Watched this short film A Silent Melody on NDTV. It seems inspired from the 2008 Australian short film Signs directed by Patrick Hughes. This is not the first time that a short film has been inspired from Signs. Paperman which won an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film last year was also inspired from the same short film.
And here is the short film Signs.
And here is the animated short film Paperman. Paperman seems to have been inspired partly from Signs and partly from the animated 1995 French short Paroles en l air by Sylvain Vincendeau.
