After the emotional short film IZZAT, Sukhbir Singh Gill is back with yet another heart-rending Punjabi short film MAI TE HEER. His debut attempt brought him accolades from all around and MAI TE HEER would definitely stamp the fact the Sukhbir is an immensely talented filmmaker.
MAI TE HEER is very relatable, and that's where the film scores. We often hear news about boy falling for a girl to such an extent that he takes his own life once he is deserted. Lead actor-director Sukhbir's choice of subject is where the movie gets brownie points.
MAI TE HEER wastes no time in introducing the sadness of the protagonist. The dialogue exchanges between mother-daughter hint of a calm before the storm. Sukhbir's entry assures that the family is going to experience a major blow. Although the storyline in the initial 6-7 minutes of the film is easy to guess, but once the poetry starts, the film attains dizzy heights in terms of writing and direction. The final moments of the film leave the viewer moist eyed.
In just 11 minutes, Sukhbir manages to make a connect the viewer to the characters of the film. Gurpreet Bhangu is the apt choice and does a wonderful job. Sukhbir Gill is a gifted actor. Watch his plight in the final two minutes of the movie. Upma Sharma is first-rate and Gurleen Kaur does a splendid job.
MAI TE HEER is highly recommended. Keep your handkerchiefs along while watching the film.
