Smita Jayakar is the Queen of Hearts in a new short film celebrating Valentine’s Day spirit. Created by Connect.1, the short film shows a new way of celebrating love

with a twist The movie featuring seasoned actors like Darshan Jariwalla and Jayakar defies the stereotypical interpretation of Valentine’s Day. The story revolves around the Mehta family. The men are competing with each other to take the queen of their heart on a date. While the son is trying hard to get his mother’s (played by Jayakar) attention by showering her with flowers and soft toys, it’s interesting to see how the husband (Darshan Jariwalla) is not far behind to compete with his son to have her as his Valentine by reading out romantic shayaris. However, nothing goes as planned and there is a twist waiting in the end for the Mehta boys. Jariwalla says “It shows how this day should be celebrated with entire family and not in isolation with your partners. It’s a fun film and the whole family can sit and enjoy this video.”

Jaykar says, “I felt quite the centre of attention. In this unique story, we are trying to change the outlook of Valentine’s Day in a fun, playful way. After all, it’s all about loving your family!” The short film is written and directed by Abhimanyu Kanodia and is released today across Connect.1’s and Some Like it Short Youtube and Facebook.

Similarly SnG Comedy has come up with a short film called Friend Zoned featuring Kritika Kamra as the boss of a company looking for a boyfriend position. Available on YouTube, it is a hilarious take on what girls looks for in a boyfriend. The film captures the frustration of an ‘ideal’ candidate, who is rejected despite having all the traits for a ‘lasting solution’.
