Love comes in all forms and shapes. It can be the sweetest and purest thing in the world and the most annoyingly volatile and selfish at the same time. The adage ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder’ remains intact in the digital world albeit with a caveat. We are never really absent from anyone’s life anymore owing to our virtual lives on social media. As Netflix and chill replaces candle-light dinners and long drives, one would assume that going long-distance is a piece of cake. However, long distance relationships are hard; and harder than they seem, even in the internet day and age. While you may gush over the latest episode of the series you both are watching, you will still miss the random pecks on cheeks, the spontaneous hand-holding or the warmth of a bear-hug.
Chronicling the struggles of being in a long distance relationship, The Timeliners latest sketch gives us a glimpse into the lives of Pankaj and Priya, played by Ambrish Verma and Tanya Maniktala.
Pankaj and Priya share a beautiful loving relationship, but the road gets rocky when Priya shifts to another city. Capturing endearing moments and lovely surprises, as well as misunderstandings and unwarranted confusion, The Timeliners’ latest sketch is a fine portrayal of the modern-day long distance relationship. Packed with doses of humor and emotions, Long Distance Relationships eventually concludes with a twist in the tale.
