‘Shot on iPhone 14 Pro | Fursat – A Vishal Bhardwaj film’

If a 30 minute short film compels you to hit the fast-forward button, should you be watching it at all? Shot completely on the Apple iPhone 14 Pro as the movie title declares, ‘Fursat’ stars Ishaan Khattar and Wamiqa Gabbi as leads Nishant and Diya whose relationship is challenged due to Nishant’s obsession with a device that lets him see the future.

The basic theme of the story how a man’s obsession with the future blinds him to the things he should be thankful for in the present. Nishant constantly attempts to tamper with the past after he sees the future but it doesn’t always lead to better outcomes. While the cinematography is undoubtedly captivating, for a 30-minute-musical the songs were uninspiring and sounded like a rehash of tracks we’ve already heard umpteen times in the past. If the point of the film was to serves as a long cinematic ad for the iPhone 14 Pro camera, they should’ve just made a 5-6 minute music video.

Ishan Khattar is a stunning dancer, he is graceful, fluid, captivating and one can only hope he gets a more interesting musical in the future to showcase his moves.

It’s a 5 on 10 from me. Watch it on YouTube.
