To some it may seem slow-paced, too some – not interesting enough, and too some – not serious enough to deal with a topic like mental health. I personally loved it.
I have had some serious phobias in the past and I know how silly, baseless, and yet disturbing they can be. When it comes to depression or other mental health related topics, content creators have always focused on how gruesome things can be and how dark a patient’s life is.
Lutf is no-gyaan short-film. That is what I liked about it the most. No darkness, no seriousness, and no lectures on how one should deal with phobias.
Mona Singh always brightens up the screen. Without her, someone going to a psychologist because she is unable to eat ice-cream wouldn’t have been easy to digest. She has that positive vibe which makes you believe that this female can go to any extent in order to live life to the fullest.
And I guess, this is the message Lutf is trying to pass on to the viewers. No matter how big or small your fears are, face them, beat them. Don’t let them come in the way of living your life to the fullest.
Since I have been through it, I got the message Lutf gave out in a very subtle way. You give this film a shot and let me know whether you liked it.
P.S.: If you don’t learn to enjoy your life, you will at least learn to enjoy your ice-cream.
