Credit should be given to this very witty fly for being able to outsmart the Hindu deity Shiva.  Not only was the fly triumphant in getting into the god's nerves but  it was able to dethrone the god, for good.  Sometimes, having too many hands can be a liability not an asset, and  in this film this was clearly manifested.  Brilliant and compelling!

A comical take on fly-swatting and  how a fly can make tempers rise, even for Shiva, the Hindu deity.  The fluid movements and  dance-like  actions was very enthralling and one can't help but laugh at the misfortune and entanglement that Shiva gotten himself into, all because of the fly.  Such a frisky fly to evade the countless arms!  I'm sure the director didn't mean no harm in dragging the Shiva to this kind of mess but  for all it's worth  the film was  engaging and entertaining. Do check out this animated short.

  • Poor Shiva, the fly really tangled and broke him... Sometimes the littlest thing really irritates us the most.
