Love stories in India are the same – even if they intend to be different. Also, the differently abled characters in films and other media rarely have their love stories spoken about. Other than Margarita with a Straw, there’s not a single film that talks about the love stories of differently abled people. Well, at least Gorilla Shorts is bringing about some change with their short film, Love Handles Story 3, where they bring the love story of a hearing-impaired individual
What’s Wow: The script is what stands out. It is rare for a director and script writer to succeed in talking about a cause, without making the screenplay cliched and somewhat preachy. Love Handles Story 3 succeeds in bringing a unique, quirky tone to the short film, while bringing to the fore the fact that differently abled people can lead mainstream lives.
The performances are good enough and add a heart-warming quality to the short film and create a place for the characters in the audience’s minds, long after they have watched the film.
What’s Blah: Nothing
