries to convince Sumit in every possible way. Sumit, though a kind hearted man, doesn't seem to be convinced. He feels the couple were planning to have their own baby and the suddenness of Reva's adoption idea bothers him as he feels that they'd be risking the baby's health and future as they have no experience in parenting. That's when Reva tells a shocked Sumit that she's already invited a social worker from the adoption agency who's coming to check in on them if they are going to be suitable adoptive parents. Sumit gets angry at Reva then and tells her that adoption agencies have a strict protocol and they do complete background checks. Reva tells her she's sure that they'd prove to be eligible to be adoptive parents to the baby. Even as she's convincing Sumit who's not budging from his position, the doorbell rings and the social activist and adoption agency volunteer, Shalaka comes into their home. Reva does her best to charm Shalaka and says that even Sumit is quite interested in adopting and he's taken a leave from work as he's excited with the idea. However, Sumit can't suppress his misgivings and tells Shalaka that he felt it strange to get a baby who's parentage was unknown. He clearly is worried with the stigma attached to such adoptions in large sections of Indian society even today. Shalaka counter-argues and explains to Sumit that who the parents were is not a problem, but who the parents were going to be is of importance...and she points that its Reva and Sumit who are the prospective parents-to-be. Despite their best efforts, Reva and Shalaka are unable to make Sumit see the sense in adoption and he remains steadfast in his stand. That's when Shalaka with her extreme tact and handling abilities diffuses the tension and her simple action leads to the endearing and captivating loving end to this drama.
