Road Trip is a short film to remember. With spectacular performances and a unique and beautiful story, here’s why it truly made my weekend and will surely make your day too!
Digestive Showtime has given us some engaging short films of late. My personal favorites being ‘Yorker’ and ‘Daughter by Law’. Super performances, well-thought-out plots, and brilliant climaxes are what make short films impactful and this platform has made a dent in the very competitive digital content space.
What Road Trip Is All About – and no, it’s not about roads
(No spoilers. I promise.)
Penned by Naeem Ali, Road Trip is a unique story about an unplanned journey that results in making monumental decisions. No matter who you are, where you are or what you do, you always come back home – to your roots. That’s where happiness and contentment lie. Because like they say, all roads lead to home.
Relationships are on the cards
Road Trip is telling us why we can never really run away from what (and who), will always be ours! Sometimes, when we immerse ourselves in work, it might be more about what we are opting out of, or choosing to stay away from, that keeps us so busy, rather than what we are drawn towards. Road Trip will help us find our way home!
Sound a tad too philosophical? Well, it is, but it’ll all be clear once you spend those 30 minutes taking it all in.
The narrative does a subtle job of making us appreciate the little things in life, which we at times take for granted. Whether it’s nok jhok with siblings, arguments with parents – they’ll always be our happy place and no matter how old we are, we can always return to them – just like coming home – because the bond we share with them is everlasting!
Oh, and the night sky and campfire gave romantic fall evening vibes! Director Sultan Ghani Afzal and producer Danish Khawaja definitely hit the high notes by taking it outdoors.
We saw the versatile Feroze Khan as Ayaan, a young man who returns home after years, laikin uske dil mein bohat si baatein hain. Feroze beautifully portrayed Ayaan and made us sympathise with him too! Currently, we’re seeing Feroze in Khuda Aur Mohabbat 3, and previously we saw him in Khaani, Gul-e-Rana, Woh Aik Pal and many more. As always, his onscreen presence will take over your 30 minute viewing time!
Ahmed Majeed Agloria played Hamza, Ayaan’s younger brother, a child at heart and a free spirit at most. He is not confused about where happiness lies and how to make the most of situations – we have a lot to learn from him in keeping the child alive in us!
