When Harry (Billy Crystal) argued with Sally (Meg Ryan) how men and women could never be friends, it left us wondering if there was much truth in that. Perhaps, it called for speculation about each friend of yours that may or may not have been ‘worthy’ of sharing anything more than a platonic relationship. While some rubbished the idea, for some it brought immense hope. Hope often turns out to be light even in the darkest of times. On the same lines is Michael Dowse’s latest romantic-comedy, What If. Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan in the lead roles, the film takes you on a journey that begins by chance for the two protagonists and ends on a note that’ll have the viewers wanting to fall in love over and over again. The film questions that very aspect of our lives. If you’re already in love, is it possible for you to fall in love again. What if something like that does happen? How do you handle the complications that a relationship that’s not so platonic brings with it?
