Imtiaz Ali is back with another masterpiece of his, The Other Way, a short film that shows the other side of today’s society. Let’s just start by saying that even though some people feel that Imtiaz Ali follows a similar storyline in his works, his films are just a mirror of what society is. If he keeps it raw, it becomes art, if he adds dramatic pain and humour to it, it becomes a superhit Bollywood movie. Other than mirroring youth, one interesting concept that this short film reminds you of is, where your fear can lead you.
The Other Way is about a bride who meets a photographer two days before her wedding. Do they fall in love or they don’t? That is for you to see but the two very interesting points made in this Imtiaz Ali creation are about how fear can lead you to some unnecessary decisions and how freedom is something that can neither be given nor be taken from you, as an individual you have all the freedom, the only question is how do you prefer to use it?
While the story that has been showcased may get a divided audience, the main concept of fear and freedom will definitely strike a chord with you. Watch it now!
