The Great Flicks

Four shorts explore the surprising ways in which unexpected catalysts inflame the uncomfortable emotions simmering under fractured relationships


Love stories are not always about the blossoming of love. They are at times about the insubstantiality, if not complete absence, of love. But do all tales of marriages marred and relationships ruined make for twisted narratives that are uniformly engaging? In Ajeeb Daastaans, produced by Dharmatic Entertainment for Netflix, they do not. One of the four shorts that make up the anthology – Neeraj Ghaywan’s Geeli Pucchi (Sloppy Kisses) – is a film of exceptional quality. Its social commentary rests upon an unflinching recognition of the complexities of caste and gender identities
