There’s a lot of Bollywood movies that give you solid relationship advice- DDLJ teaches you to marry the creep who waves your bra in your face, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai taught you that a guy will only love you once you’re pretty and feminine and so on and so forth.
Here’s another short film that gives you equally crappy advice- ignore your relationship problems till things get out of hand. Blindspot starring Padmaavat actress Anupriya Goenka and Mohenjo Daro actor Diganta Hazarika is the story of a couple who’ve not figured out how the concept of marriage works. She, along with the help of a friend, try to ‘fix’ her marriage without confronting her husband. Okay kids, side note- if your relationship is in troubled waters, communication is the only thing that’ll help you salvage it.
Pooja’s plan is to be cold and distant (because that’s what adults should do, play hard to get) and just as she thinks that things are getting better, she comes to realize that her husband wan’t cheating on her. Happy ending, we think, but just as the film’s about to end… there’s a twist.
Watch it here:
The movie turns out to be a double commentary on turbulent relationships- while it is wrong to jump to conclusions, blind faith can also come back to bite you in the ass. So in conclusion: people are jerks, relationships are hard work and friends are of no help when it comes to matters of the heart.
On the plus side if you’re single, or newly jilted, this is a feel-good movie for you.
