Co-incidences have been the base of movies since a very long time but hardly are they seen forming the crux of a short film. Half ticket is one such rare story of co-incidences and luck that will leave you with a smile on your face.
The film revolves around Ayaan (Naveen Kasturia) and Rhea (Gunjan Malhotra) who happen to have really hectic jobs. It starts with Ayaan giving his boss an excuse on a Saturday for not being able to attend an office meeting on Sunday and Rhea handling irritating clients on a Saturday night. They both co-incidentally or say luckily get their respective half ticket to a blind date with each other the next day i.e. Sunday. They meet each other the next afternoon and the rest is how they spend a fun day together at the turf.
The film initially looks like a potential love story but doesn't turn out to be like that. It is just a positive picture of a blind date, where two strangers meet and spend a decent Sunday. There's no pretentiousness and excessive glamour in the film that makes it pretty relatable, specially the part where they both crib about their jobs.
The plot of the movie doesn't have anything that you don't expect but the realistic treatment makes you doubt the implausibility. It is a script that is pretty predictable yet unpredictable. The best part of this short is that you can just spend 25 minutes to let go off stress and feel good. It is not a heavy movie with an intent but just a light hearted piece of cinema.
