White Shirt – Short Film Review

White Shirt is a take on urban relationships and break-ups. This is the first directorial of Sumit Arora and he has got the essence quite right. The film is a step away from the general melodrama of a love story and attempts to show the solemn silence of love, which is slowly fading away. 

The film revolves around Avik (Kunal Kapoor) and Vaani (Kritika Kamra) who are going through what we can call a relationship limbo. Where Vaani is trying hard to move on and let go of someone who broke her heart and cheated on her, Avik is trying to apologize. He calls her every now and then to ask if she is doing well under the pretext of his white shirt that he purposefully left inside Vaani's cupboard while moving out. Vaani keeps the shirt as the last thing that reminds of her broken love and reminisces the good old days.

White Shirt review - BookMyShow

Everyone knows the pain of a lost love and how hard it is to let go someone or something they love so much. The white shirt here is a metaphor of Avik's and Vani's love story, how initially it was a reminder of the essence of someone she loved and the way it starts to stink after the breach in her trust. Sumit has kept the relatability quotient high with the kind of conversations both characters indulge in. The entire short film keeps you engrossed and makes you wonder what will happen next with the back and forth of past and present.

Kunal Kapoor has been shown to be an apologetic guy who will make you feel sorry for him until the subtle hints of his authoritative attitude start to show, as the movie progresses. His acting skills score full marks for it. Kritika Kamra is a strong actress and she has lived up to this. Her curt face and the disinterested tone of speaking show how hard she has to try to stop herself from asking him to come back. Without a single tear, she successfully portrays the disdain in her character's life and the pain she is going through. In 18 minutes, this film demonstrates much more about human separation than many long epics do.

This film demonstrates the struggles of a couple post break-up and unlike the usual mentally abusive ones, it rather soothes you with an ending like this.

    What she does is right in her own way. As she is an independant girl.
