Watch: Imtiaz Ali’s The Other way

Time only knows how to move forward, it has always been this way and will continue to walk the same path. Maybe that is why stories are mostly told in a chronological order. They are easier to understand in this pattern.

In its latest short film with the Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films, Imtiaz Ali has tried to do something different. He has played with the concept of time and narrated a story from the end to the beginning and he has made it all look very effortless.

The Other way is a story of a girl (Real name – Shreya Chaudhari) who runs away on her wedding day only to come back all happy and jolly. She was with a photographer (Real name – Pavail Gulati) who might appear as her love interest but is not. He is just the last daring step she took before tying the knot.

The film was both written and directed by Imtiaz Ali. It has been produced by Window Seat Films. The movie is definitely a good experiment. One must understand that it is not at all easy to narrate a story in this particular way. Hence, Imtiaz and his team deserve a lot of applauds for not just attempting this film but for also justifying it completely.
