Imitiaz Ali has always been a master storyteller and with his latest brief film, The Other Way, a executive shows that during a helm of each large preference lies a towering of doubt. This film is a story of a bride, Rewa, who starts doubt her preference to get married only hours before her wedding.
The film’s story unfolds in a non-linear way. We are introduced to a bride who is moments divided from her marriage yet as a film progresses, we find that even yet she is removing married to her longtime boyfriend, who she claims she’s in adore with, she is confronting her biggest fear ‘What if we get wearied once I’m married?’.
Before any large decisions are to be made, one prefers to customarily pronounce them out and such is a box with Rewa as well. In this case, Rewa finds comfort in a stranger, Arjun. A photographer who she has met only one day before her large day. She wants to voice her fears, her hesitation, her doubts, her life as a mother and a leisure that she fears losing. She needs confirmation before she indeed takes that jump of faith.
Dialogue essay has always been Ali’s strongest fit and with a dialogues and voice over of this short, Ali entirely convinces us that clever wordplay can get a courtesy of a assembly in only a few seconds. The film’s opening voice-over by Ali himself talks about a bizarre inlet of time and with this, a spectator is hooked. The 15-minute film is focused on a fears that cloud a decision-making. Imtiaz presents these fears in a pleasing proceed where he reveals a outcome right during a start yet it is a tour that we hang around for.
Rewa, played by Shreya Chaudhry, is vivacious. Her eyes pronounce a thousand difference and broach a inner digression of a impression in essential moments. Pavel Gulati plays Arjun and yet he is only a matter in Rewa’s journey, his opening creates we wish to watch some-more work by a actor. Edited by Manish Jaitly, a non-linear proceed of this brief bookmarked with photographs provides a punctuation that gives this brief film an free flow.
The Other Way by Large Short Films is a provide for Imtiaz Ali fans and during 15 minutes, it is only ideal for those who were scarred after Jab Harry Met Sejal.
