Love is not a simple concept and we all know that. Each relationship has its very own blueprint and with that also comes very specific issues and problems. These are what make our love stories unique and special, right? Now, if you ask me, I love realistic stories and films that address the many complexities in a relationship along with the sweet parts of it. And this web anthology from produced by Guneet Monga‘s Sikhya Entertainment titled ‘Zindagi InShort‘ is all about that!
Based on the theme of love, Zindagi InShort talks about seven different stories, each dealing with very important and relevant issues that are not spoken about a lot. Mostly directed by first-time filmmakers and starring some amazing talents, these gender-fluid narratives cover various stages of life and touch upon themes. They range from standing up for oneself, infidelity, the confusions that come with old age, the innocence of childhood, online romance, a woman owning her role in the family and the idea of being loved in a marriage. From watching the trailer, it looks like such a lived-in and heartfelt representation of ordinary situations in everyday life, just the kind of storytelling I love!
Zindagi inShort is our attempt to normalise conversations about extraordinary situations in our ordinary lives. The idea is to look at these situations differently and laugh, smile and rise. We’re excited to offer films that make viewers pause, register and move on with a lingering thought that holds the power to change us for good.
The anthology stars a potpourri of talented actors like Neena Gupta, Sanjay Kapoor, Divya Dutta, Deepak Dobriyal, Nidhi Singh, Aisha Ahmed, Nakuul Mehta and Manjot Singh among others. All these stories are helmed by some rather new and interesting directors that include Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, Vijayeta Kumar, Gautam Govind Sharma, Punarvasu Naik and other such talents.
I sure am looking forward to watching this one! What about you?
