Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz (2018)
(Released: Feb 16, 2018)
Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz revolves around Archi or Archana (Geetanjali Thapa), a serial dater who makes a living writing internet memes and is addicted to a late-night radio show. Hosted by RJ Alfaz (Zain Khan Durrani), the show features its mezbaan narrating tales of love and longing in a shayarana andaz. When the two get connected by chance, a string of WhatsApp forwards play cupid. But his past restrains his social life and she suffers from a condition that impairs her confidence. No prize for guessing how they overcome their fears and trounce over their insecurities. But this goes beyond a love story and makes one reflect on the extent to which the messaging app in question consumes our life. Be it a silly joke or a discourse on life, receiving and disseminating it becomes a compulsive act for some.
