A Simple Pleasure

By Saurabh Arora with 7

drama · Short Films

The short film opens on a note that is diametrically opposite to the sentiment the narrative will eventually leave you with. The manner it adopts to unfold itself is endearing, innocent and sincere as it tells the story of a couple in quarantine. Within this confined existence, with only each other for company, what would be that object or act that will become a simple pleasure of their lives? And more importantly, what would be its significance?

The film raises these questions, and provides an answer through convincing performances and notable chemistry of the characters. Without explicitly mentioning any of it, and in its own unique manner, it succeeds in presenting the viewer with a universal story of a household in lockdown.
