Everything is Fine Youtube Short Film Review
Asha and her husband come to Delhi, she wants to go sightseeing and boating, this desire of hers like every other desire is side-lined by her husband, Asha it’s not just about boating but it represents all her wishes which were never fulfilled, all the sacrifices she made and continues to make Credits to the director for casting Sema Pahwa as the middle-aged woman we could see our mothers in, which made it even more heart-wrenching.
Asha’s pain speaks to us when her husband orders her to make tea or when he doesn’t listen to her. Natasha finds her mother on the terrace crying, when Asha reveals that she has had enough of this marriage, Natasha scolds her just the way any mother would scold their daughters wanting to end an abusive marriage, life comes full circle. Natasha is not ready to accept that her parents aren’t perfect, that they are human too. She tries later to make up for it but it’s too late.
When the title of the short film appears it hits us that many women like Asha have to repress their true feelings and say that ‘ Everything is Fine’, sometimes they manage to force a smile too. After seeing this film, I went and hugged my mom and tried to understand her pain, but that was never enough.
