* SPOILER ALERT *

The much talked-about short film Devi is a 13-minute-long heart-wrenching experience that viewers will never forget. Directed by Priyanka Banerjee and produced by Electric Apples Entertainment for Large Short Films, Devi stars the likes of Kajol, Neha Dhupia, Neena Kulkarni, Shruti Haasan, Sandhya Mhatre, Mukta Barve, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Rama Joshi and Yashaswini Dayama. Devi, currently available on YouTube, begins with a scene featuring all the actresses holed up in a room. Why and how all of them landed up there is explained later in the film and will make you shiver. Very soon, viewers realise that Devi is a brutally honest take on the issue of sexual harassment. Devi, which handles the theme of rape and abuse sensitively throughout, comes to an end with a bitter truth that will break your heart.

Must watch," read a tweet while another added: "Devi is a must watch. It's an eye opener. I had teary eyes towards the end." Another viewer wrote: "Painful yet beautifully directed and acted," while one more netizen added: "This does make an impact."

Here's how Twitter reviewed Devi:

Kudos to the brilliant cast," read a tweet.

Devi prompted several viewers to contribute to the conversation about abuse:
