A few days ago, we told you that Imran Khan will be directing a short film under the Dharma 2.0 banner. The short film is made under the brand Johnnie Walker and is an endeavor to bring forth the brand’s idea of keep walking. The short film tells the story of India’s journey to Mars. Here’s our review.
The short film is a crisp, concise story of how everything happened. The screenplay’s crisp enough to move at a maddening pace and keep the audience engaged. One of the most important reasons that the short film keeps its audience interested is because of the technical details that the film has. The performances are good too and bring the story to the audience. Another good part of this short video is the rousing background music – which really takes the story a peg ahead than it already is.
What’s Wow: The performances are good. This is a concept that requires a proper, mainstream film to get its point across – but Imran Khan and Abhishek Saha, who write the story, screenplay and dialogues succeed in getting the point across. Prakash Belawadi stands tall among the cast.
What’s Blah: This short film could have been better. It’s already 23-minute-long, which is 2018 is almost a mini movie. Strictly keeping that in mind, the screenplay could have been better. But for Imran Khan, it’s a good debut as director.
Parting Shot: This is a good story and a good endeavor for Johnnie Walker as well as Imran Khan.
