No matter how 'happy' and 'relaxing' an extramarital relationship might be, it definitely leads you to an ugly situation someday - that's the plot of Neeraj Pandey's short film Ouch!.
All of 14-minutes long, the film stars actor Manoj Bajpayee and former Miss India Pooja Chopra in the lead.
The film revolves around a conversation between two married co-workers - Vinay (Bajpayee) and Priya (Chopra), who are in a relationship for the last three years. The duo who are in an extramarital affair, decide to tell their spouses about their relationship on a specific date, divorce them and move on in life.
And while Vinay discloses details about his relationship with Priya to his wife Anjali, Priya doesn't seem to be convinced about breaking up her marriage and starting life afresh with Vinay.
Although the two are conversing on a subject that is intense and serious, the actors' acting brilliance makes it light-hearted and fun to watch.
Pandey's short film Ouch! was first released at the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival 2016. Later, after its release on October 23 on Youtube, the film garnered a lot of appreciation online. In fact, the filmmaker's hilarious take on extramarital affair that Twitter users in splits.
