In just six minutes, Sukhbir Gill's ambitious short film IZZAT leaves you awestruck. The father-son conflict is absolutely relatable and the message through the movie moves you as a viewer.
Izzat is undoubtedly one of the most gripping short films made off late, especially in Punjabi language. The director (Sukhbir Gill) conveys his motive in a two minute conversation that the protagonist (Sukhbir Gill) has with his father (Isher Singh). The penultimate scene of the film and the final words of the father make you sit up and think hard about the impact of the outbursts of young children on parent's psyche.
Sukhbir Gill, Isher Singh and Raj Kaur underplay their part beautifully. Isher Singh's expressions to son's outburst are noteworthy.
Sukhbir Singh's direction is superior. Sukhjind Dhillon's music is in sync with the proceedings.
To all the youngsters reading this, please watch IZZAT and respect your parents.
