Comfort Film and OpenIndie Present:
Sulemani Keeda (Pain In The Ass) 2014
Plot: Life is hard. Take it from these guys. They live in the bollywood capital of the world but want to make thoughtful introspective subtle films about awkward tension. "More of a reflection of the real world," to quote Adaptation which no doubt was one of this film's inspirations. It's interesting to see the western influence of filmmaking reflected back at us. Or maybe it's not the west that inspires this film but simply just life and falling in love which in its universality makes the film so relatable. Except a few parts that just don't seem real. It's hard to know how much that's invention of the writer vs how much we are gaining an actual portal into the lives of struggling creatives living in Mumbai. Ultimately the story is about focus and direction. What matters the most to you? Success or happiness. And is it possible to have it all?
