Romance being rekindled, a brewing love story between two friends, and the goosebumps that accompany our very first crush are a few of the many things to be explored in the upcoming film Love Shots by Ankur Tewari. From the makers of Man's World and Band Baaja Baarat comes their latest project—an anthology of six short films that explore the many facets of love. Shifting gears from the web series and testing the waters with the short story format, Y-Flims brings together an ensemble cast in six eclectic shorts, which leave no stone unturned in its endeavor to find true love.
Nimrat Kaur and Tahir Raj Bhasin rediscover romance in The Road Trip; in Fired, Salim Merchant and Tillotama Shome must survive a rough patch in their relationship; inspired by a true story, Saqib Salem and Shweta Tripathi explore the innocence of first love as they struggle to find some privacy in Koi Dekh Lega; The Big Date is about the story of two sisters who share excitement over a Valentine's Date featuring Saba Azad, Mohit Marwah and Rhea Chakraborty; veteran actors Farida Jalal and Kulbhushan Kharbanda prove that you're never too old to love in Scandal Point.
'These are six short films, all about love. It's meant to be like a tequila shot, which leaves you high on love,' says Ashish Patel, Y-Films Vice President. Each bite-sized story is accompanied by an original soundtrack. Following the release of a compelling trailer, Love Shots is going to premiere on Youtube from the 8th of March, one story every week. We got in touch with director Ankur Tewari, to dig a little deeper.
What inspired you to explore love and its multiple facets?
The idea to put six love stories together was brewed in the ideas lab at Y-Films. Ashish Patil and Aparna Nadig wrote a bunch of stories and knit together a bunch of really strong screenplays. I was brought in at that stage to take the project further.
Give us a blurb on the film in your own words.
Love can be crazy, love can be twisted, and love can be unpredictable. These films explore love beyond boundaries and conventions, breaking stereotypes. The thing that holds them together is unabashed audacity to love.
