Imtiaz Ali is known for his unique take on love stories via his films. He is one of the first directors to come up with content for the digital medium, by presenting a short film. Now, the maverick director brings to the digital medium his first short film, that he writes and directs.
The Other Way is a short film that tells the story of a young woman who’s about to be married. The screenplay takes us through how the woman has a one-off affair with a photographer she meets as a chance and what happens next forms the rest of the story.
What’s Wow: It’s confirmed that Imtiaz knows his craft. He uses his expertise to bring a new, unique type screenplay to the Indian audiences. The performances are quirky and take the content to a whole new level. Pavel Gulati is great and lover next door who’s wondering about the girl he’s just met. Shreya Chaudhry’s performances will tug at your heart – and she wins you over with her innocence and spunk.
Ali knows that the digital medium will not tolerate the run-of-the-mill screenplays of mainstream films and therefore he comes up with a unique screenplay that works perfectly.
What’s Blah: Nothing
Parting Shot: Imtiaz Ali’s endeavor to mix up the love story genre is remarkable.
