Happy New Year! If you’ve had a busy, festive weekend – followed by an equally busy week – chances are, you’d like to stay in for the coming weekend. If so, I’ve got just the recommendations for you. In fact, a Double Rec – A Movie and a Short Film.
The Movie – The Big Sick – Based on the true love story of stand-up comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily Gordon, this funny and heart warming film makes a great weekend watch – if you haven’t already seen it. Kumail, a Pakistan-born comedian and Uber driver hooks up with Emily, a Psychology student and a one-night-stand soon turns into something deeper. Kumail’s parents, on the other hand are looking for a Pakistani bride for him and he doesn’t have the guts to tell them about Emily, fearing he would lose his family. Learning about this, Emily breaks-up with Kumail but when she contracts a sudden and serious illness, Kumail gets a second chance. However, before that, he has to deal with Emily’s parents…..You can watch it on Amazon Prime Video.
The Short Film – Chhuri – Starring the talented Tisca Chopra, Anurag Kashyap and Surveen Chawla, this splendid short film is about how a wife (Chopra) deals with her cheating husband (Kashyap) and his lover (Chawla). Slick and sharp like the knife it is named after, this 12 minute short film is a must watch.
