Exchange Offer – A Short Film To Watch
A short film from India …dramatic like Bollywood but still worth a watch.
Written and directed by Saunak Mitra, “Exchange Offer” is a Hindi short film that portrays generation gap and loneliness in old age beautifully. It’s synopsis reads “Shiv Kumar Pant – a retired school principal of St. Stephan’s, Delhi, lives with his caretaker, Bisveswar as his son, Rishabh, lives in California with his wife and a one-year-old son. Leading a mundane life, Mr. Pant has found solace in poetry writing, typing on his old computer. One day, the computer suddenly goes off. He asks Rishabh to make a complaint to the manufacturing company to send a service engineer to repair the computer. The rendezvous with the service engineer at his door brings to him an incredible Exchange Offer and a bouquet of nostalgia and surprises.”
This movie is a great, layered story on the complexities of relationships with the passage of time, the haunting aspect of getting old alone, the technological gap and the desire and the necessity of change. The story builds up slowly and takes you in an emotional roller coaster but at the end will leave you feeling satisfied from within. This movie features M. K. Raina, Taher Shabbir and Surendra Rajan in the lead roles.
Without any spoilers, this is what we can say! Go ahead and give this a watch! And do let us know how you feel afterwards with your reviews in the comments section!

This happy-go-cynical, wide-eyed comedian is best known for his unusual jokes, jokes that only he could think (and appreciate). Hence, he is out to form a cult with those who resonate with his sense of humor. He once mentioned, “…My belief is that I want to get laughs on the basis of the written word. When I am on stage, I like to stand at one place and talk. The idea is to make it look less like a performance, if possible. The audience should feel the host is talking to them.” One of the most out-there comics out there, Karunesh Talwar is a young comedian and writer who made his way into the local comedy scene by winning several open-mic competitions, including the Comedy Store’s RAW
